Claygate Distribution Ltd becomes the first ever recipient of the Best Distributor award at the BMJ Industry Awards!

The very best from across the builders’ merchants sector gathered at The Brewery, London on Friday 18 May to find out who would be among the first to receive a coveted accolade at the inaugural BMJ Industry Awards.

Builders Merchants Journal editor-in-chief Fiona Russell-Horne opened the ceremony saying: “We launched the BMJ Industry Awards to laud, celebrate and applaud the achievements, dedication and sheer hard work that goes into making you the very best at what you do.”

Hosting the afternoon’s proceedings was journalist, TV and radio presenter Claudia Winkleman, who took the reins to reveal who the industry had chosen to be their rightful winners in the groundbreaking awards scheme – which was decided entirely by a secure online vote.

Claygate Distribution had plenty of reason to celebrate, becoming the first ever recipient of the Best Distributor award at the BMJ Industry Awards.

Whilst enjoying an afternoon of celebration and networking, guests also gave generously in a charity fundraiser, carried out on behalf of CRASH - the industry charity for the homeless - and MIND, the mental health charity. The full amount raised by the generous donations of the BMJ Industry Awards guests will be revealed shortly.

Claygate would like to thank everyone who voted for us and all of our staff for their hard work and dedication.
