PORTLAND, OR -- Contact Industries, a manufacturer of wood products, was recently awarded the Gold Level Vendor Award by Marvin Windows and Doors, a manufacturer of made-to-order wood and clad wood windows and doors, for the second straight year.

“We are very honored to be recognized as a Gold Level Vendor by a company like Marvin,” said Pete Himes, industrial sales manager. “Our Prineville, OR, manufacturing facility deserves all the credit for earning this award yet again.”

To determine if a vendor qualifies for Gold Level recognition, Marvin critiques the supplier in five areas: quality, delivery, technology opportunities, transaction accuracy, and overall supplier performance. The evaluation is performed monthly and Gold Level status is awarded annually based on the cumulative score. Contact scored near perfect in all five areas in 2006 and 2007.
