Mississauga, ON — For the fifth straight year, Canadian Bearings Ltd. has been awarded the Owens Corning Supplier of the Year Award. The award was presented at Owens Corning’s 2006 Canadian Review meeting held in Guelph, Ont.

Owens Corning’s Canadian MRO Team Leader, Donna Robinson, says that, “For the fifth straight year Canadian Bearings [has] raised the bar and exceeded [its] contractual obligations by delivering cost savings to our plants in excess of 26%.”

“Not only do they consistently deliver the results, they have taken customer service to a new level,” says Robinson.

Canadian Bearings has provided seamless implementation of a custom supply chain solution that involved taking over management of all plant procurement processes in the Owens Corning Guelph plant location in May 2006.

Sergio Restagno, Canadian Bearings’s national account manager responsible for Owens Corning, says, “I’m really proud of our sales teams in the Scarborough, LaPrarie, London, and Kitchener branches for their continued efforts and focus on the documentation of value and delivery of solutions that promote improved productivity at the Owens Corning plants they service.”

“Our high savings performance is a key deliverable that ties to our strategy as a distributor partner focused on delivering and documenting solutions,” Restagno adds.
