York Solutions, a veteran owned IT consulting firm that uses a non-transactional, value-based approach to provide clients with custom workforce solutions to fit their business needs to successfully complete IT projects, was honored with the 2017 3M Supplier of the Year Award in recognition of the company’s contribution to improving 3M’s competitiveness.

This year, 3M recognized 16 suppliers — among thousands in its global supply base — for world class performance in providing products and/or services. These suppliers were identified and rated based on strategic spend, contract compliance, actions taken to improve 3M’s relevance and overall supplier performance (quality, delivery, responsiveness, cost, technology roadmaps). An awards ceremony will be held October 3, 2018 at the 3M Innovation Center.

“It is an honor to receive this distinguished award,” said York Solutions’ CEO Richard Walker. “This recognition speaks to the value-based approach we take with our clients, like 3M, and showcases the dedication our team puts forth in always working closely with our clients as a strategic partner, with a holistic approach to helping solve IT and business challenges. It is especially meaningful to win the Veteran Owned Award given that our Founder, Bill Carr, is a Vietnam Veteran, and our commitment to helping veterans get back to work.”

“Supplier collaboration is critical to supply chain success,” said Debora Fronczak, vice president, 3M Strategic Sourcing. “We are fortunate to work with great suppliers who are committed to fostering a relationship with 3M.  These partnerships help us to serve our customers with innovative and valuable solutions. It’s important that we recognize our most outstanding suppliers, and that’s what this award is all about.”
