FPS were delighted to pick up the Mica Promotional Supplier of the Year award for the second year running at the Mica Hardware Awards 2018. In 2016 we won the ‘Mica Supplier of the Year’ award, making this the third consecutive time FPS have triumphed at the Mica Hardware Awards.
Sam Haley and Chris Quinn from our CCA team represented FPS at the Mica Annual Conference; which took place over 22nd-23rd of September in Belfast this year. They were both presented with the award by Colin Eathorne of Eathornes Mica Hardware in Larkhall.
Michael Ball, CEO of Mica Hardware said: “This award is given to the Mica supplier who has given the best support and partnership in creating excellent consumer promotions over the last 12 months. This is the second year running FPS have picked up the award, so double congratulations are in order to Chris, Sam, Richard and the team for their win, which is I’m sure based on another year of hard graft.”
We were pleased to be recognised by Mica for the high-quality service we offer our customers and would like to thank the consistent hard work of Richard Baron and his team, as they have all made a huge contribution to our success. Chris Quinn says: “It was a privilege to attend the event and collect the award on behalf of everyone at FPS, and it is a testament to the hard work and dedication everyone has put in over the year.”
The Mica Hardware Awards ceremonies are held every year, with the aim of celebrating the achievements of their suppliers and the independent retailers in their co-operative across key areas of their business. Mica Hardware was set up in 1995 and is the only co-operative group of DIY/Hardware shops in the UK. Their ethos is to allow their stores to retain their independence, whilst gaining all of the buying power and community spirit that being part of a larger business can bring.
