I’m delighted to be launching the brand new Octabuild Builder’s Merchant Excellence Awards for 2019.
Partnership and consultation have always been a feature of Octabuild’s relationship with the trade and this ongoing engagement has resulted in the most significant developments to the awards programme in 35 years.
New Approach, Same Values
The award categories have been reviewed to better reflect the business that today’s builders merchants conduct and they also align with the core values of Octabuild.
What’s New for 2019
There are lots of new and improved features for this year’s awards, but we have preserved the all important visits –with an extended duration of up to 90 minutes conducted by a newly appointed panel of independent judges.
I encourage all merchants to enter any or all of the categories this year and benefit from the enhanced process.
Identifying and promoting excellence and best practice remains the primary focus of the awards and we hope you embrace the refreshed process this year which we believe reflects Octabuild moving forward with industry.
Entries close on 1st July
Best of luck!
