IBBI hands out its annual awards

Independent Boat Builders Inc. recently presented awards at its annual purchasing conference.

IBBI honored Foam Supplies, Inland Plywood and Piedmont Plastics as Supplier of the Year. The companies were chosen on the basis of a survey IBBI members completed that rated suppliers in six key categories: product quality, customer service, delivery, technical service, accurate invoicing and warranty administration.

"These three suppliers have provided outstanding service across the board to our members. It is only appropriate that they have been recognized for their efforts and awarded our Supplier of the Year distinction," IBBI controller Jodi Sanders said in a statement. "Determining the winners each year is always a difficult task because all of our sponsored suppliers show tremendous dedication to our membership and to the IBBI goals."

IBBI also handed out Outstanding Partner Awards to companies that narrowly missed out on the top awards - C.H. Robinson, Vectorply, Fin-Addict Marine, and Syntec Industries.

The IBBI group also participated in an exclusive mini-trade show that gives its members the opportunity to spend time with IBBI key suppliers and see what's new for the upcoming model year.

After the trade show, members voted Syntec Industries the winner of the IBBI Innovation Award for its Spinning Steering Wheel Medallion.
