April 29, 2013
Company awarded for providing superior supply chain performance and delivering optimum solutions that reduce costs, enhance performance, and maintain high levels of service
Gaithersburg, MD-April 29, 2013 – At a ceremony held at the United States Postal Service headquarters in Washington, on April 24, Roth, a Sodexo Company, received the U.S. Postal Service’s 2013 Supplier Performance Award for providing superior supply chain performance and delivering optimum solutions that reduce costs, enhance performance, and maintain high levels of service.
Roth, a Sodexo Company, is the national leader in roof management, HVAC, and energy management solutions. The U.S. Postal Service has been a Roth client since 2011 when Roth was awarded management responsibility for the Postal Service’s roofing needs at over 10,000 owned locations throughout the United States.
“The United States Postal Service does business with more than 20,000 suppliers each year, so to receive one of these awards is a real achievement,” said Postmaster General Patrick R. Donahoe. “To excel, to consistently provide outstanding service to our customers, it’s essential that we have a world-class chain of suppliers. Working together, we deliver for the American people.”
In 2012, Roth’s holistic roofing services resulted in a $22 million deferment of expenditures and a 52 percent decrease in emergency cost per transaction for the Postal Service. With more than 2 billion square feet of roofs under management, Roth delivers similar results to public and private organizations across North America. In addition to roof maintenance, Roth’s innovative approach combines services such as budgeting, forecasting, emergency response, disaster recovery, professional design, quality observation and warranty management.
“We are honored to be a U.S. Postal Service award recipient – as a strategic partner we believe it’s critically important to help organizations and their people create efficient environments and improve performance,” said Steve Koneval, executive vice president, Roth. “Partnering also demands innovation, and we look forward to new opportunities to leverage our ideas, expertise and technology in assisting the Postal Service in meeting its sustainability goals while also lowering total cost of ownership for its roofing assets.”
“Today, we honor several of the nation’s most outstanding companies who happen to be superior suppliers and partners to the United States Postal Service,” said Susan Brownell, vice president, Supply Management and host for the ceremony. “You are the head of the class. Together, we continue making significant progress in expanding and strengthening our capabilities in achieving new heights in supply chain management. Through your commitment and expertise we deliver excellent service to our customers every day.”
