Ice Industries Again Designated a Steelcase Premier Supplier
Ice's operational excellence exemplified by earning elite designation for the third straight year.
By: Ice Industries, Inc.
Awarded annually, Steelcase's Premier Supplier designation is a prestigious and difficult honor to achieve. Premier Suppliers must meet and maintain rigorous relationship, quality, and delivery standards to achieve this designation. Ice Industries' metal stamping facility in Monterrey/Apodaca, Nuevo Leon, Mexico is one of fewer than two dozen out of Steelcase's hundreds of direct suppliers to be chosen for the award. This is only the ninth time a Steelcase supplier has achieved this designation for three years in a row.
Ice Industries Deerfield and Mexico's Director of Operations, Francisco Beltrandelrio, noted of the achievement:
Ice has steadily expanded its role with Steelcase, and now additionally supplies multiple Steelcase locations out of its Ice Industries Grenada location in Grenada, MS; and its Ice Industries Deerfield location in Mason, Ohio. Ice Industries is pleased to have expanded its working relationship with Steelcase well beyond the scope originally contemplated. Paul Bishop, President, and Chief Operating Officer of Ice Industries explained, "Our success with any customer can often be measured by the organic expansion of our business to other locations once that initial learning curve is conquered, and confidence grows between the two entities at all levels."
Mr. Bishop summarized, "Steelcase is a unique customer. Not only are we motivated as their supplier to achieve excellence, but Steelcase has stated their desire as well to be the preferred customer for their supply base. Steelcase's approach guides our actions as their supplier every day."
Both Ice industries and Steelcase, Inc. look forward to continuing their shared philosophy of business excellence for many years to come.
