2015 Supplier of the Year

Philmac Australia takes out this year's major award

Philmac Australia, 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 2015 Supplier of the Year.

Philmac were selected based on the results of an annual appraisal process that scores suppliers based on a range of criteria. The award was announced at the Irrigear National Conference Gala dinner in Hamilton Island amongst Irrigear member stores and other platinum suppliers.

"To once again be selected as the Supplier of the Year for Irrigear is a great honor and something everyone across the whole Philmac business is extremely excited about. Philmac is a very proud Australian manufacturer and to win this award at the same time Irrigear is celebrating their 25th Anniversary makes the win even more special. Irrigear is considered Australia’s premium provider of effective solutions to the wider water industry and our partnership over the past 25 years has definitely provided great opportunities for both businesses to grow and develop.

The wider team at Philmac including our Sales, Marketing, Customer Service, Manufacturing and Distribution staff, not forgetting the all important accounts and admin staff, would like to acknowledge Simon and Lisa from the Irrigear Head Office for all their hard work and dedication and we would also like to thank everyone associated with each and every Irrigear member for making their businesses so successful and supporting suppliers like Philmac, it really is appreciated. At Philmac we really love working with Irrigear and we look forward to the next 25 years of business together!" 
John Pivac, National Sales Manager, Philmac.

Presenting the award Irrigear General Manager Simon Treptow said "It’s hard to find a better supporter of Irrigear… congratulations to the Philmac team for their outstanding work. Because the award is judged by the people working in our stores, any Supplier of the Year winner can rest assured the award is well deserved. In the case of Philmac, I can also add that from a group perspective, it’s hard to find a better supporter of Irrigear. Philmac certainly values working with Irrigear and it shows in the strong relationships between them and all our stores. Congratulations to the whole team at Philmac for their outstanding work."
