Ruralco Awards celebrate top suppliers
The quality and dedication of businesses supplying the farming sector was on display at the third annual Ruralco Supplier Awards. Ruralco, a joint venture between ATS and Ravensdown Fertiliser partners with more than 300 local suppliers to offer preferential discounts for Ruralco’s members.
Canvas and upholstery manufacturer Peter May Ltd took out Ruralco’s Supreme supplier award. The company received the top accolade for providing a quality product, member discounts and special offers, enabling them to demonstrate growth in a very competitive market.
“Peter May presents as polished and professional,” said Ruralco Group CEO Neal Shaw. “They are skilled and organised operators who take pride in all they do, and it shows in the finished product and across the business as a whole.
“They’ve experienced excellent growth in a competitive market over the last financial year and will continue to go from strength to strength. Peter May values and promotes the exclusive supplier relationship with Ruralco, and personally are always a pleasure to deal with.”
The Ruralco Awards recognise suppliers across five different categories – Supreme Supplier Award, Emerging Business, Excellence in Marketing, Members Choice Award and Business Growth and Development. Another 17 suppliers received awards for having the highest percentage growth relative to turnover within their industry.
Shaw says suppliers see the value of being in partnership with Ruralco because the company directly targets the farm while supporting the local community. “Ruralco provides proven direct marketing channels, market insight, education, secure and timely payment and unparalleled support.”
