For the prestigious Overall Supplier of the Year Award, Mark Esling, CCO STARK Building Materials UK praised SAM’s excellence in their partnership, noting: “SAM Mouldings has truly gone above and beyond in every aspect of their partnership with us.

“It’s not just about providing exceptional products — it’s about embodying our values, exceeding our expectations, and consistently delivering excellence in every interaction. They delivered excellent service, at all levels of the organisation, with a collaborative approach that demonstrates their commitment to true partnership.”

The Supply Chain Award was awarded to SAM for its proactive and innovative approach to enhancing service delivery, with Mark stating: “SAM Mouldings consistently goes above and beyond to improve the service we provide to our customer base. They demonstrated an unwavering commitment to partnership and collaboration, improving load flexibility, delivery options and simplified pricing, amongst others.
