SC Johnson Honors Six Global Suppliers

Helping SC Johnson to Serve Consumers and Make Great Products

RACINE, Wis., September 19, 2018 – SC Johnson, the trusted maker of many of the world’s No. 1 household brands, today announced special recognition for six of its highest-performing global suppliers. The company recognized these six suppliers – out of approximately 3,000 of the company’s direct material and third-party manufacturing suppliers across virtually every country around the world – at an event in Chicago.

“SC Johnson’s annual supplier awards are a highly sought-after recognition of the excellent work being performed by our global supply partners,” said Kelly M. Semrau, Senior Vice President – Global Corporate Affairs, Communication and Sustainability at SC Johnson. “The six award-winning suppliers are proof that great products require great suppliers. Over the past year, our supply partners have demonstrated significant achievements in many of the attributes that contribute to SC Johnson’s ongoing growth and success: quality, customer service, value and innovation excellence.”

Supplier of the Year
SC Johnson presented its most prestigious supplier award to TGT, a leader in plastic bag zipper technology. SC Johnson recognized TGT for the attributes that make it both a world-class company and a world-class partner: outstanding quality, exceptional customer service, differentiating value, commitment to sustainability and superior innovation. Founded in 1987 and headquartered in Bangkok, Thailand, TGT has evolved from a plastic bag manufacturer to a zipper bag expert. 

Quality Excellence
SC Johnson works with all of its suppliers to deliver high-quality products backed by robust and transparent testing methods. For consistently delivering products that meet the company’s high standards and for driving speed and value across the supply chain, SC Johnson recognized Crown, a leader in metal packaging technology based in Philadelphia. Crown has operations in 36 countries and employs more than 24,000 people across Asia, Eastern Europe, South America and the Middle East and North Africa. 

Customer Service Excellence
For SC Johnson, excellence in customer service means best-in-class delivery performance. For its unwavering commitment to customer service excellence, SC Johnson presented this award to Logoplaste, a manufacturer of rigid plastic packaging based in Cascais, Portugal, with more than 59 factories located in 16 countries.

Innovation Excellence
SC Johnson is committed to innovative products. This year the company recognized MGK, a family-run company based in Minneapolis that develops branded and custom insect control solutions, and Orlandi, based in Farmingdale, New York, which specializes in technologies to help market fragrances and cosmetics. 

Value Excellence
SC Johnson works with suppliers to discover and explore new opportunities for cost reductions. The company gave this award to WestRock, a global supplier of paper and packaging products based in Atlanta, with more than 300 manufacturing facilities, design centers, research labs, and sales offices around the world.
