Newmar Corporation’s annual review of its RV parts suppliers recognizes the Gold Heat team by elevating the motor home electric radiant floor heat mat manufacturer to Top 10 Premier Vendor status, according to a press release from Gold Heat.

Hillsboro, Oregon-based Gold Heat, a premier manufacturer of customized electric radiant floor heat mats for the motorcoach and RV industries, announced in a press release today (Nov. 10) that Gold Heat has been elevated to “Premier Vendor” status by luxury motorhome builder Newmar Corporation. Gold Heat has been added to Newmar’s “Top 10 Premier Vendor” status, which is awarded annually to an elite group of trusted and reliable Newmar parts suppliers.

During Newmar’s annual supplier evaluation process, Newmar team members reviewed Gold Heat’s ability to meet product demand consistently and reliably support the RV / motorhome floor heat product during 2020’s COVID business environment.

Newmar’s annual review recognizes suppliers for outstanding performance based on eight categories and selects its top 10 premier vendors.

Newmar team members evaluate all of their supplier’s performance through internal surveys. Gold Heat’s evaluation is based on a Newmar team member’s interactions with its purchasing, manufacturing, quality, service, and engineering departments. Suppliers must score at least 195 of a possible 201 points. Gold Heat scored a perfect 201 for the 5th consecutive year.

“Newmar and Gold Heat’s business values are well-aligned. As the industry comes out of the craziness that is 2020, it seems that Newmar and Gold Heat could face any challenge together. I’m proud to be chosen by them as a trusted supplier, “ says newly appointed Gold Heat CEO, Brian Bishop.

  • During the evaluation process, Newmar Corporation suppliers are evaluated on the following criteria:
  • Product quality & reliability
  • Ease-of-installation
  • Delivery & lead times
  • Technical support
  • Diagnostic support
  • Product development
  • Design support
  • Warranty

“I’m proud to be considered by Newmar as a trusted supplier, “ notes Bishop. “The Gold Heat team will continue to work hard to maintain our reputation and our Top 10 Premier Vendor status.”

Newmar Corporation, which was acquired by Winnebago in November 2019, has an industry-leading portfolio of premium motorhomes in the Class A Diesel, Class A Gas and Super C categories sold through a dealer network in the US and Canada.
