Storax and Troax scooped the top honours at the SEMA Distributor Group (SDG) Supplier of the Year awards 2015. Storax retained the premier accolade, with Troax chosen as runner up.
Congratulating the winners, SDG chairman Jonathan Bennett said: “I’d like to thank Storax, Troax and all of our suppliers for their tremendous support. We are really dependent on our suppliers delivering excellence of both product and service.
“2015 has seen our SDG group develop its presence in the market place and the group has played an active part of SEMA’s “Three Steps to Safety” campaign.
“Following 2014’s rigorous audit of each of our distributor members by independent QA assessors, QCS International, we’ve noticed a growing confidence in end users in choosing SEMA Distributor Companies and there’s been an increase in our membership.
“Only SDG members can show customers a current Audit Certificate as proof that the correct health and safety standards are in place, they use only trained labour, storage is correctly designed and the firm carries appropriate insurance.”
The awards were made at SEMA’s inaugural Combined General Meeting on 17th September at the Best Western Manor Hotel, Meriden, Coventry. Chaired by SEMA President Matt Grierson, the meeting brought together all SEMA member groups to learn and share best practice. HSE inspector Tony Mitchell addressed the 60-strong audience on the new CDM Regulations 2015, there were updates from SEMA’s technical committee by its chairman Steve Cowen, committee member Alan Worrell and SEMA approved inspector Mike Pace. Dr. Carolyn Rowe of Aston University concluded the meeting with an overview “Is the EU Good for Britain?”
