This award goes alongside the 2020 Nisa Award for Best Direct to Store Supplier and follows successive awards in each of the last four years for great service and product innovation.”
David Suckling continued “This latest award reflects on every single member of every regional team. I salute everyone out in the field and everyone at the depots for their part in achieving this award. Whatever their role in our business, they will all have an influence on the experience of our customers.”
It also reflects on our head office sales and marketing team, who foster some amazing relationships with symbols and groups across the UK and NI. The whole head office team has had a part to play in making this happen – so big thanks to everyone.”
