SC Johnson recognized Ball Corporation as a top supplier at its 2nd Annual Top Supplier Award ceremony on June 30, 2016, in Chicago. The event celebrated critical organizations, like Ball, that contributed to SC Johnson’s growth and underscored its commitment to quality and innovation.
Ball received the 2016 Quality Excellence Award for its “consistently high levels of experience and knowledge from a technical and business perspective.” SC Johnson also recognized Ball for significantly increasing can production to meet the growing demand for OFF insect repellent and helping to combat the mosquito-borne illness epidemic in South America.
Jim Peterson, Ball Food & Aerosol Packaging chief operating officer, and Luis Galardi, Argentina tinplate general manager, attended the event to accept the award.
“At Ball, our commitment to quality and to our customers’ success is unwavering and a big part of our culture,” Peterson said. “Thanks to the dedication of our team in Argentina and a strong customer partnership, we are able to meet the needs of SC Johnson and are honored to be one of their top suppliers.”
