We’re delighted to announce our shortlisting in this year’s Builders’ Merchants News Awards – once again, it’s great for Buildbase to be among the contenders!
This year, we’re in the running for National Builders’ Merchant of the Year and Timber Centre of the Year for our Buildbase Grangemouth branch. We’ll now have to wait until Friday 24 November to hear whether we’re winners. The glittering awards dinner held at the London Hilton Hotel, Park Lane.
Achieving our finalist status for National Builders’ Merchant of the Year is, in part, because of the major investment we have made to improving our customer experience online, but also our commitment to our local ethos as we strive to be convenient to tradespeople wherever they are in the UK.
Our commitment to investing in communities is no better demonstrated than in our sponsorship of England’s premier non-league football competitions, The Buildbase FA Trophy and The Buildbase FA Vase. As part of this we are helping to improve local facilities through our Club Renovation Programme, which has just launched for a second year and is currently taking entries. This product bursary will provide £50,000 each in building, electrical products and hire equipment to two clubs by the end of the 2017-18 season.
The story behind our Buildbase Grangemouth branch is about its successful transformation into a support hub for sourcing and supplying timber materials to our 16 branches in Scotland. This is benefiting not just the branches it serves but also our customers in Scotland with improved services and product range.
Recognition in these prestigious awards is also a reason to say thank you to our customers nationwide – for helping us to improve constantly what we do and for adding to our success.
