The Gustave A. Larson Company recently the 29th anniversary of its supplier evaluation program, Partners in Excellence and Quality (PEAQ). Five supplier winners for 2017 were honored at an awards dinner at the Blue Mound Country Club in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.
The PEAQ Program was created out of the desire of Karl G. Larson to find a means to show appreciation for the partnership between the Gustave A. Larson Company and its business partners. The companies honored with the 2017 PEAQ Award were Heatcraft Refrigeration Products, Allied Air Enterprises, Packard Inc., Nu-Calgon and Mitsubishi Electric US Cooling and Heating.
The winners are chosen through an evaluation of data collected throughout the year considering various measurements of the quality of partnering in business. Every department within the GA Larson Company has input into the evaluation process and selection of its winning suppliers and sales representatives.
The primary goal of the PEAQ Program is to encourage open communication between GA Larson Company and its suppliers on issues, policies and procedures for the mutual benefit of both companies.
