The IronmongeryDirect team celebrate at the ECMOD Direct Commerce Awards.

IronmongeryDirect scoops best brand at Direct Commerce Awards

Published:  12 June, 2015

IronmongeryDirect has been recognised as the ‘Best Multi-Channel Brand’ at the ECMOD Direct Commerce Awards.

The title was given to the direct commerce company at the prestigious awards for multi-channel retailers and direct b2b marketers, after it demonstrated its exceptional profit growth to judges.

Over the past seven years, IronmongeryDirect has increased its turnover by over 380% with a 20% year-on-year average growth since 2006, despite the building and construction trade suffering a difficult economic climate in recent years.

Entries into the Best Multi-Channel Business or Brand category were judged on their overall performance, taking into account areas such as the company’s core values and customer retention during 2014.

Wayne Lysaght-Mason, managing director at IronmongeryDirect, said: “We’re extremely pleased to receive the award for best brand. We pride ourselves on putting our customers first and on providing an exceptional delivery service, and so we are thrilled to be recognised as a reliable and trustworthy company.

“We position ourselves as ‘masters of our trade’ because we are dedicated to understanding our customer’s needs and are constantly reviewing our strategy to make sure that tradespeople receive the best products at the right time and the right price. The ECMOD Direct Commerce Awards was a great platform for us to showcase our achievements and demonstrate our commitment to providing excellent customer service.”
