2012 Supplier of the Year

Philmac – Success through industry commitment

Philmac, a global leader in the design and manufacture of specialist fittings and valves, has once again taken out the prestigious and much anticipated award – Irrigear 2012 Supplier of the Year.

Each year, all Irrigear Stores participate in an appraisal process that scores suppliers based on a range of criteria. The results are used to rank the suppliers performance.

"This is fantastic recognition from our customers with whom we share a very long-lasting business relationship," said Jason Mitchell, Philmac's General Manager, Group Marketing. "It's a great honour and humbling for us to be recognised by Irrigear Stores and we remain absolutely committed to further improving our performance even further in the future."  Philmac is well known for its range of quality Australian-made fittings. Since its establishment in South Australia in 1929, the company has built an enviable reputation in several industry sectors through continuous improvement in quality, product design, innovation, manufacturing and customer service. Across Australia, business owners and managers rely on Irrigear Stores to provide effective solutions in critical areas of water and industrial fluid management. The longstanding relationship between Irrigear and Philmac has been important for both parties.

Irrigear General Manager Simon Treptow said “It's a real win for an Irrigear Supplier – it's purely based on how our Members see the supplier performing. Irrigear Store owners rank suppliers across a range of criteria including field representation effectiveness; supply chain efficiency; product quality; accounts receivable efficiency; value for money; innovation and supplier stability. To be named Irrigear Supplier of the Year is an acknowledgement of Philmac's overall standard of quality – it really sorts out the best from the average."
