On Friday, February 26Aldo Coatings honored its vendor partners at its Fifth Annual Vendor Appreciation Luncheon held at Cabarrus Country Club in Concord, NC. Bob Brenk, president of Aldo, provided an update on the company’s growth over the past year and made the point that its great results would not have been possible without the support and contributions of its valuable trade partners.

Aldo recognized Univar as the company’s 2015 Raw Materials Vendor of the Year and Southeastern Freight Lines as its 2015 Logistics Vendor of the Year. The luncheon attended by more than 60 suppliers and employees included Willie Kramer, founder of Aldo who started the company more than 35 years ago.

“We consider our vendors as partners in our success,” said Brenk. “While numbers and performance are important, our success is a function of what our partners help us do each day, and we work hard to treat them with respect and appreciation they deserve,” added Brenk.
