We are all familiar with the Lowes Home Improvement Store. They supply many contractors and homeowners with materials all over the country. Just this week, they awarded the honors of the titles of "Overall Supplier of the Year" as well as "Building Products Supplier of the Year" to the Owens Corning Company, a manufacturer of building materials and glass fiber reinforcements.
Each year, Lowes rewards vendor performance by recognizing those companies that are going above and beyond for consumers. Lowes appreciates these suppliers for providing quality products and services for them to market, and they show their gratitude by honoring a company in five of their largest business areas: building products, kitchens and bathrooms, home décor, outdoor living, and hard lines. The five selected companies compete for the "Overall Supplier of the Year."
Owens Corning has been in business since 1938 and has become a world leader in energy efficient building products. They have perfected the technology of glass fiber reinforcements and have incorporated them into the production of several products, including fiber optic cables, bridges, hockey sticks, and insulation. They continue to produce industry-leading materials and strive to increase their focus on sustainable living.
This may not seem so significant, but it does serve a valuable purpose. The awards highlight outstanding companies so we know who to buy from, while also rewarding quality and hard work. If you are tackling a home improvement project this spring, you might pay a little closer attention to which brands you purchase at your Lowe's store.
