2017 Think Water Preferred Supplier of the Year

August 2017

At Think Water we celebrate excellence. Excellence in product, service, and price. Our Preferred Suppliers are part of our family and we promote and encourage growth and innovation in their business just as much as we do within our own network.

Each year Think Water Members are asked to rate the Preferred Suppliers for their country on their performance which provides valuable feedback for them and allows us to build stronger and more profitable relationships.

Preferred Suppliers in Australia and New Zealand are evaluated on a number of criteria including price, promotion, product, distribution, and people. After averaging the scores, the highest-ranking supplier from each country receives the award.

This year Philmac was recognised by Australian Think Water Members as the winner of the 2017 Australian Preferred Supplier of the Year. The award was presented to National Sales Manager John Pivac by Tony France at the annual award night during the conference. Philmac has supported Think Water since the beginning and continues to provide high-quality service to our Members today.

Jason Keen accepted the 2017 New Zealand Preferred Supplier of the Year award on behalf of Grundfos NZ, another early supporter of the Think Water group. It is a pleasure to reward these outstanding businesses for their exceptional service and support of Think Water Members over the past 10 years.

The inaugural Outstanding Preferred Suppliers Sales Staff awards, as voted by Think Water Members were also presented at the Awards Dinner. This is a great opportunity for Think Water stores to show their appreciation to the truly exceptional sales professionals of our industry and thank them for their hard work.

Think Water congratulates our 2017 Preferred Suppliers of the Year and Sales Professionals of the Year, and thanks to them for their continued high level of service and support to Think Water Members.
