Owens Corning, a world leader in building materials and glass fiber reinforcements, announced today that it was recently named both the 2008 Overall Supplier of the Year and Building Products Supplier of the Year by Lowe's.

"What a tremendous honor for Owens Corning to win these prestigious distinctions from Lowe's from among thousands of its world-class suppliers," said Karel Czanderna, group president of Building Materials. "Our job is to focus on customers, quality and innovation, and we try to do that by seeing the world through the eyes of our customers to understand their needs. We will continue to work with customers like Lowe's to help them win in the marketplace."

The awards are based on three categories of vendor performance: financial impact, product, and service and support.

Lowe's names one Supplier of the Year for each of its five main business areas: building products, outdoor living, kitchen and bath, hard lines, and home decor. From this group, Lowe's selects one Overall Supplier of the Year.

Owens Corning was selected the Overall Supplier of the Year for the first time, and was named the Building Products Supplier of the Year for the third time.
