Victoria receives "Best Supplier of the Year" Award
Victoria Carpets has once again been recognised for high quality products and
level of service by receiving another prestigious award, Flooring Industry Award
2003 for "Best Supplier of the Year".
This recognition follows the awards to Victoria for Best Service and Best
Product 2002 which it received in July 2003.
The "Best Supplier of the Year" award was presented to John Duncan, Joint
Managing Director and Shaun Lewis, National Sales & Marketing Director, Victoria
Carpets, following a poll conducted by the flooring industry's leading trade
publication, Carpet Flooring Retail ("CFR").
The poll of CFR's 6,000 readership which represents a large cross section of the
industry from manufacturers to wholesalers and retailers, looked at all facets
of manufacture, supply, products, quality and service.
John Duncan, said on receiving the award:
"We are delighted to be recognised by the readership poll. Victoria has
significantly invested in both its plant and products to ensure that it produces
high quality carpets that meet customers' demand and criteria - all of which is
backed up by prompt delivery and high levels of service - key to any businesses
This month at the Harrogate Fair, Victoria received the award for the design and
style of its 50 square metres exhibition stand which reflected a showroom setting
and included Victoria's newly designed free-standing tower stand units, built
in-house; these new units are available to retailers to merchandise products and
display it to its maximum effect within their retail stores.
Ensuring that Victoria's products are delivered to customers efficiently and
promptly, the Company has also launched its new high-tech liveried distribution
fleet which services the majority of Victoria's customers and is capable of
delivering all sizes and width of carpet including Victoria's new five metre
wide products that are now being manufactured at its Kidderminster plant and
which have been very well received by the trade.
