July 10, 2012, Frankfort, NY – Northern Safety and Industrial has received Eastman Chemical’s prestigious Supplier Excellence Award for 2011. This is the third consecutive year that Eastman has honored Northern Safety with a Supplier Excellence Award.
The award recognizes Northern Safety’s outstanding customer service, communication, and integrity. The Company was selected because of its consistent performance in providing Eastman Chemical with high quality products and working to improve their efficiency and competitiveness in today’s challenging market.
Only 19 of Eastman’s over 5,500 suppliers received the Supplier Excellence Award. Over 97 percent of their suppliers never receive the award even once, making Northern Safety’s multi-year honors an even greater accomplishment.
Sal Longo, President and CEO of Northern Safety believes the award is truly a team effort. “We’re extremely proud of our partnership with Eastman Chemical. The work we do requires both companies to work together towards success. Receiving this award confirms that our partnership is, indeed, successful,” says Mr. Longo.
