Phifer Inc. was recently named the first-ever Premier Supply Partner by Pella Corporation.

Alan Gray, vice president of sales for Phifer Incorporated, said, “Receiving Pella’s Premier Supply Partner award is a source of great pride to our company. This honor further validates our commitment to being the leading insect screening supplier by building excellent quality into our workplace, products and services.”

Pella began the selection process more than two years ago beginning with supply managers nominating individual suppliers. Nominations led to general performance reviews over the course of a year and examination of internal score card ratings that measured the suppliers’ product quality, business practices and lean production procedures.

“Phifer has been a trusted supplier of Pella for more than 40 years of our 90-year history,” said Kraig Koehler, director of supply chain for Pella Corporation. “Honoring them as our first- ever Premier Supplier Partner is a testament to their people and products.”
