RTP Company Receives Eaton Corporation Supplier Award

RTP Company was singled out as the only thermoplastics compound supplier to receive the 1997 Supplier Award from Eaton Cutler-Hammer in Lincoln, Illinois. The award cites "recognition of outstanding service, quality product, and superior performance." Accepting the ward on behalf of RTP Company were Bret Garrison, Sales Engineer, and Steve Clemans, Director National Accounts, who attended a recent Supplier Day even at the Lincoln facility.

Contributions made to Easton Corporation’s IDEAS program were key factors in earning this prestigious award. "Over the years, we have submitted approximately 50 cost-saving measures that have been accepted and implemented in various Eaton Corporation facilities," Clemans indicated. "Our suggestions help them save hundreds of thousands of dollars annually."

In addition to the 1997 Supplier Award, RTP Company has been designated a "preferred supplier" by the Eaton Corporation Plastics Council. Flexibility and speed are primary criteria for inclusion in this exclusive group.

"When we choose suppliers, turnaround time was on of our requirements," said Sandy Vinyard, Buyer II with Eaton Cutler-Hammer. "We need someone who can work with us, who is flexible and quick yet provides excellent quality. We have such short lead times and use a real just-in-time process. Sometimes you’re going to get caught begin short, and that’s where RTP Company has been very helpful in responding to our needs."

Because RTP Company’s plants are strategically located throughout the United States and Europe, they serve Easton Corporation’s global material requirements. A recently expanded Strategic Alliance Purchase Agreement between the companies now extends pricing and benefits to cover worldwide Eaton facilities and contracted molders.

"Proximity to our customers is crucial in meeting unparalleled lead times and providing superior customer service," added Bret Garrison, RTP Company Sales Engineer. "Multiple locations enable us to respond quickly, yet economically. Our new Indianapolis plant is just over 100 miles from the Lincoln facility, which makes it possible for us to fulfill their turnaround expectations."

RTP Company is pleased to announce that it’s plant in Beaune, France, has achieved ISO 9002 certification.
