BURNDY®, a leading manufacturer and provider of electrical connector solutions and application tooling, and a subsidiary of Hubbell Inc., is the proud achiever of the prestigious Platinum 2013 IDW Band of Excellence! The company was honored live at the IDEA E-Biz Forum on Friday, September 27th, on account of its remarkable industry leadership and outstanding effort.

 The 2013 IDEA E-Biz Forum (themed “Dream it. Do it. Let the Innovation Begin.”) was conducted from September 25th - 27th at Hilton Bonnet Creek, Orlando, FL. The IDEA E-Biz Forum (the only eBusiness event dedicated to business-to-business leaders in the electrical supply chain), was co-hosted by IDEA, NAED, NEMA, EFC and NEMRA.

Introduced in 2012 by IDEA, with support from owners NAED and NEMA, the IDW Bands of Excellence program is a part of a continuous effort to populate the Industry Data Warehouse with more robust product marketing content and in recognizing manufacturers for excellence, in which it has been very successful.

The 2013 bands have been more closely aligned with the NAED Supplier Scorecards and the rating system measures each manufacturer’s completion percentage for providing essential marketing content to their trading partners through the IDW for 85-100% of their stock products.

The Bands of Excellence Qualifications are:

  • Platinum: 100% stock products in the IDW populated with all SAID elements
  • Gold: 95-99% stock products in the IDW populated with all SAID elements
  • Silver: 90-94% stock products in the IDW populated with all SAID elements
  • Bronze: 85-89% stock products in the IDW populated with all SAID elements
