Legrand® Named True Value Vendor of the Year
SYRACUSE, NY, April 28, 2015—Legrand, a leading provider of electrical wiring devices and home systems, has been named a Vendor of the Year by True Value.
The Vendor of the Year award recognizes companies that have helped drive the growth of True Value by delivering high fill rates and an extraordinary commitment to high-quality products, programs, service and support to the retail stores. Key metrics include retail sales growth, handled sales, handled margin dollars, handled rate, service level, turns, and gross margin return on investment.
“P&S exceeded the threshold for several of these categories in 2014,” said Bill Schwab, Global Product Merchant for the Electrical Department at True Value. “This, combined with their ongoing support, made this recognition an easy decision for our department.”
“We are immensely proud of our retail team and their work in developing the True Value account,” said Ken Ruh, Vice President/General Manager, Retail and Logistics, for Legrand. “New products, price management, excellent service, product cost reductions and other initiatives played key roles in this accomplishment and we are honored to be named among this year’s recipients.”
