Knauf Insulation awarded Peter Buttle trophy

Published:  22 September, 2016

Knauf Insulation has been awarded the inaugural Peter Buttle Trophy by h&b Group for Supplier of the Year. The award recognises excellence of merchant suppliers, and was presented by Nick Lander, managing director of h&b, and Peter Buttle, chairman of h&b.

John Gaunt, commercial manager at Knauf Insulation, said: “Over a number of years we have developed and built a strong relationship with h&b, carrying out regular review meetings to discuss how we are performing together.

“The group was one of our key partners in the development of the unique Rock and Roll offer; a mixed loads delivery service of Knauf Insulation’s glass and rock mineral wool products, which allows an order to be delivered on one vehicle. We appreciated their willingness to work with us to enhance the offering. The award is recognition of the hard work put in by a number of people at both h&b and Knauf Insulation.”
