Published:  18 March, 2015

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

On February 27, Mike Riseley, JG Speedfit’s UK director of sales, was presented with the awards at the Wolseley Supplier Conference – Plumbing & Heating Division.

“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,” Mr Riseley acknowledged. “I would offer my sincerest gratitude to all the individuals from both Wolseley and John Guest Speedfit who have played a role in our mutual success.”

Darran Rickards, managing director of bcg, added: “I was delighted to once again be able to present John Guest with bcg’s Supplier of the Year Award. 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, also said: “John Guest have aligned themselves very well with the Plumb Center business, and together we have developed some exciting initiatives that are delivering growth for both businesses. They maintain an excellent level of contact from the branches to senior management, and are thoroughly deserved winners of the PVF Supplier of the Year Award.”
