Wienerberger has kick started the New Year by winning the prestigious Supplier of the Year for 2017 award from UK building merchant, Travis Perkins.
Determined by a variety of factors, including sales growth, successful new customer ranging, a strong charity partnership and more, the manufacturer was shortlisted from over a thousand other suppliers to just 32 top performing companies, before receiving the most votes from the Travis Perkins senior management teams.

This award highlights Wienerberger’s ongoing commitment and dedication across all areas of the business, showcasing the effectiveness of team members throughout the company and the unity in which they operate.
Paul Hodgkinson, National Accounts Director at the manufacturer, said: “Receiving this award is a fantastic recognition for everyone at Wienerberger.
