Stapleton’s ‘Wholesaler of the year’ crown an ‘extra special achievement’
Winning the National Tyre Distributors Association Wholesaler of the year award in 2015 was “an extra special achievement”, according to leading tyre wholesaler Stapleton’s. This is said to have especially been the case as it was the first year in the awards history that all the awards were judged by a panel of independent adjudicators from the wider tyre and automoteive industry community.
Reflecting on this extraordinary achievement Stapleton’s managing director Yutaka Kimbara said: “To be recognised as the number one in the industry fills me with immense pride. 2015, like many of the recent years, has been an incredibly tough marketplace to compete in. I would like to personally thank our customers, suppliers and congratulate all members of Stapleton’s staff for their continuous commitment and hard work. Without you, accolades like this are near non–achievable. We have now set the bar and must find innovative ways to ensure we do not let these standards drift. I want us to continue to improve and develop from here and be in the running for the 2016 crown. Once again thank you to everyone, a truly fantastic achievement”.
Collecting the award on behalf of Stapleton’s was director of Wholesale, Nigel O’Hara, who commented: “I think the award is recognition of our continued efforts and investment to make us the strongest wholesaler of tyres in the UK today. Offering access to 1.5 million tyres per day across our network, a 400-strong van fleet delivering product with minimum twice daily delivery, a wide range of product with strong brand programmes while delivering a comprehensive add-on service. All of this to ensure we not just meet and but exceed our customers needs.”
