July 29, 2021: East Penn Manufacturing, the US battery manufacturer, announced on July 27 that it had been recognized by Honda North America with its 2020 Supplier Sustainability Award.
This is the third award the battery firm has received this year.
In February Forbes and Statista ranked East Penn as one of America’s Best Large Employers for 2021. This was the third time East Penn has been named to the list.
In January the firm received the Most Valuable Supplier Award for achievements in 2020. The Award was granted by the industry’s trade association, MHEDA (Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association) to less than 10% of all member companies. This was the sixth consecutive year that East Penn Manufacturing Co. has earned this Award.
The Honda award is all the more notable in that Penn received the top honour out of all 743 suppliers evaluated.
This was East Penn’s first time being recognized for this award, previously receiving a different sustainability award for Green Excellence in 2015.
