Johns Manville, a Berkshire Hathaway company and leading building products manufacturer, was honored as a 2018 “Partner of Choice” by David Weekley Homes, the nation’s largest privately-held residential homebuilder.

This is the sixth year that Johns Manville has been awarded this honor since 2011.

“We’re honored to be recognized by David Weekley Homes for our product quality and service, an effort our employees strive to deliver each day,” said Tommy Knappich, vice president and general manager of Building Insulation at Johns Manville. “We value our partnership with David Weekley Homes and look forward to continuing to work together to fulfill our shared goals and match the evolving needs of customers.”

David Weekley Homes launched the supplier evaluation system and “Partner of Choice” award in 2004 for its over 100 National Trading Partners across a range of industries with the goal of delivering the best possible service to homebuyers. The survey gauges customer feedback on supplier performance in the categories of product quality and service. Results of the unique evaluation system allow David Weekley Homes to analyze performance, provide specific feedback to suppliers and recognize performance, in turn helping the company achieve its goal of working in harmony to deliver solutions to customers.

“Our in-depth survey process helps us select the strongest companies to assist us in delivering an unequaled experience for our homebuyers, and Johns Manville has met that challenge head on,” said John Schiegg, director of supply chain services at David Weekley Homes. “Our goal is to deliver the best in design, choice and service to our customers, and our National Trading Partners play a vital role in helping us fulfill that goal with each and every homebuyer.”
