Day & Zimmermann (D&Z), the century-old, family-owned provider of construction, engineering, maintenance, staffing and defense solutions for leading corporations and governments around the world, has announced the winners of its 2022 Supplier of the Year Awards. Established in 1989, the annual awards recognize suppliers that contribute to D&Z’s ability to provide a higher quality of service to its customers and drive the company’s success.

Day & Zimmermann presents awards in two categories: overall Supplier of the Year and Diversity Supplier of the Year. The 2022 Suppliers of the Year are Alanson Manufacturing and Tri-State Motor Transit, and the 2022 Diversity Supplier of the Year is Klavon Design Associates.

Alanson Manufacturing is a family-owned producer of steel and brass components. Alanson is being recognized for their ability to meet aggressive and shortened deadlines, for their extremely competitive pricing, and for never having a quality issue in their time as a supplier for Day & Zimmermann’s Munitions group.

Tri-State Motor Transit is a leader in high-security transportation. They are being recognized for their handling of over 400 truckloads, totaling over 11 million pounds of materials from Day & Zimmermann’s American Ordnance site in Iowa. This represents more than 30% of the site's total shipments without incident, often under critical time constraints.   

Klavon Design Associates is a certified women-owned small business with a focus on collaborative planning and sustainable design. They are being awarded for stepping up quickly on a project that was lagging behind schedule.
