Knauf Insulation is delighted to announce that it has been named Supplier of the Year at this year’s Builders’ Merchants Awards, which were held at the Lancaster Hotel in London.
The UK’s leading insulation manufacturer impressed the judges with an award entry that detailed the lengths it had gone to in developing and producing product and service offerings specifically for merchants. Responding to merchant needs, in-depth product training, tailored POS materials in branches and dedicated merchant support are just some of the areas where Knauf Insulation is focusing its resources to help merchants run their businesses as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
Lydia Sharples, Head of Communications Northern Europe at Knauf Insulation, commented: “We were very pleased to have been shortlisted as one of three finalists at this year’s Builders’ Merchants Awards, but to have actually been named Supplier of the Year is brilliant.
“We firmly believe that developing strong relationships with our customers is key to an effective supply chain and so winning the award is a testament to the hard work our dedicated resource teams undertake to support our merchant customers day in, day out. Indeed independent and national builders’ merchants have grown significantly within the construction industry, so it is of utmost importance that suppliers like ourselves help merchants increase the package offers that they have available for their contractor customers – big or small.”
