Georgia-Pacific Professional (GP PRO) was presented with a 2015 Partners in Performance Award as part of Grainger’s annual supplier recognition event in Chicago.

This is the ninth year in a row GP PRO received the award.

Through this award, suppliers are recognized for excellence in several categories, including responsiveness, information integrity, on-time shipping, management commitment and order fulfillment. Each Grainger supplier receives ratings throughout the year for its respective performance in each of these categories. Out of Grainger's more than 3,500 active suppliers, less than 1% are chosen to receive these annual awards.

“This award emphasizes our continued commitment to bringing exceptional service and top-quality product offerings to valued customers like Grainger,” said Scott Light, president of GP PRO. “We value our strong relationship with Grainger and are proud that they continue to include us in such an elite group of companies with this award for supplier excellence.”

Fred Costello, Grainger's vice president, global product management, said, “Our customers expect quality products consistently delivered to the right place at the right time. This is not possible without the commitment, dedication and outstanding service of our Partners in Performance suppliers.”
