PARSIPPANY, N.J. — GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, has been awarded the Partners of Choice Award from David Weekley Homes, the country’s largest privately held builder. GAF received an “A” ranking for quality, one of only twenty-five suppliers to be recognized out of the 200 companies evaluated. This is the eighth time GAF has earned this symbol of excellence.

"We are excited to receive this award again and honored to be recognized for the focus GAF puts on quality across all aspects of the roofing system," stated Paul Bromfield, chief marketing officer at GAF. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with the David Weekley Homes team.”

Each year, David Weekley Homes challenges their trade partners to provide the highest level of quality products and superior service by ranking them with a proprietary scoring system. One thousand team members from every level of the company are surveyed on the homebuilder’s unique evaluation platform. Each supplier’s scores are averaged and an alpha ranking is assigned relative to other suppliers. Companies achieving a ranking in the top twenty percent are recognized with the nationally acclaimed Partners of Choice Award.

“To be world class, you must get up every day and perform at levels that exceed all others,” said Bill Justus, vice president of supply chain services for David Weekley Homes and chief architect behind the industry-leading supplier evaluation platform. “Our rigorous process allows us to measure each company’s performance and compare it across diverse industries. In essence, we have designed a practical way of measuring world-class excellence. Through their actions, our friends at GAF have proven to be the best of the breed in providing quality products to our team.”
