Equipment Marketers is Awarded Maytag's Quality Improvement Partner of the Year for 2010

BENTON HARBOR, Michigan (February 16, 2011) - Supplier quality management has always been one of the leading business practices for Maytag. Supply Quality is a critical aspect in today's competitive marketplace.

Companies that sell commercial products need to preserve their preferred supplier status to continue to be considered for future business. As a result, they are under pressure to ensure that their products continue to meet or exceed acceptable quality standards set by their customers. Hence, managing their own supplier's quality is very high on the agenda for Maytag.

It is critical for manufacturers to engage suppliers in all aspects of their quality management system, so that the supply-base is fully integrated into the Quality Management System. By doing so, manufacturers can dramatically improve their supplier quality.”

The management team at Equipment Marketers has made it a priority to help Maytag improve the quality of our products and services. The Service and Parts teams have worked very hard on this directive. Because of Equipment Marketers' commitment to Maytag, it is with great pleasure and gratitude that we present the first "Quality Improvement Partner of the Year" Award to Equipment Marketers!

It is a privilege and honor to work with your wonderful organization and we look forward to many more years of teamwork and interaction!
