Builder Partnerships Names Lennox Industries Manufacturer Partner of the Year 2021
Lennox Industries, an industry leading manufacturer of residential air conditioning and heating, has received the 7th Annual Builder Partnerships Partner of the Year award. The award was presented during Builder Partnerships' 16th Annual Networking Reception at the International Builders' Show.

This award is presented each year to a manufacturer demonstrating excellence in supporting our builder members. Lennox has been a long-time manufacturing member of Builder Partnerships and fully engaged, offering strong incentive programs, participating in our seminars, and sponsoring our events.
"Lennox has been with Builder Partnerships since the early days. They have been our partner in the truest sense of the word," said Terry Nickels, COO for Builder Partnerships. 

"The Lennox team collaborates with us to make sure our builder members receive great customer service, a quality product, and timely communications. They bring us new partners on the builder side and we work together to make sure everyone creates positive long term relationships. It was my pleasure to present Lennox with the award for 2021. It was a challenging year to say the least. However, our relationship thrived, and in so doing, so did our business connections."
Builder Partnerships was founded 17 years ago to create a networking vehicle between the mid-tier private home builders and the building material manufacturers. As strong market leaders, this group of builders is the heart of the building industry. They typically are too small for the manufacturers' national sales teams, but too big to be delegated to the local distributors. Builder Partnerships creates the networking and collaboration to fill this void.
“In any given year, receiving the vendor of the year award from Builder Partnerships is quite an honor, but receiving this award for 2021 makes this award even more special," said Kevin Suarez, Senior Product Marketing Manager for Lennox.  

"The support and engagement of the Builder Partnership team (Chuck Shinn, Terry Nickels, Emma Shinn and the entire team), during some of our industry’s most challenging times, is a testament of an exceptional partnership. The collaboration and communication between the BP, the builders, the Lennox supply chain team, and the Lennox Residential New Construction leadership team is the source of our joint success. When you lean in and engage this group, you will win!”
