MasterCraft announces they have recognized two of its top suppliers, JL Audio and G&T Industries, with the Preferred Supplier of the Year awards. These hard-earned and coveted awards are given to those supplier partners who exhibit exceptional performance in meeting or exceeding quality, on-time delivery, cost and innovative technology goals established at the beginning of each model year. The purpose of the Preferred Supplier group is to build long-term relationships with a select group of strategic suppliers that ultimately create long-term value for MasterCraft and its customers through unparalleled quality, reliability and progression.
MasterCraft has created two separate categories for its Preferred Supplier program:
Preferred A Suppliers are those suppliers that are characterized as having a highspend, significant intellectual or innovative properties and are extremely important to the overall operation of the boat.
Preferred B Suppliers are characterized as having a significant spend and arepartnership minded.

JL Audio Recipient of the 2014 Supplier of the Year award for the Preferred A
G&T Industries Recipient of the 2014 Supplier of the Year award for the
Preferred B Suppliers
