SupplyFORCE, King of Prussia, Pa., held its annual Commitment to Excellence Awards ceremony for the Electrical Supply, Industrial Supply and Pipe, Valves & Fittings divisions on Jan. 30. Held in conjunction with supplyFORCE's 2007 National Meeting, the Commitment to Excellence Awards recognizes owner-members who have contributed significantly to the success of SupplyFORCE agreements.

In the Electrical Supply Division, Mayer Electric Supply Co., Birmingham, Ala., was recognized for Excellence in Sales Leadership; and McNaughton-McKay Electric Co., Madison Heights, Mich., was named Owner-Member of the Year.

In presenting the awards, SupplyFORCE called out Mayer Electric's record of consistently exceeding expectations when working to support SupplyFORCE sales and account management processes. Their areas of support range from lead generation to participation on contract development and contract service teams, contribution to pricing strategies, and working with key supplier partners.

SupplyFORCE recognized McNaughton-McKay as Owner-Member of the Year for its leadership role in delivering and documenting total-cost-of-ownership savings and exceeding their cost savings commitments. “They set out to earn every order when they are selected on a contract service team,” says a SupplyFORCE statement announcing the awards. “Early in 2006, a former SupplyFORCE/A-D member who was doing more than $1 million with a SupplyFORCE customer site was acquired by one of the chains. McNaughton-McKay worked with the SupplyFORCE national account manager and the customer to develop an effective transition plan; and committed the people and local inventory required to fully convert the facility in 90 days.”
