UK Greetings (UKG) has been awarded an inaugural John Lewis & Partners Supplier of the Year award.
The Dewsbury-based greeting card and giftwrapping business is one of 2,500 suppliers to the department store group John Lewis & Partners. It was among 20 companies shortlisted for the Small Supplier of the Year Award and was announced the winner at an awards event, organised by the retail group which took place last Thursday (January 30) at the MGallery Woughton House hotel, in Milton Keynes.
The purpose of the event was to recognise working partnerships and ongoing collaboration. UKG won the coveted trophy due to achieving 100% compliance.
Commenting on the award, Jonathan Glover, UKG’s business unit director of 3D and Special Editions said: “We were thrilled to be recognised for the outstanding success of our 3D product within their retail stores. This award acknowledges our creative talent, the huge improvement in compliance and the dedication and commitment from across the wider UKG team. Huge thanks to everyone involved in this account we should all be very proud!”
