BSS Industrial has named Geberit as its ‘Supplier of the Year 2014’ at its annual Supplier of the Year event, with Pegler Yorkshire taking home the award for ‘Most Improved Supplier 2014’.

The manufacturer of sanitary and piping systems received the award following a year of strong sales and impressive support, from head office through to branch level. Pegler Yorkshire also impressed the judges, having progressed existing relationships, while improving its levels of service and support over the last 12 months.

BSS Industrial’s top suppliers are entered into the annual competition and judged on a strict criteria consisting of eight categories including delivery performance, branch-based plans, packaging, support in a crisis and collaboration with all elements of the business.

Andy Raine, commercial director at BSS Industrial, said: “Congratulations to both Geberit and Pegler Yorkshire who have worked with us to build a strong relationship in 2014; the result is felt by our customers who benefit from the reliable availability and distribution of these high-quality products. On behalf of BSS Industrial, I would like to thank them for their high standard of continued service and support.”

Mark Larden, managing director of Geberit, added: "It’s always fantastic when you get this type of award from one of your customers, its great recognition for all our hard work right across our business, both the internal and external teams. I would also like to thank BSS for putting on such a great Supplier Event."

BSS Industrial’s Supplier of the Year event was held at the Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel on 12 June.
