Supplier of the year

Vynova has secured the top spot in Veka Group’s fourth annual Supplier of the Year awards, as well as coming first in the raw materials category.

The annual awards recognise outstanding supplier performance in four categories: raw materials, technical/in-house design, ancillary and consumables.

Veka Group’s purchasing manager Nicola Woods said: “Veka Group is the industry’s leading manufacturer of PVCU profile systems and has a reputation for quality and reliability, which could not be maintained without the support of our suppliers.

“Veka Group suppliers undergo continuous, stringent monitoring to ensure our standards are upheld. Key suppliers are provided with a monthly vendor rating report which outlines how we have judged their performance. They are graded on quantitative data such as number of non-conformances and on time in full deliveries, but also on qualitative data such as customer service, flexibility and timely responses to queries.

“This means we can closely monitor our supply chain, and continue to provide the best possible customer experience. Suppliers must meet or exceed our expectations each month in order to remain on our approved list. This data also enables us to recognise and celebrate the hard work of our top suppliers.”

Ian Brown, Vynova PVC sales manager for UK and Ireland, said: “As a leading European manufacturer of high-quality PVC resins, we are committed to making a positive impact on our customers’ business needs. Our continuous hard work to support Veka is testimony to this commitment and it is great to receive this award in recognition of that big team effort.”
