Standard Electric has recognized Rittal Corporation with its Top 3 Supplier trophy. The recognition is the result of a stringent and ongoing supplier evaluation designed to enhance efficiency, improve performance to customers, and drive results.

“Our supplier evaluations enable us and our manufacturers to identify issues, develop action plans, and hold each other accountable for results,” said Larry Stern, Standard’s president. “At the end of each year we recognize the best of the best.” 

“The fact that the criteria for this award are based on Standard’s scorecard of service and responsiveness, going beyond mere sales volume competitions, makes it extra special to Rittal,” said Mark Binder, regional channel manager for Rittal. “In my years working with Standard, I’ve learned to appreciate how challenging it can be to score well, how high their standards are. It demonstrates we are working consistently well together to mutually grow our business.”
