KBSA Supplier Awards winners announced
The now traditional KBSA Supplier Awards were announced last week following votes by KBSA members for those suppliers who had excelled in their service to them in 2014.
Members voted Product Supplier of the Year to built-in brand leader NEFF – which is the fourth time NEFF has been voted best in class.
Training Provider of the Year was awarded to Miele, while the award for Best Display Support was awarded to Cosentino for its Silestone brand.
KBSA corporate chair, Malcolm Scott, said: “These awards are genuinely deserved, as they are voted for by KBSA retailers, and are therefore based on the actual performance of these brands.
“It is always a great pleasure to reward those brands that do support the independent specialist directly, and this year’s winners should be proud of their recognition. While some may be surprised to see Neff being so well supported by our retail members when there are stock shortages, these shortages are at least in part because the new product offering has been so well received by consumers.”
These awards, which are now in their sixth year, are based on the results of the KBSA annual members’ survey in 2014 and reflect members’ opinions on those brands that have performed well during the year.
