Boiler manufacturer Worcester Bosch picked up the Supplier of the Year, whilst Wavin were crowned winners of Best Product Availability, Vaillant received the Contribution to the Knowledge award and Bristan were announced as winners of the Rapid Speed of Response award.

Awards were also presented to nine of its staff members recognising long service, outstanding sales and overall dedication to the business.

Celebrating 40 years with Graham, both Bob Cheyne from the Bellshill branch and Mary Cappiello from Glasgow branch were presented with long service awards, recognising the commitment made to the business over the years.

Similarly, a number of regional awards were also given out – Chris Quinn from the Bury branch was presented with the Northern Regional Award, Duncan Clews from the Redditch branch won the Midlands Regional Award and Kelvin Rudd won the Southern Regional Award for the Horsham branch.

Graham was also keen to recognise the hard work of the sales team too with Brian Bathgate, James Derry, Toby Edwards and Robert Thompson all receiving awards.

Following Graham’s extensive fundraising efforts over the course of the year, Macmillan Cancer Support – Graham’s charity partner, was presented with a cheque for £35,000, with a further £3,000 raised on the night too.

Ian Kenny, marketing director at Graham said: “The annual conference was a huge success. Not only does it allow us to keep our wide staff network updated, but it is the ideal platform in which to reward those staff and indeed suppliers who have excelled over the course of the past 12 months.”
