BSW Timber has landed two awards at the Jewson Supplier Conference: ‘Best Overall Supplier of the Year’ and ‘Best Sales Support of the Year.’
The awards were presented in front of 300 supplier partners and Jewson employees at the Hilton Metropole in Birmingham, and Neil Horton, sales director for national accounts, said: “We are honoured to receive these awards which we feel reflect the efforts of the entire BSW sales and operations teams as we’ve strived to support Jewson in their sales growth strategy. We worked collaboratively with the category team to react to the unprecedented demand throughout the pandemic to ensure branches received the support they needed.”
Jewson managing director Nadine Matthews said: “We were delighted to have awarded BSW Timber our Supplier of the Year for 2021 in our recent Supplier Awards. They went above and beyond to help our colleagues and customers. They provided excellent communication, with regular updates on product availability, and developed great relationships across our branch network to help keep product moving, including for increasing deliveries on Saturdays to help meet demand. Above all, BSW offered a customer-first attitude to find the right solutions for our customers. Thank you and congratulations.”
The company also picked up the Trader of the Year Award at the Wood Protection Association 2022 Awards and Conference.
“The WPA Trader award marks out companies who are specialists in wood preservation and in the production of treated wood products,” said WPA Director Gordon Ewbank. “In this case, BSW’s Big Book marketing programme, which includes essential and clear information on how to specify and use treated wood, pushes the customer service bar still higher in our sector. Well done to all concerned.”
It is the third year running that BSW Timber has collected a WPA award, having claimed the Treated Wood Campaign Award last year, and the Innovation Award for IRO Timber in 2020.
