Newmar Corp., a subsidiary of Winnebago Industries, recognized several suppliers and individual contributors for their supply chain performance for 2023 at its annual banquet held March 14 at the Sammlung Platz Event Center in Nappanee, Indiana.

The annual awards recognize suppliers for outstanding performance based on internal surveys measuring each supplier in multiple categories while interacting with Newmar’s purchasing, manufacturing, quality, service and engineering departments. A score of 195 of a possible 201 points were required for the suppliers to earn an invitation to the evening’s festivities.

“While we had many industry challenges to navigate, we had an amazing year of performance from our supplier partners,” said Matt McQuown, vice president of supply chain for Newmar. “There were 95 companies and more than 200 individuals in attendance, all of whom contributed greatly to Newmar’s continued success.”

Newmar’s president, Casey Tubman, kicked off the night recognizing the attendees. “I appreciate all the hard work our suppliers have done to continue to improve for Newmar. It was great to look around the room and see many who have been in attendance for over a decade, but at the same time, see many new attendees,” Tubman said.

In 2023, more than 500 suppliers were eligible to receive an award. Award recipients are recognized for their service, dedication and commitment to support Newmar.
