Every August MFG formally thanks the suppliers that are an essential ingredient in the company’s success with a special recognition event. This year 59 guests joined the MFG senior management and purchasing team for a day at Quail Country Club in Concord, Ohio. Twenty-five companies were presented with awards by MFG’s purchasing team.

Owens Corning was selected as the 2013 Supplier of the Year and cited for excellent quality, on time delivery, technical expertise and — as this is a procurement event — competitive pricing. With three significant product launches underway in 2013, MFG had enormous challenges to tackle. Owens Corning generously provided timely and dependable on-site support that helped keep these new initiatives on track.

At the start of the day the group was briefed on MFG’s current business, new business and the challenges that lie ahead in the current year by MFG’s CEO Richard Morrison, COO Greg Tilton and Sales Director Alec Raffa.

As in prior years, Karen Rossetti from MFG purchasing was responsible for the attention to detail that resulted in an enjoyable day for everyone.
