HANSON UK have been named supplier of the year 2009 by Stent Foundations – now part of Balfour Beatty Ground Engineering (BBGE).
Employees from across the business were asked to nominate the supplier who had given the best service and performance over the previous 12 months and this year Hanson received the honour.
The award is in its 18th year but this is only the second time a concrete supplier has won the award and the first time Hanson have received it.
In 2007 BBGE rationalized their supply chain and chose Hanson as one of their preferred concrete suppliers. Since then the companies have been working closely together to create a strong partnership.
BBGE supply chain manager Mukta Hashmi said: ‘The competition for this award was very impressive and Hanson won for their effort in embracing our ethos while adding considerable value.
‘Hanson are competitive with their pricing and are always willing to go that step further to meet tight delivery schedules, which ultimately benefits our clients.’
Hanson’s national commercial manager, James Moorhouse, said: ‘We have an excellent working relationship with BBGE and hold regular training days and business reviews to continually build on this.
‘We are delighted to receive its supplier of the year award in recognition of our efforts.’
