Brunswick Award Recognizes AOC Quality and Service
October, 2011: Collierville, TN
For helping to improve bowling ball quality and providing exceptional delivery and service, AOC has been awarded the 2011 Supplier of the Year Award from Brunswick Bowling and Billiards Corporation.
Unsaturated polyesters help Brunswick offer an almost endless variation in bowling ball cover designs. But before the ball leaves the manufacturing plant, the surface must meet Brunswick's extremely high standards for quality. Brunswick and AOC research teams worked together to develop a resin formulation that dramatically improves surface quality.
Higher quality = lower costs
"AOC's 'No Crack' cover and core resin improved our Reynosa facility's ball quality and substantially reduced total costs," said Andrew Logg, Director of Supply Chain, Brunswick Bowling and Billiards. "In 2010 and 2011, AOC had 100% Quality and 100% On-time Delivery metrics. The relationship between the two companies is maintained more than effectively at all levels of management, and AOC constantly evaluates and makes changes were necessary throughout all aspects of the business."
The materials for Brunswick were developed at the AOC World Headquarters R&D Center and manufactured in the AOC Mexico facility. The Brunswick-AOC partnership is managed by Jeff Holshevnikoff, Managing Director, South America, under the leadership of Brian Parker, Global Managing Director.
"The entire AOC organization should be proud of this accomplishment," said Fred Norman, AOC President and COO. "To achieve the top award over 500 other suppliers is a testament to our commitment to quality and customer service."
