Knauf Insulation has achieved industry recognition for its support of builders’ merchants, winning the title of Best Heavyside Brand at the 2019 BMJ Industry Awards.
The Awards, which are now in their second year, seek to recognise brands, builders’ merchants and individuals that are making a difference to the sector – as chosen by the professionals working within it.
The title of Best Heavyside Brand is awarded to the manufacturer that builders’ merchants believe has most boosted their business. Knauf Insulation, which is the UK’s only manufacturer of both Glass and Rock Mineral Wool, has invested heavily in its strategic merchant partnerships. It offers builders’ merchants a range of insulation products suitable for all applications, backed up by extensive technical support and in-house training for builders’ merchant staff and their customers.
Speaking about the award, Steve Duke, Commercial Director of Knauf Insulation said: “We are committed to delivering exceptional service and support to our builders’ merchant partners, backed up by a range of high performance, non-combustible insulation products that will add value to their businesses. We are therefore honoured to have been voted Best Heavyside Brand at the 2019 BMJ Industry Awards, especially as each category winner is chosen by the industry itself.
“This award is a testament to the hard work and commitment of all our staff and demonstrates that we are continually striving to deliver the highest levels of support for our partners. We look forward to building on our successful merchant partnerships for many years to come.”
The Award was presented to John Gaunt, Commercial Manager at Knauf Insulation by news anchor Natasha Kaplinsky at The Brewery, London. John himself is no stranger to the BMJ Industry Award team having picked up the title of Best Sales Representative at the inaugural award ceremony in 2018 as well as being shortlisted for the 2019 award.
Knauf Insulation also sponsored the Multiple Merchant of the Year category, which was awarded to MKM Building Supplies.
2019 looks set to be another successful year for Knauf Insulation. The company has also been shortlisted for the Green/Sustainability Award at the National Building Awards and Manufacturer of the Year at the Business Green Leaders Awards.
