CHICAGO - InnerWorkings, Inc., the leading global marketing execution firm, has been awarded ‘Supplier of the Year' for the second year running by global Scotch whisky and premium spirits company, Edrington Group, which produces leading brands such as The Macallan, Highland Park, Famous Grouse, and Snow Leopard.
The annual awards are organized by Edrington to recognize the contribution all the suppliers, from glassware through packaging, make towards the success of the business. A number of Gold, Silver and Bronze awards are presented, with each Gold winner competing to win the title of overall ‘Supplier of the Year'.
For the third year in a row, InnerWorkings was presented with the ‘Gold award' for its luxury packaging, leading to the ultimate award of being the ‘best of the best' for 2017.
When presenting the awards at the Piping Centre in Glasgow, Paul Robinson, Director of Strategic Procurement and Brands Packaging at Edrington Group, said, "Once again, our winners this year have continued to prove themselves as highly flexible and innovative in their approach to the numerous and varied challenges we presented them.
"InnerWorkings is very open and easy to work with and when things get tough we can depend on them to pull out all the stops to get us what we need, when we need it. They don't make promises they can't keep - but when they make a promise they will deliver."
Simon Bell, General Manager of InnerWorkings Luxury Packaging Division, said, "At InnerWorkings we strive to create stunning designs and deliver top quality luxury packaging, resulting in numerous awards over the years. However, the true mark of success is not one-off designs but recognition for a consistently high level of creativity, quality, and service. Receiving this fantastic accolade was an incredibly proud moment for us and an endorsement that the high standards we set for ourselves continue to be recognized by our clients."
This award follows similar recognition InnerWorkings has received in the highest supplier award categories from long-standing clients such as John Deere and Advanced Auto Parts.
