Electrolux Major Appliances - North America was named Quality Supplier of the Year for Hardlines in the prestigious Sears Holdings 2005 Partners in Progress program. The award recognizes the overall quality of products, service and support provided to Sears by its suppliers. The Hardlines category includes Sears' major appliances, outdoor products and hardware businesses.
At a special event hosted by Sears Holdings President and CEO Aylwin B. Lewis, Sears also named Electrolux Quality Supplier of the Year in the three specific categories of major appliances, technical and home services. Electrolux also received two Partners in Progress category leader awards for cooking products and home services.
"The six awards received from Sears, four directly related to quality, one for sales and marketing of Kenmore cooking products and one for home service support, says a lot about Sears' confidence in Electrolux's ability deliver innovative, high quality products consumers want," said Lee Heldt, Electrolux's vice president.
The Partners in Progress award is presented annually to supplier companies that provide Sears Holdings with quality products and services. Less than one percent of Sears' more than 40,000 suppliers win the coveted award each year.
