This award is given annually to one supplier in each of three categories and recognizes the desire to go "above and beyond" what is expected in supporting Rockwell Automation's business.  The award is named after the late Clarinda Young, who as a member of Rockwell's sourcing organization possessed the "whatever it takes" attitude to get the job done and delight the customer.

"The award for OLDI is a reflection of a body of work over time."  said John Cleveland, Director of Strategic Sourcing.  "Your organization has also been very responsive and creative in meeting the productivity expectations of Rockwell Automation, embracing our lean six-sigma resources to assist in identifying manufacturing process improvements which will ultimately drive productivity."
