Norbord has been awarded the Timber and Sheet Materials Supplier of the Year award at the 2013 Jewson conference.

The award was presented to Norbord Europe’s managing director Karl Morris and sales director Maurice Fitzgibbon by Peter Hindle MBE, chief executive of Saint-Gobain Building Distribution UK & Ireland, along with Jewson’s procurement director Vince Fenson.

Mr Morris commented: “We are delighted to have won this award. Jewson works with several thousand suppliers and four received an award on the evening – this is a clear sign that the Norbord/Jewson partnership is thriving. The success is principally due to us developing a service offer that reduces their costs, ensures stock is available in all branches all the time, and removes the need for time-consuming and costly manual administration of orders.”
