Quality of Product and manufacturer reputation is important. But also, material certifications, lead times, and responsiveness. Some larger companies may have a great product with a great company reputation, but not have the customer service or lead times necessary, quite possibly due to growing too large and not expanding staff requirements as needed.
Certain projects requires certain timeframes, so this has deemed pretty important to our company.
