The now traditional Kbsa Supplier Awards were announced at the 2015 Kbsa Networking Dinner which followed the AGM & National Meeting on 16 September 2015. 4 KBB Review Kitchen Conference, and again, KBSA members voted for those suppliers who they thought had excelled in their service to them in 2014.
Members voted Product Supplier of the Year to built in brand leader NEFF – which is the 4th time they have been voted best in class.
Training Provider of the Year was awarded to Miele, and the award for Best Display Support was awarded to Cosentino for their Silestone brand.
Kbsa Corporate Chair, Malcolm Scott, said ‘These awards are genuinely deserved, as they are voted for by Kbsa retailers, and are therefore based on the actual performance of these brands. It is always a great pleasure to reward those brands that do support the independent specialist directly, and this year’s winners should be proud of their recognition. While some may be surprised to see Neff being so well supported by our retail members when there are stock shortages, these shortages are at least in part because the new product offering has been so well received by consumers.’
These awards are based on the results of the Kbsa annual members’ survey in 2014, and reflect members’ opinions on those brands that have performed well during the year. This years awards are now the 6th and reflect Kbsa members wishes to acknowledge those suppliers who have performed best during the year.
