MOFFAT WINS LACA 2007 OUTSTANDING SUPPLIER OF THE YEAR AWARD
E&R Moffat has been named Outstanding Supplier of the Year for 2007 by LACA, the Local Authority Catering Association.
The award, announced on 12th July at
the Association's 2007 conference in Birmingham, is an honour presented
annually to a supplier cons
Commenting on the award, the judges said that Moffat "is known to many Authorities for the quality of its products and for its customer service" and spoke about "finding the company completely in tune with customer needs".
Accepting the award from LACA's Chairman at the conference, Moffat's Sales Director John Wannan said: "We are delighted and honoured to get this recognition. But it's not happened just from our side; we've had huge help from a number of excellent local authorities this year who are really making the effort for their staff and children.
John Wannan particularly thanked the local authorities who supported Moffat when the nominations were announced, including several who nominated the company privately. The award featured a litany of support from LACA members, including the following citations:
"The customer service offered to us has been second to none with their helpful advice and support. As a catering equipment supplier they have always consulted with us and been willing to customise their products according to our service needs and requirements."
"In the last year or two I seen this company make huge advances. They've given us excellent advice, they've been pro-active and they've especially been innovative."
"They've been pro-active and flexible and helped us to develop and deliver some remarkable projects."
John Wannan explained that Moffat had been especially keen to focus on local authority catering in the last year. "More than ever in the last year, we've been listening to LACA members. Perhaps that's why they've been so positive. We've made a point of inviting clients to the factory and discussing products with them during design and construction. We feel this extra openness gives them greater input into final product design. Ultimately, our local authority catering contracts have been a huge help to driving our business forward."
