FPS Distribution at 2017 Mica Awards

FPS celebrates success at the 2017 Mica Hardware Awards

Following its success last year, FPS is celebrating once again having been named the Promotional Supplier of the Year at the 2017 Mica Hardware Awards.

Thanks to the hard work of Richard Baron and his team, FPS has been recognised once more for the high quality service it provides in setting promotions on a monthly basis and promoting them through its members.

This year, Chris Quinn and Marie Bucknall attended the conference in Warwickshire. They were presented with the award by the CEO of Mica Hardware, Michael Ball, who added: “The Mica Promotional Supplier Award is given to a business that’s has worked with Mica and her members in the last 12 months, not just to promote products but to do so in an exciting way that drives retailer footfall.

“FPS products have appeared with increasing frequency and variety on consumer promotions in recent years, which has resulted in the business between our Co-operative group and FPS growing strongly year on year and like for like.

“I’d like to offer my congratulations to all the team at FPS and in particular to Richard and his team for this well-deserved 2017 award.”

FPS continually strives to deliver a high quality service to all our members and it is therefore incredibly rewarding to be recognised by one of our major customers. As always, this was very much a team effort, so congratulations to all!

In addition to the awards, the conference also involved ‘speed dating’-type meetings involving each member of the buying group. During these sessions, Chris and Marie were delighted to take orders on the day from the vast majority of members.

Mica is a buying group consisting of members that specialise in hardware. In supplying our members with products from our Maintenance & Accessories range, such as aerosols, tools and small car repair products, we service a number of hardware stores nationwide. We also contribute products to their special offer brochures.
