Vynova has secured the ‘top spot’ in VEKA Group’s fourth annual Supplier of the Year awards.

As a leading European manufacturer of high-quality PVC resins, Vynova came first in the ‘Raw Materials’ category, as well as being named overall winner.

VEKA Group uses only the highest quality raw materials and components for its industry-leading PVC-U profile systems, and the company is proud to celebrate the suppliers that go above and beyond in both product and service.

With these annual awards, VEKA Group recognises outstanding supplier performance in four categories: Raw Materials, Technical / In House Design, Ancillary and Consumables.

While Vynova won for Raw Materials and came out top overall, EWS (Manufacturing) Ltd was named in the Technical/In House Design and Chick Plastics in the Ancillary categories respectively, and POLI-FILM was the winner for Consumables.

VEKA Group’s Purchasing Manager Nicola Woods said: “VEKA Group is the industry’s leading manufacturer of PVC-U profile systems and has a reputation for quality and reliability, which could not be maintained without the support of our suppliers.

“The selection process to become a VEKA Group supplier is rigorous, and then these carefully chosen partners undergo continuous, stringent monitoring to ensure our standards are upheld.

“Key suppliers are provided with a monthly ‘vendor rating report’ which outlines how we have judged their performance. They are graded on quantitative data such as number of non-conformances and ‘on time in full’ deliveries, but also on qualitative data such as customer service, flexibility and timely responses to queries.

“This means we can closely monitor our supply chain, and continue to provide the best possible customer experience. Suppliers must meet or exceed our expectations each month in order to remain on our approved list.

“This data also enables us to recognise and celebrate the hard work of our top suppliers.

“I’d like to congratulate the team at Vynova. They work incredibly hard, and deserve to be very proud of this achievement. We look forward to working with Vynova for many more years to come.”

Ian Brown, Vynova PVC Sales Manager for UK & Ireland, commented: “We are delighted that Vynova has won VEKA Group’s prestigious Supplier of The Year Award. As a leading European manufacturer of high-quality PVC resins, we are committed to making a positive impact on our customers’ business needs. Our continuous hard work to support VEKA is testimony to this commitment and it is great to receive this award in recognition of that big team effort.

“Working with VEKA, it is clear that they are a very professional and well-organised business. Their manufacturing plant and quality processes are one of the best in class for their industry. It is a pleasure to work so closely as a major raw material supplier with such a collaborative and forward-looking company. We hope for the following years we can go from strength to strength together.”
