The team at Hardie Polymers celebrates the award win
Glasgow-based plastics raw materials distributor, Hardie Polymers, has been recognised with the award for ‘Best Independent Polymer Supplier 2015’ by International Publishing Group, Corporate Vision.
This is the second time the company has won an accolade for its distribution and supply credentials, having been awarded a Plastics Industry Award (PIA) in 2014.
Managing Director, Fergus Hardie, said the company was “delighted” with the win. “This recognises our ongoing and continued success in meeting the needs of our fast growing customer base,” he explained.
Hardies specialises in sourcing and distributing engineering and high performance polymers. It puts its success down to being a small and friendly distributor with a focus on customer service, as well as being totally independent.
“Because we are independent and not tied to certain polymer producers, we can offer grades from any producer,” Hardie continued.
“This saves our customer from having to deal with multiple suppliers. We also work on tighter margins than our larger competitors so our customers can access better pricing for these so called ‘specified’ grades.”
Over the past few years, the company says it has worked hard to locate and develop new suppliers across Europe in order to enable us to increase the range of materials that it offers, as well as offer competitively priced products.
“We now have over 300 polymer suppliers supporting us giving us a real edge over our competition,” said Hardie. By taking advantage of the company’s international supply base, he added, meant customers benefit from faster delivery, allowing them to "compete more effectively and to improve profitability."
