HOPPE, the manufacturer synonymous with innovation, quality and performance in hardware for the architectural and window and door sectors, is delighted that one of its customers has been awarded Best Supplier of the Year by construction and regeneration giant, Willmott Dixon.
Birmingham based architectural ironmonger Branch BMN Ltd scooped the award after being put forward by the Willmott Dixon Barnet office. All Willmott Dixon suppliers were in the running, so it was no mean feat for Branch BMN, who came out on top of the 8,000-strong competition.
Entrants were judged by every building site on all aspects of their service, from delivery to performance, and so Branch BMN was pleased to have chosen HOPPE Ltd as its own supplier of a wide selection of hinges, door closers, locks and more for their work with Willmott Dixon.
Branch BMN Owner Ray Branch explains: “We were thrilled to have been chosen last month as Best Supplier of the Year by Willmott Dixon’s Barnet Office, particularly when you take into account the number of entrants. We strive to achieve great working relationships with our suppliers and customers alike and we certainly have that with HOPPE in the same way we do with Willmott Dixon.
“We first chose to work with HOPPE around 20 years ago now and are still very happy with the products they supply for our work with companies such as Willmott Dixon. We also feel supported by them, as we are able to speak to our Regional Sales Manager Lisa on the phone whenever we need to – sometimes up to three times a week! “
Andy Matthews, National Sales & Marketing Manager for the Architectural Division at HOPPE is similarly on hand if he is ever needed, according to Ray: “We always feel like we can speak to Andy, although we usually only do so only in the rare event that something hasn’t gone quite according to plan, and he always provides a quick and satisfactory resolution. We also speak to Andy if we want to ask a favour,” jokes Ray.
Andy adds: “It was fantastic to hear that Branch BMN achieved the Best Supplier of the Year Award for its work with Willmott Dixon. It’s a mark of the effort they put in and the attention they pay to detail that they came out on top of the 8,000 entrants put forward. Having been a supplier to them for such a long period of time, we have built up a great relationship, and so we are ideally placed to help with any project they undertake, something we always aim to do to the highest standards, as with all of our customers.”
