Blackwell Burke P.A. Wins 3M Supplier of the Year Award

Award recognizes suppliers who improve 3M’s competitiveness

Blackwell Burke P.A., a go-to law firm for high stakes litigation, was honored with the 2018 3M Supplier of the Year Award in recognition of the firm’s contribution to improving 3M’s competitiveness.

This year, 3M recognized 16 suppliers — among thousands in its global supply base — for world class performance in providing products or services. These suppliers were identified and rated based on strategic spend, contract compliance, actions taken to improve 3M’s relevance and overall supplier performance (quality, delivery, responsiveness, cost, technology roadmaps). Blackwell Burke was honored at an awards ceremony at the 3M Innovation Center.

“Supplier collaboration is critical to supply chain success,” said Debora Fronczak, vice president, 3M Strategic Sourcing. “We are fortunate to work with great suppliers who are committed to fostering a relationship with 3M.  These partnerships help us to serve our
customers with innovative and valuable solutions. It’s important that we recognize our most outstanding suppliers, and that’s what this award is all about.”

Blackwell Burke partner, Jerry Alcazar, accepted the award for the Firm: “It is uncommon for a law firm to receive a Supplier of the Year recognition given the universe of thousands of vendors a multinational company uses all around the world. Blackwell Burke is proud to receive this prestigious recognition, which affirms our commitment to providing superior client service,” said Mr. Alcazar.
