Below is a portion of the press release issued by Craig Webb, the editor or ProSales Magazine:
Washington, D.C. – November 16, 2011 – PROSALES magazine announced today that three construction supply dealers won grand prizes in its 2011 PROSALES Excellence Awards – the most prestigious awards program in the construction supply industry –
The PROSALES Excellence Awards honor outstanding achievements in construction supply in showroom design, facility design, technology, marketing and customer service, advertising, and websites. The awards program celebrates business leaders whose creativity and ingenuity have not only improved and reinvigorated their own companies, but also set new benchmarks for service in the entire industry.
Dealers and distributors competed in six different categories: Best Advertisement, Best Marketing Campaign, Best Website, Best Showroom, Best Facility Design, and Best Use of Technology. A panel of four independent judges then decided which entries, regardless of the category, achieved excellence and which other entries had shown enough to be worthy of merit.
“What’s particularly impressive about the 2011 PROSALES Excellence Award winners is how they found ways to attract new business and improve their operations despite having to struggle through the worst housing market in decades,” said Craig Webb, editor, PROSALES magazine. “Raymond Building Supply reorganized the way it handles paperwork, and in the process saved tens of thousands of dollars while uncovering potential new projects on which to bid…. And Sanford & Hawley’s complete technology overhaul has resulted in better service, happier customers, less waste, and fewer operational mistakes.”
Stories about each winning entry are featured in the just-released November/December edition of PROSALES.
