Portacool Recognized as Outstanding Supplier by Grainger


Center, Texas — Feb. 24, 2015 — Portacool, LLC, the Texas-based global leader in evaporative cooling solutions, was presented with a 2014 Partners in Performance Award as part of Grainger’s annual show in Orlando.

Grainger, the leading broad-line supplier of maintenance, repair, and operating (MRO) products serving businesses and institutions, presents the award annually 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, fewer than 1 percent are chosen to receive these annual awards.

“Portacool is honored to be recognized again by the Grainger team in our follow-up year to being named the Supplier of the Year for 2013,” said Ben Wulf, CEO of Portacool. “We are privileged to have worked alongside this team for more than 20 years, and we look forward to building a strong, successful future together providing cooling solutions that impact the safety of our customers.”
