Strongest man launches RGB's new awards scheme

Hall, who weighs in at 26 stone, with a 60 inch chest, 33 inch thighs and a 50 inch waist, will be meeting and greeting visitors and signing autographs at the RGB stand on the 24th and 25th April at Exeter’s Westpoint Arena between 10am and 4pm.

RGB’s Well Built Stamp of Excellence Awards aims to recognise the excellent work that is done by genuinely skilled and honest tradespeople. Customers will be able to pick up a Well Built Stamp of Excellence form from the stand at Toolfair or any RGB branch and hand it to their clients to fill in once a job has been completed. The clients will be asked to rate the tradesperson on things such as the quality of work, the quality of the products used and timescale.

The form will then be displayed in a RGB Book of Excellence in RGB branches showing what great work their customers do. One customer each month will be chosen to receive a Well Built Stamp of Excellence certificate for receiving a particularly amazing testimonial.

Kevin Fenlon, chief executive of RGB Building Supplies, said: “As a company that was founded over 150 years ago, we are fully aware of the importance of doing things well, and this is something that we know our customers also believe in. There are some fantastic tradesmen and women across Devon, Cornwall and Somerset and our Well Built Stamp of Excellence Awards will celebrate them. We are delighted that Eddy Hall will be joining us at Toolfair to help launch the awards. He’s definitely someone you can’t fail to miss and we are certain that a number of people will want to meet him.

“As an added bonus, the RGB Book of Excellence will act as a free advertising tool for our customers, as we would like to encourage members of the communities local to our branches who are looking for a builder, plumber or decorator to look at the testimonials that have been received to help them make a selection.”

Tradesmen and women can find out more information from any RGB branch, or speak to representatives on stand number L6 at Toolfair, where RGB will also be joined by Paslode Nail Guns, Scruffs Clothing, Blackrook Clothing & Rodo Products and Spax Screws.
