In recognition for outstanding levels of service, Ariston has been named ‘Supplier of the Year’ at the annual YPS Plumbing Supplies Awards.

Ariston has been supplying plumbing products to YPS Plumbing, the plumbing and heating division of Bradfords Building Supplies, for a year.

All of YPS’ senior and branch managers voted in the awards, with Ariston beating off the competition to win the prestigious trophy, which was presented to Area Sales Manager Peter Lee (pictured left) by Mark Eburne, CEO of Bradfords Group (pictured right).

Ariston supports YPS Plumbing Supplies with events including merchant open days, breakfast mornings and networking events, plus marketing support, bespoke product literature and joint customer visits.

Ariston’s display and training vehicle frequently visits YPS Plumbing Supplies stores, offering product demonstrations and training sessions.

Lee said: “We are delighted to have won an award recognising our levels of service, especially at such an early stage of our tenure with YPS Plumbing Supplies.

“They are a fantastic company to work with. I have already established some amazing relationships with their staff and customers, who have all been impressed with the quality of our product portfolio and levels of technical support.

“I am looking forward to working with the YPS team throughout 2019 to further strengthen their position in the heating and hot water sector.”

Victoria Gutierrez, Marketing Manager at Ariston, added: “To win this award after only 12 months as a supplier is testament to the hard work and effort that we – and Peter in particular – have put in since we began working with YPS.

“We have been extremely pleased with the feedback received from the company and its customers so far. We hope this award will be the first of many future successes, and that our partnership with YPS Plumbing Supplies will continue to go from strength to strength.”
