Alan J. Lacy, Sears Holdings Corporation's vice chairman and CEO, honored Whirlpool Corporation on April 12 with two Partner in Progress achievement awards. Whirlpool received the awards for excellence in Product Repair Services and Advertising/Creative.

Started more than 20 years ago, the retailer's 'Partner in Progress' awards are presented annually to a select group of supplier companies that have provided Sears, Roebuck and Co. with quality products and services, from apparel, appliances, and tools to marketing, transportation services and technology. More than 10,000 sources competed for this award in 2004.

"It is truly an honor to have been recognized again this year by our largest trade partner for excellence in providing consumer solutions," said David L. Swift, executive vice president of Whirlpool North America. "These awards demonstrate that the mutual commitment between Whirlpool and Sears to deliver innovative, customer-driven products and advertising to market is working."
