Vulcan Materials Co., a major producer of aggregates and other construction materials, has honored Michelin North America Inc. with 2017 supplier awards in two product categories: one gold-level award for off-road tires and a platinum-level award for on-road tires.
Michelin supplies Vulcan with a range of commercial and passenger tires for its manufacturing operations across the country.
The awards are based on feedback from plant managers at each of Vulcan’s facilities. The site managers are asked to rate their strategic alliance suppliers’ overall value. A platinum category award is achieved from suppliers receiving an average "overall" rating of four and higher.
“Michelin has received the gold off-road tire award for many years. But this is the first year for Michelin to achieve a platinum award for on-road tire supply,” says Mark Reeves, key account manager of Michelin North America. “Being ranked No. 1 among all suppliers is an enormous honor. On behalf of the entire Michelin team, we appreciate the opportunity to deliver our industry-leading products with our customer service."
