Simpson Strong-Tie was named the 2015 Vendor of the Year for the Building Materials products category by Do it Best Corp. This is the fifth consecutive year Simpson Strong-Tie has received this distinguished honor.

Do it Best Corp., the only U.S.-based full-line, member-owned distributor of lumber, hardware and building products in the home improvement industry, awards Vendor of the Year honors in 23 product categories, along with three top awards across all categories. The Do it Best Corp. team measures several criteria in choosing its award winners, including sales growth, customer service, product quality, communication and ease in working with the vendor. Simpson Strong-Tie was recognized at the Do It Best Vendor Excellence event last October.

“As we work to help our independent member-owners grow their share of the market, we work with thousands of great vendors across the country and around the world. That Simpson Strong-Tie has maintained a winning streak of five consecutive years as our top building materials partner speaks highly of their exceptional products and outstanding service to our members,” said Gary Nackers, Do it Best Corp. vice president of lumber and building materials.
