JG Speedfit once again crowned ‘Best Plumbing Brand’ at BMJ Industry Awards

June 05 2019

JG Speedfit, an RWC brand, has won the ‘Best Plumbing Brand’ title at the BMJ Industry Awards 2019 for the second year running.

The awards event is run by the Builders Merchants Journal (BMJ) Magazine in the UK, and celebrates the very best brands, merchants and people at the heart of the builders’ merchant sector. This year, JG Speedfit beat Hunter Plastics and Plumco to the ‘Best Plumbing Brand’ accolade, which was announced on 17th May 2019 at The Brewery, London.

The award is unique in that only industry professionals can nominate and vote for their favourite brands and merchants. This means JG Speedfit was selected by merchants and people who sell and use its products every day in the UK, instead of a single judging panel.

James Bell, EMEA Brand and Marketing Director said:

“The BMJ Industry Awards are a hotly contested event, with only the best brands, merchants and individuals making it through to the shortlists, let alone win it. To receive the award two years in a row for JG Speedfit is an incredible testament to the hard work, dedication and customer service offered by our people behind the brand, from our production staff to our sales, marketing and customer service teams.”
