ICI Paints, Cleveland, said its Glidden brand has been named "Vendor Partner of the Year" by the Home Depot for the fourth time in the past five years. Maintenance Warehouse, a Home Depot subsidiary, also has given the award to Glidden for the first time since Home Depot launched the business four years ago. The awards recognize sales-volume increases, superior service, dedication to the paint category, and continued partnership with the retailers, ICI Paints said. Preston Bowen, vice president of Sales for the Glidden brand, said Glidden paint sales at Maintenance Warehouse in 2002 are "trending toward a 64% increase in total paint sales over 2001." Maintenance Warehouse is a supplier of maintenance repair and replacement products marketed to owners and managers of multi-housing, lodging and commercial properties.
