DALLAS Walmart recently honored Kimberly-Clark Corp. as “2009 International Supplier of the Year,” the supplier announced on Thursday.
Several key performance indicators that measure variables, such as sales performance, inventory metrics and delivery rates, determine Walmart’s International Supplier of the Year award. Kimberly-Clark outperformed on almost every indicator, and was the only supplier selected for the achievement.
“This award recognizes the strategic alignment of our teams with Walmart around the world,” stated John Scholes, VP Walmart international development at Kimberly-Clark. “This global award was earned for achieving business goals over a sustained period, and every country played [its] part. It was a real team effort, and we are delighted to be recognized for our efforts.”
This is the second award Kimberly-Clark has received from Walmart in 2010. Kimberly-Clark Brazil also was honored with Walmart Brazil’s Sustainability Award for providing the retailer with a 100% recycled bath tissue under the Neve Naturali brand.
