Norbord has been awarded the title of Jewson Supplier of the Year 2014, as voted by over 600 branch managers throughout the UK.

Jewson has 5,000 suppliers in the UK and this award builds on Norbord’s past success when it was awarded Supplier of the Year in the Timber & Sheet category. The award was announced at the Jewson Suppliers’ Conference in Harrogate, North Yorkshire where the Norbord team hosted a stand.

David Webb, regional manager south, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be voted as Jewson Supplier of the Year. This award is voted by all of the branches within the Jewson network and is testament to the individuals who service the account every day. It’s a prestigious award as there are some big brands that service Jewson across many different categories, so to be voted number one is fantastic.”
