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.

“This is a very prestigious award as it is voted on by APA member companies, who are our customers,” says WVCO Vice President Tony Vuksich. “I couldn’t be prouder of our WVCO/Pre-Tec team.  To win this award everyone needs to work for common goals. I think that this award epitomizes what team is all about.  It takes a tremendous effort put forth every day to provide our customers with great quality products, terrific service, and innovation”.
