Element Fleet Management has again been recognized as Supplier of the Year by Axalta, a paint and coating manufacturing company.

"We are very grateful to have received this award," said Jon Parker, Element's senior vice president and chief commercial officer. "It's a true representation of our hard work and commitment to satisfy our customers by delivering superior products and services."

With the award, the company recognized Element for their quality service in providing exceptional products and services to Axalta customers worldwide, the fleet management company announced.

"Congratulations to Element and all of our 2017 Supplier of the Year award winners who are being recognized for their contributions to Axalta and for being great business partners," said Charles Shaver, Axalta's chairman and chief executive. "Having suppliers who understand us and know our priorities has been extremely important to our success and positions us well for continued strong performance."

The Sparks, Md.-based Element also received the award from Axalta a year ago.

"It's an honor for the Element team — especially knowing that we were selected based on our ability to meet specific quality, service, technology and value criteria, as well as meet Axalta's compliance and sustainability requirements," Parker said.
