A BUILDING company in Yeovil has won a top award.

Bradfords Building Supplies won Builders' Merchant of the Year (21-50 branches) at the Builders' Merchants Awards 2020.

This is the second year in a row they have won this prestigious award.

Bradfords' We've Got Your Back campaign was also awarded Marketing Initiative of the Year, and Dan Miller in the Ross on Wye branch won Branch Manager of the Year.

David Young, CEO of Bradfords Building Supplies, said: “Thinking back to how challenging the last 12 months have been for the whole industry, these award wins are more poignant than ever and testament to the hard work and dedication to customer service from our teams across our network of 43 branches.

"We’re hopeful that it won’t be too long until we can all celebrate the incredible work carried out during our 250th anniversary year, together in person.”

The award ceremony took place virtually on May 14, and was presented by radio presenter Colin Murray.

The Builders’ Merchants Awards is now in its 19th year and run in partnership with the Builders Merchants Federation. The awards are independent and aim to showcase the best in the merchant industry, bringing together both merchants and suppliers to celebrate achievement across the sector.

The awards were judged by a panel of key industry experts and stakeholders, including representatives from the Builders Merchants Federation, National Buying Group, the Federation of Master Builders and BMA.
