Grainger Partners in Performance Award
Partners in Performance awards celebrate suppliers who exceed company performance expectations.

BOX Partners was recognized with Grainger's 2022 Partners in Performance Award. Grainger, the leading broad line distributor of maintenance, repair and operating supplies, presents the award to a select group of suppliers for outstanding performance throughout the year.
