Award recognizes suppliers who improve 3M’s competitiveness
Full-service agency Colle McVoy was honored with the 2017 3M Supplier of the Year Award in recognition of the company’s contribution to improving 3M’s competitiveness.
This year, 3M recognized 15 suppliers -- among thousands in its global supply base -- for world class performance in providing products and/or services. These suppliers were identified and rated based on strategic spend, contract compliance, actions taken to improve 3M’s relevance and overall supplier performance (quality, delivery, responsiveness, cost, technology roadmaps). An awards ceremony will be held Aug. 4 at the 3M Championship in Blaine, Minn.
“To be recognized for such an exceptional award is a tremendous honor,” said Christine Fruechte, CEO, Colle McVoy. “We greatly value our partnership and look forward to continuing to drive business growth for 3M.”
“Our suppliers are critical to our ability to execute our business strategies and benefit our customers,” said Jose Varela, vice president, 3M Sourcing Operations. “We are fortunate to work with great suppliers who are committed to maintaining a partnership with 3M and helping us service our global customers with the innovative and valuable solutions they expect. It’s important that we recognize our most outstanding suppliers, and that’s what this award is all about.”
