WVCO is thrilled to announce that we have once again been honored with the APA Supplier of the Year award! This marks the fifth year in a row we have received this esteemed award, and the tenth out of the last 14 years! The awards were announced last weekend, November 2-4, 2019, at the APA Annual Meeting held in conjunction with the EWTA Info Fair at the JW Marriott Starr Pass in Tucson, Arizona.

EWTA’s Supplier of the Year Awards are based on the quality and delivery of EWTA member products, equipment and/or services supplied to APA members, as determined by a vote of APA mill managers.
