Members of the Independent Floorcovering Distributors Association (IFDA) have once again selected F. Ball and Co. Ltd. as the winner of its ‘Flooring Accessory Supplier of the Year’ award. This is the fifth consecutive year that the leading manufacturer of flooring adhesives and smoothing underlayments has received this prestigious award.
Paul Carvall, Chairman of the IFDA, presented the Dick Johnston trophy to F. Ball Sales Director, David Hibbert, along with a cheque for £250.00, which was donated to the company’s choice of charity, the Donna Louise Trust - a children’s hospice in Stoke on Trent that F. Ball regularly supports.
Along with fellow candidates for the award, F. Ball was judged according to its performance in ten key business areas, including sales representation, marketing strategy, delivery service and technical support.
In recent years, F. Ball has invested heavily in the addition of a training centre and new 30,000ft2 manufacturing facility at the company’s headquarters in Staffordshire. Representing a total investment of £8 million, these developments have enabled F. Ball to maintain an excellent level of customer service and technical support, as well as expand its production capacity and continue to guarantee next day delivery of its products to distributors in the UK.
IFDA Chairman, Paul Carvall comments: “It was my pleasure to once again present the IFDA ‘Flooring Accessory Supplier of the Year’ award to F. Ball and Co. Ltd. The award reflects the close working partnership that is engendered between F. Ball and IFDA members, and represents a very real recognition of one of the flooring industry’s flagship companies.
