The Korte Company Earns USPS Supplier Excellence Award

in Companies/News

Agency recognizes completion of distribution center six months ahead of schedule.

The U.S. Postal Service has announced that The Korte Company is among five nationwide firms honored with Supplier Excellence Awards for the 2017 fiscal year, and the only Design-Build facility contractor included among the awardees.

“The Korte Company is very thankful for this award. It is an acknowledgement of a mutually beneficial strategic partnership between The Korte Company and the USPS that spans almost 40 years,” said Michael L. Tubbs, Executive Vice President and Project Executive for The Korte Company. “The USPS and Korte have together delivered the best-quality, best-value projects with superior design. We look forward to our future together.”

The award was given based on successful completion of the construction of an 818,000-square-foot Processing and Distribution Center in Portland, Oregon. The facility, which also includes 29,000 square feet of vehicle maintenance space, sits on 43 acres of reclaimed land adjacent to the city’s main airport.

Despite one of the worst winters on record, construction teams stuck to an aggressive schedule and finished the distribution center six months ahead of schedule. That helped the USPS realize overall operations cost savings.

Supplier Excellence Awards recognize Postal Service suppliers “that have demonstrated exemplary contract performance, innovation and supply chain integration, or played a significant role in helping the Postal Service reduce costs or achieve other strategic objectives.”

According to USPS Supply Management Vice President Susan M. Brownwell, the awards give the USPS “the opportunity to acknowledge—and celebrate—the contributions of our top-performing suppliers.”

“The focus that these suppliers have placed on performance, communication, innovation and continuous improvement has been instrumental in helping the Postal Service deliver high quality service to our customers,” Brownwell said.

Founded by Ralph Korte in Highland, Illinois in 1958, The Korte Company is a national leader in Design-Build construction and founding member of the Design-Build Institute of America. In addition to its Highland, Illinois headquarters, The Korte Company has satellite offices in St. Louis, Missouri; Las Vegas, Nevada and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
