Blackmer Earns Excellence Bronze Award from DSCC
The Military & Marine Group within Blackmer, the leading global provider of rotary vane pump and reciprocating compressor technologies for the transfer of liquids and gases, recently received the Defense Supply Center, Columbus (OH) Recognition for Excellence Bronze Award for 2008.
The award goes to DSCC suppliers that meet the tenets of the DSCC’s Automatic Best-Value System. The computerized system evaluates product value, shipping efficiency, delivery time, payment systems and a supplier’s compliance with the DSCC’s wide-area work-flow system, which tracks sales and payments for equipment according to standards established by government inspectors.
The award was presented on Aug. 18, 2009, to Steve Wall, Blackmer’s Military & Marine Sales/Application Engineer, during the DSCC’s 2009 Land and Maritime Supply Chain Business Conference and Exhibition at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Only 83 companies, of the more than 5,000 with which the DSCC does business, received a Recognition for Excellence award. Blackmer also received a Recognition for Excellence award in 2003.
“Blackmer is honored to receive the Recognition for Excellence Bronze Award from the Defense Supply Center in Columbus. This award reflects our commitment to providing outstanding customer service and exceptional value to our customers. Blackmer received this award in 2003 and we are very happy to again be honored for our service in 2008,” said Wall.
