Deister Machine Company was rated number one among all Vulcan suppliers and was honored with the new 2006 Platinum Award — the highest distinction given by Vulcan Materials.

Deister Machine Company is located in Fort Wayne, Ind.

The company was evaluated by Vulcan Materials’ plant superintendents and area managers as to product quality, service and support, ease of transactions, value and overall performance.

Award candidates for bronze, silver or gold awards must achieve a set minimum point level and must be rated by no less than 25 plant managers or locations. To be considered for the newly created Platinum Award, suppliers must be evaluated by no less than 100 managers or locations. Only three Platinum Awards were given for 2006.

This new Platinum Award is an acknowledgement that we have continued to maintain our tradition and reputation as a leader in manufacturing, and in personalized customer relations and service.”
