September 28, 2011 — West Chester, Ohio – ClarkDietrich Building Systems was recently recognized as the 2011 "Supplier of the Year" by the Marek Family of Companies president and CEO, Stan Marek, during its annual management meeting and awards ceremony in Houston, Texas.

"There are few organizations in our business that do it with such class. Everything you need to know about Marek is encompassed in a simple handshake. The integrity they bring to relationships, whether you are an employee, customer or supplier is what sets them apart," said Bill Courtney, President and CEO at ClarkDietrich Building Systems.

ClarkDietrich and Marek recently collaborated on the construction of several Houston-based projects including the Texas Children's Hospital, Shell Technology Building and the Hess Towers.

"Our supplier relationships are vital to our success and we're proud to have ClarkDietrich as a trusted partner," said Stan Marek, CEO of Marek Family of Companies.

The Marek Family of Companies is a drywall subcontractor that focuses on commercial and residential construction, with offices in Houston, Austin, Dallas, San Antonio and Fort Worth, Texas and Atlanta, GA.

Although ClarkDietrich is a recently formed joint venture, the combined company's partnership with Marek dates more than 20 years. This is the fourth Marek "Supplier of the Year" for ClarkDietrich; previously as Clark Steel in 1999 and 2004 and ClarkWestern in 2008.
