JW Filshill have been ranked first in an independent UK-wide industry survey which asks suppliers to rate wholesalers and symbol groups across several categories.
The Advantage Group Report ranges categories from business development to supply chain management as well as execution of promotional and marketing plans. Filshill came out on top in the wholesale channel programme for the eighth year running.
Managing director Simon Hannah said: “This is testament to the hard work of our teams’ commitment and our strategy over many years of working in partnership with our suppliers – collaborating with them, sharing information and making them part of our success story.
“We’ve always taken the view that having an open and honest dialogue with suppliers leads to opportunities and by sharing the insight/data we gather from our supply chain technology we are able to find solutions, predict key growth areas and work together on future plans, including new product development.”
The convenience/symbol group survey, which included over 300 online submissions from suppliers, was conducted between February and May, as was the wholesaler survey which had over 200 submissions from suppliers. All submissions were anonymous.
