Toledo, Ohio-based Owens Corning has manufacturing, distribution, office and R&D facilities in 28 countries across the globe. Every year, Owens Corning recognizes its leading suppliers with awards in various categories, from safety, sustainability, innovation, value creation, risk mitigation, among others.
This year, Owens Corning recognized JLL with one of its highest honors — the Supplier Recognition Award. JLL’s team stood apart from more than 6,000 other suppliers who competed for the award through value creation and cost savings.
But, let’s rewind to where it all started.
Manufacturer Meets Real Estate Expert
JLL’s relationship with Owens Corning dates back to 1998, when it was initiated by The Staubach Company. It became official in 2001 when Staubach formalized its relationship with Owens Corning in an exclusive outsource agreement.
Since then—and following it’s merger with Staubach—JLL has helped the global manufacturer with asset and lease management, incentives consulting, strategic planning, and property disposition and acquisition.
Here at JLL, we are proud to work so closely with a best-in-class organization like Owens Corning, and even more honored to be recognized with its most prestigious award.
