Willamette Valley Company Makes History and Receives Both “Supplier of the Year” and “Innovation of the Year” Awards at EWTA Info Fair!

Last week, the Willamette Valley Company team had the great privilege of joining fellow APA member manufacturers, EWTA members, suppliers and hundreds of other wood products industry professionals from all over the country in Bonita Springs, Florida for the 2016 Engineered Wood Technology Association (EWTA) Info Fair where we received a wonderful surprise.

For 2nd year in a row, Willamette Valley Company has been awarded EWTA’s “Supplier of the Year” in the Materials and Supplies category! This is the 6th time in 10 years our company has been voted “Supplier of the Year” by APA members at the premier supplier exhibition for North America’s engineered product manufacturers.

In addition to “Supplier of the Year”, the WVCO team was also recognized with the prestigious “Innovation of the Year” award for our new product Wil-Spray 500. This is the first time that the same company has won both awards in the same year! Two other EWTA member companies, Panel World and Kadant Carmanah Design, were also honored with the 2016 Supplier Awards during this year’s Chairman’s Dinner at the APA Annual Meeting.

These awards means a great deal to our company because it is a reflection of the quality and delivery of products, equipment and/or services, as determined by a vote of APA members. The 2016 “Supplier of the Year” winners will be featured in the 2017 spring issue of the Engineered Wood Journal magazine.
