Bostik has been voted Lightside Supplier of the Year at h&b Group’s annual supplier conference. The h&b Group now has over 100 merchant members and more than 350 supplier agreements. The group’s Lightside committee praised Bostik’s commitment to ensuring consistent supplies to members and building relationships within the buying group, despite the challenging conditions caused by the pandemic and global shortages of raw materials.
Bostik was celebrated for its efforts in communication to ensure members were provided with regular updates during the resolution of any issues: “Throughout the pandemic, they have tried their upmost to keep us in the loop with developments and updates on any product shortages plus offering alternatives, whether it be through the h&b portal or via the local representative.”
Commenting on the award, Shaun Lee, Bostik’s commercial manager – consumer and trade, said: “This is a brilliant achievement and the whole Bostik team should be proud of the work everyone has done. We won’t be resting on our laurels either – we are committed to becoming an even stronger supplier for the h&b Group over the next year. We’re looking forward to listening to and working with even more members, while continuing to grow these important relationships.”
