Supply chain recognition for Embrass Peerless

Published:  10 May, 2016

The Fortis conference, which took place on 10 March at the Hilton Metropole in Birmingham, with the aim of ‘maximising sales opportunities’, sought to recognise those companies who have added value for the Fortis merchant network.

Embrass Peerless was named Supplier of the Year in the Plastics and Fittings Category; a triumph given added kudos by being shortlisted against major industry names including Hunter Plastics, J G Speedfit and Floplast.

Managing director Ian Barratt said: “It is very gratifying to win this award, especially when being judged against such strong competition. It is a real accolade for our business and all of the staff involved in supplying the Fortis group.”

Embrass Peerless is a family owned independent plumbers’ distributor based on the Monkspath Business Park in Shirley, Solihull, offering a very wide range of plumbing products. Ranges include brassware, compression, end feed, heating components, plastics and much more.
