In recognition for “outstanding levels of service”, Ariston was named ‘Supplier of the Year’ at the annual YPS Plumbing Supplies Awards in December. All the senior and branch managers from YPS Plumbing Supplies – the specialist plumbing and heating division of Bradfords Building Supplies – voted in the awards, which saw Ariston emerge victorious in the face of some strong competition. Mark Eburne, CEO of Bradfords Group Ltd, presented Peter Lee, area sales manager for Ariston, with the prestigious Supplier of the Year trophy.
Ariston supports YPS Plumbing Supplies in a wide variety of activities, including merchant open days, breakfast mornings and networking events. This is assisted by marketing support, bespoke product literature and joint customer visits. Plus, the Ariston display and training vehicle (DTV) frequently visits YPS Plumbing Supplies stores, offering exclusive product demonstrations and training sessions.
Commenting on the award, Peter said: “We are delighted to have won an award recognising our levels of service, especially at such an early stage of our tenure with YPS Plumbing Supplies. They are a fantastic company to work with; I have already established some amazing relationships with their staff and customers, who have all been impressed with the quality of our product portfolio and levels of technical support. I am looking forward to working with the YPS team throughout 2019 to further strengthen their position in the heating and hot water sector.”
