Bronze: Journals & Notebooks
Even though it does its manufacturing in the U.S., Drum-Line has had to contend with raw materials shortages and other supply chain challenges. But that didn’t stop the Stuttgart, Arkansas-based supplier from providing top-notch service over the last year. It did so by ordering early, increasing the amount it normally warehouses and leveraging vendor relationships to keep products in stock. And it hasn’t been afraid to take a few risks. The result? A Bronze award in Journals & Notebooks, a Finalist spot in Calendars and lots of happy customers.
Big Wins: “I’m proud of how our team has navigated obstacles through the pandemic,” said Amberlea Barnes, CEO of Drum-Line. “We successfully balanced protecting the health and safety of our employees while remaining open and fully functional for our distributors. Our management team continues to work smart and resourceful to mitigate supply chain and labor disruptions and maximize efficiency.”
