IBBI hands out annual awards


Independent Boat Builders Inc. presented awards last week at its annual purchasing conference in St. Louis.

IBBI honored Marine Fasteners, Piedmont Plastics and Reichhold as Supplier of the Year. Those companies were chosen on the basis of a survey completed by IBBI members, rating suppliers in six key categories.

"These three suppliers have provided outstanding service to our membership over the last year," IBBI controller Jodi Sanders said in a statement. "It is an honor for us to be able to recognize them as our Suppliers of the Year. All of our sponsored suppliers show tremendous dedication to our membership and it was a close vote to determine the top three that truly went above and beyond."

IBBI also handed out Outstanding Partner Awards to companies that narrowly missed out on the top awards. Those recipients were CH Robinson, CPS Distributors, Foam Supplies and MPI.

New IBBI supplier Fin-Addict Marine was named Outstanding New Supplier.
