Acuity Brands Recognized as Outstanding Supplier by Grainger
ATLANTA, GA (March 17, 2016) – Acuity Brands was presented with a 2015 Partners in Performance Award as part of Grainger’s annual supplier recognition event in Chicago. Grainger, the leading broad line supplier of maintenance, repair and operating (MRO) products serving businesses and institutions, presents the yearly award to a select group of suppliers for outstanding performance throughout the year.
Through this award, suppliers are recognized for excellence in several categories, including responsiveness, information integrity, on-time shipping, management commitment and order fulfillment. Each Grainger supplier receives ratings throughout the year for its respective performance in each of these categories. Out of Grainger's more than 3,500 active suppliers, less than 1 percent are chosen to receive these annual awards.

Also, it reinforces to us our desire to continue to meet and exceed service expectations. We are most appreciative of the partnership we share with Grainger.”
