Wood-Mizer LLC, the world’s leading portable and industrial sawmill manufacturer, has recognized four suppliers for the level of support they provided the company in 2012. Each of these companies was recognized because they were considered peak performers for Wood-Mizer. Awardees were:

Hoosier Rubber and Transmission of Indianapolis, IN, a distributor of power and transmission parts was chosen for their outstanding customer service, local stocking levels, and technical support.  Wood-Mizer has enjoyed more than 20 years of committed partnership with this local company.

Standard Electric Company of Indianapolis, IN, a distributor of electrical components, was chosen for their outstanding customer service and support to our engineering department.  Their VMI (vendor managed inventory) program allows us to keep our inventory low and our costs down.  Their commitment and dedication to Wood-Mizer are very much appreciated.

Crosspoint Power and Refrigeration of Indianapolis, IN, the provider of Yanmar diesel engines, was chosen for their outstanding customer service and sales support, lean inventory initiatives, cost reductions and sponsored education seminars.
 Dayton Freight was chosen for their continued support for over 15 years in delivering Wood-Mizer’s product in a quality manner and on time as committed. As well, the sales and service support received exceeded industry standards.
 To establish the winners, the Wood-Mizer Purchasing team evaluated each of their suppliers on customer service, overall quality, delivery, cost management, and value-added support. The winners were hosted to a luncheon on February 14, 2013, and presented with a recognition plaque. The Wood-Mizer CREST Award stands for: Corporate Recognition Exemplifying Supplier Tenacity.

Mark Law, Procurement Director, said, “Our suppliers are an integral part of Wood-Mizer’s success and growth and it is important to us to formally recognize them. These awards are just a small gesture of our overall appreciation for providing the products that support Wood-Mizer’s desire to maintain leadership in the industry.”
