Tyndale was one of six companies honored earlier this month as Supplier of the Year by Arizona Public Service (APS), Arizona’s largest and longest-serving electricity utility. Tyndale was nominated by APS employees and subsequently evaluated on customer service and overall performance. Our commitment to sustainability, community involvement, and focus on health and safety also played a key role.
The honorees were chosen “not only for their outstanding customer service and ongoing commitment to our company’s core values, but also for setting an example that we hope other suppliers will emulate,” said Barbara Gomez, APS Vice President and Chief Procurement Officer. APS utilizes more than 4,000 suppliers; Tyndale was the only supplier recognized as an outstanding business partner in the Materials category.
Employees at all levels of Tyndale’s organization are known for the pride they put into protecting employees across the country. Tyndale regularly receives calls and emails from workers who have had a near miss, escaping injury to make it home safely at night because the clothing they wear – and that Tyndale provides – has protected them. This role in helping to save lives is a source of pride for our employees and forms the basis of Tyndale’s company culture. Our unscripted corporate video, Proud to Protect™, captures the story of Tyndale’s dedication to excellent service in the words of our employees.
“We are truly honored to receive the award and value our partnership with APS,” said Gail Whittenberger, CEO at Tyndale. “The award reflects our deep commitment to delivering the protective garments, services, and safety expertise our customers need to return home safely to their families each night.” Tyndale appreciates our partnership with APS and is Proud to Protect APS’s employees with our industry-leading flame resistant garments and managed services.
Tyndale became an early leader in developing and establishing Managed Apparel Programs as the industry benchmark. A manufacturer of Made in USA FR clothing and a leading distributor of other flame resistant brands, Tyndale has been delivering customized clothing services to leading corporations for 30 years. After expanding into a new distribution center in Pipersville in 2011, Tyndale opened a factory store in Williamsport, PA in 2012 and a second store in Midland, TX last year. The company will build on its success with the addition of a distribution center in Houston, TX later this year and plans to open a third factory store by 2015.
