Knauf Insulation is delighted to announce that for the fourth year running it has been presented with the Supplier of the Year award in the roofing and insulation category, at the National Buying Group (NBG) awards. Alongside this, its Commercial Manager, John Gaunt, was also named Account Manager of the Year for the second consecutive year.

Both awards were presented by comedian Mark Watson, Managing Director of NBG, Nick Oates and Managing Director of Building and Plumbing Supplies, John Dibble.

John Gaunt commented: “Winning Supplier of the Year once was great, but to have now won it for four consecutive years is fantastic. We believe in doing things differently, by investing heavily in training and engaging with our customers; it’s also about understanding the opportunities to up and cross-sell.

“A number of people within both NBG and Knauf Insulation have put in a great deal of hard work over the last year, and the award is in recognition of the strong partnership that exists between both businesses. We deliver on promises and ensure products aren’t just sold into branches, but we work alongside NBG Partners to achieve the ‘sell-out’.

“It is a humbling experience to win Account Manager of the Year award for the second time. To watch all of our accounts grow is special and being a part of that is what makes me enjoy what I do. I’m grateful to NBG and its partners, who are so easy to work with. We have a vision and ethos that is closely aligned and they are willing to be guided to help them grow further – which is refreshing.”
