Schaeffler UK receives 2013 Supplier of the Year Award from IADA

Schaeffler (UK) Ltd has received the 2013 "˜Supplier of the Year Award' from IADA, the Independent Authorised Distributor Alliance. The annual award is voted for by IADA members and is based on customer service, reliability, quality and range of products, delivery and overall business performance.

Richard Hall, President Industrial for the UK & Ireland and Deputy Managing Director at Schaeffler UK, received the award on behalf of his team. He comments: "To receive the Best Supplier award from IADA for the second consecutive year is a tremendous achievement. The award recognises the commitment and enthusiasm of all our staff in supporting the successful growth of the IADA members. We will continue to work hard and build on our excellent relationship with IADA."

James Gibson, IADA Marketing Director, who presented the award to Richard Hall states: "All the staff at Schaeffler UK thoroughly deserve this award, as they have once again shown extremely high levels of commitment to IADA and its members by providing the very best levels of service and support in all areas."

IADA was formed in 1998 by a select group of independent distributors, with the aim of becoming a nationally networked supplier of MRO supply systems. The organisation looks for ways to improve the level of service and coverage for their customers and today has 20 members and operates across 50 branches throughout the UK.

Key to the success of IADA is providing locally available stocks and expert technical support. In addition, IADA is working hard to gain new national supply contracts for MRO products and has appointed a dedicated team working on behalf of the members.
