This is the third year (since program inception) that Krayden has earned GOLD level performance. The company achieved the award by gaining the highest number of points on the 2008 Performance Tracking Tool, which measures the contributions of Electronics Material Distributors, toward Dow Corning North America Electronics Distribution goals.
�We have worked hard to change the way distribution is valued by our suppliers and customers,� said Wayne Wagner, Krayden's President. �This award and the previous three years of being a GOLD level performer shows that we are on the right path. The award encompasses all aspects of distribution performance. I do have to admit we may be at an advantage since Krayden, Inc. has never been about having the most product lines. In the end, the customer and supplier need a distributor who can represent their needs and products from a technical aspect as well as from a logistic standpoint. To me, that is more of what this award measures.�
Arthur Hanlon, Global Director of Sales for Dow Corning's Electronics Business noted, �This prestigious recognition for Krayden, Inc. is well deserved. To win this award under the market conditions during late 2008 is noteworthy. It speaks to the outstanding management of Krayden and to the resilience and focus of its committed workforce. We at Dow Corning appreciate�Krayden's outstanding contributions toward both our success and the success of the customers they serve.�
�The Distributor of the Year Award is designed to recognize outstanding distribution performance for Dow Corning electronics products. The criteria include promotion of new products, targeted growth opportunity identification and development, value-added services including solutions, business-to-business excellence and financial performance. These measurements are valuable in highlighting those distribution partners who provide the highest level of support to Dow Corning's customers,� commented Lori Arthur, Channel Manager West US/Mexico for Dow Corning's Electronics Business.
