TMD Friction scoops Autoparts supplier of the year award
Autoparts UK has named TMD Friction as its supplier of the year 2013. The news was announced at Autoparts’ Burns Night celebrations, which also included fellow customers and suppliers in an event comprising Haggis ‘n’ Neeps, Robbie Burns poems and some professional boxing at the St. Andrews Boxing Club. Branch managers and staff from Autoparts’ 13-strong branch network were asked to vote for their supplier of the year against a criteria of parts availability, technical assistance, sales support and customer service.
Richard Gleghorn, TMD Friction UK sales manager, car products, received the commemorative trophy and bottle of malt whisky. He said: “This is a fantastic achievement for TMD Friction and is in recognition of the hard work the entire team puts into supporting our growth with Autoparts UK.”
Craig McCracken, Autoparts Group factor manager, said: “We’re unlike other motor factors in that we don’t change suppliers for some short term gain, but instead work as closely as possible in ensuring our customers receive the full benefits from being an Autoparts customer. We can only do this with the support from our suppliers and so congratulations to TMD Friction for being crowned top supplier.”
