And the Award Goes To…

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve been shortlisted for Materials Supplier of the Year at the prestigious Construction News Specialists Awards 2015. The final stages of the judging process will begin in the New Year, with the awards ceremony itself taking place on the 18th of March 2015.

The event is highly respected, so we’re extremely proud to be shortlisted and believe that it’s largely because of our knowledgeable colleagues, strong supply chain partners and loyal customers.

So what have we did we achieve last year?

Well we’ve added over 41,000 new product lines to our vast portfolio, providing customers more choice and better access to the latest innovations, such as the Nest Learning Thermostat.

We launched the Pro-Build Tour, a free event for trade professionals to learn about the latest products, best practice installation methods and changing building regulations.

In our quest to address the skills shortage and champion construction as a rewarding career choice, we’ve attended more events to talk to young people, including being a Lead Competition Sponsor at ‘The Skills Show’, (see our video for a round-up of the event). Alongside investing in our own people and bringing-in fresh talent to our business of course!

Our commitment to customer service has never been stronger – in 2014 over 50,000 of our customers were asked to complete a survey on their experience with us. This is helping us to respond to customer needs and adapt our services.

Finally this year we were also voted a Superbrand – a title reserved only for businesses that have established themselves the finest reputation in their field; so this year has been an incredible one and our thanks go to all our colleagues, partners and customers.

Fingers crossed we’ll win the accolade of Materials Supplier of the Year – and continue the same high-quality service into 2015!
