Midlands based Embrass Peerless has been named Plumbing Supplier of the Year for the second time in succession by the Plumbing & Heating Group, voted for by merchant members across the country.
The award was presented to Ian Barratt, Managing Director of Embrass Peerless, by the Chairman of PHG, David Pochin during the buying group’s annual awards staged at the Carden Park Hotel and Golf Resort in Cheshire. Also on the podium to see the trophy handed over, were Dan Martin, Key Account Manager for Embrass Peerless and Simon Chambers, PHG’s Plumbing Category Leader.
The judges of the PHG Plumbing Supplier of the Year 2015 said that the company had “beaten off stiff competition from other industry rivals” to take first place.
Barratt said: “I believe this award underlines the professionalism and commitment of our dedicated staff and would like to thank all of them for their efforts over the years, if it wasn’t for them, none of this would be possible.”
Amongst the criteria considered by the judges were not just the quality of products and services, but effort made in improving profit opportunities and market share, innovation, commitment to PHG’s competitive advantage, reaction to changing markets and administration.
The PHG award is the third industry accolade won by Embrass Peerless this year with the company also having been named Supplier of the Year by the Fortis merchant network.
