The 2018 Tomago Aluminium Supplier Awards

A solid supply chain is the undercurrent of success for any business. At Tomago, we recognise the vital role our suppliers play in keeping our business thriving and each year in early November we pay tribute to our partners at the Tomago Aluminium Supplier Awards.

Now in their 13th year, the awards recognise our providers that go over and above to not only support operations, but help Tomago thrive.

Collaboration was the key to a successful supplier relationship, Gordon Wilson (Procurement Manager) said.

“In the case of all the winners that we recognised at this year’s awards ceremony, our providers often feel like an extension of the team,” Gordon said. “Working together with the common goal of making sure Tomago Aluminium thrives in the face of changing industry trends and periods of real change within the business.”

The award recognised as the one to win - the Environment, Health and Safety Award - this year went to certification, testing and inspection company Bureau Veritas, which is based at Cardiff.

Another local company and long-time supplier, Focus on Safety, was also recognised for outstanding training services.

MC Duties and music on the night was once again provided by Tomago’s own Tony Camps with a performance channelling David Bowie.  The special guest on the night was Vince Sorrenti who had the audience in stitches, plus other musical acts that contributed to the celebratory atmosphere.
