VTech received the Walmart Supplier of the Year Award in the toy category. Walmart, one of the nation’s largest retailers, presented the award at its annual Supplier Growth Forum held February 26-27 in Rogers, Arkansas.
“We are honored to be recognized by Walmart and receive such a meaningful acknowledgement from a valued partner,” says Andy Keimach, president, VTech Electronics North America. “We are proud of the work we’ve been able to accomplish together and look forward to continued success with our ongoing partnership.”
The Supplier of the Year Awards are presented to the leading supplier in each major product category within Walmart. More than 4,500 suppliers attend the annual event, when Walmart lays out its strategy for the upcoming year and elicits partnership from suppliers to drive growth.
In 2018, VTech’s Explore & Write Activity Desk was named to Walmart’s Top Rated for Kids toy list, the sixth consecutive year a VTech toy was handpicked by kids for a spot on the list. VTech and Walmart also have a history of successful collaborations for exclusive product launches, including most recently, Chase Me Casey. This is the first year VTech has received the Toy Supplier of the Year award from Walmart.
