JG Speedfit wins supplier of the year

For the second consecutive year, JG Speedfit has accepted two Wolseley Supplier of the Year Awards – Plumb Center (Pipe, Valves, Fittings) and bcg Distribution.

Mike Riseley, JG Speedfit’s UK director of sales, was presented with the two awards at the Wolseley Supplier Conference – Plumbing & Heating Division, that took place at the Ardencote Manor Hotel, Warwickshire.

Mike said, “It is humbling to be recognised for our achievements, however, it must be said that it is a collaborative approach to our business relationships that make these awards possible. I would offer my sincerest gratitude to all the individuals from both Wolseley and Speedfit who have played a role in our mutual success.”

Darran Rickards, managing director of bcg, said: “bcg and John Guest have been working closely together now for over two years to provide improved and enhanced services to the independent sector to the benefit of all. Together, we are able to offer our customers a range of options and choices on the supply of Speedfit product that they would not be able to enjoy if our partnership did not exist and this has been the essence of our success.”

Phil Viner, senior product manager of Plumb Center, said: “John Guest has aligned itself very well with the Plumb Center business, and together we have developed some exciting initiatives that are delivering growth for both businesses. It maintains an excellent level of contact from the branches to senior management, and is the thoroughly deserved winner of the PVF Supplier of the Year Award.”
