After another year of positive growth for UK builders’ merchants, BMN is once again starting its search for the industry’s best and brightest.
Are you one of those merchants who have enjoyed double digit growth this year? What is the secret of your success? Do you have the best staff; people who regularly go above and beyond for their customers?
The builders’ merchant sector is one of the most dynamic in the construction industry, and it’s time to tell everyone out there – suppliers, customers and fellow merchants alike – why yours is the best in the business.
Whether you’ve embarked on an ambitious new training scheme for your staff, or if a new website is adding a lucrative digital string to your bow, we want to hear all about your success.
Whatever your size and however many branches you have, every merchant has that one special USP that sets you apart. Maybe you’ve opened a new showroom, or have staff who have worked hard on a new tool or landscaping display – heavyside, lightside or timber, the Awards are open to everyone in the industry.
The categories this year are diverse and cover areas including marketing, customer service, best showroom and even best community initiative – giving every type of business the chance to enter, whatever your focus has been during the past 12 months.
Others highlight the hard work of individual branch managers and trainees across the UK, so if you have a colleague or member of staff who deserves special recognition, there is an award to enable you to do so.
Nominations for the Builders’ Merchants News Awards are open now, and can be submitted online at www.merchants-awards.co.uk.
Entries must be received no later than 1st September, 2017, but don’t delay! Start working on your nomination now, to ensure you can stand up and be counted among your peers at the prestigious BMN Awards ceremony.
This year, the awards will again take place at the Hilton Park Lane, London, on Friday 24 November, and we hope to see many of you in attendance to celebrate the industry’s highest accolades.
On our website you can find details of last year’s winners, along with full information on every category available this year, and the entry criteria with which our panel of independent Judges will choose the 2017 winners.
We can’t wait to read your entries – good luck to everyone from Builders’ Merchants News!
