LBS Builders Merchants came out on top at the 2015 Builders Merchants Awards For Excellence, held at the Lancaster Hotel, London on the 20th November. The awards are attended by leading merchants and suppliers, from across the UK, to recognise the achievement of excellence within the industry.
Awards are made in 12 different categories after nominations are considered by a panel of judges from within the industry. LBS was awarded ‘Best Training Initiative’ for its innovative ‘Warehouse to Wheel’ in house driver training scheme, where LBS covers the cost of HGV training to develop new drivers for its delivery fleet.
In addition to these categories, additional awards were made for the best overall Builders Merchant. LBS were awarded the ultimate accolade within its industry winning the coveted ‘Best Independent Merchant, 6+ Branches’ for a third time, having previously won it in 2010 and 2011 to the accolade of their peers. LBS has built an enviable reputation as one of the UK’s most successful Builders Merchants having received 9 national awards since 2010.
LBS continues to invest in new branches and its employees to deliver outstanding customer service to local tradesmen and contractors across South and West Wales. It is great to receive recognition from peers within the industry for all the hard work of the 265 LBS employees and fly the flag for Wales at national awards.
