2018 Supplier of the Year

Philmac Australia – Strong Relationships & Ongoing Support

Congratulations to Philmac, who are this year's Supplier Of The Year. Philmac have proven over the years that they know the importance of building a strong relationship between supplier and store.

Philmac proudly supply a wide range of irrigation and water management products through Irrigear stores across Australia. Philmac has been designing and manufacturing in Adelaide, Australia since 1929 and this continues today. They undertake extensive laboratory and field testing to ensure all their products last for generations.

On accepting the award, Sean Callaghan, General Manager of Sales at Philmac said “Philmac is very pleased to receive the Supplier of the Year award. The award resonates right throughout our whole business. All the Philmac teams, manufacturing, marketing, distribution, finance, sales and customer service work hard to provide the best service, quality and value possible for Irrigear. They greatly appreciate the recognition of their work through receiving the supplier of the year award. Clinton, Geoff and I really enjoyed the conference, well done to the Irrigear HO team on the quality of the event.”

Presenting the award Irrigear General Manager Simon Treptow said “The Supplier of the Year Award really cements the partnership all Irrigear stores have with the best suppliers in the industry. No store could give customers the best solutions without teaming the best advice with leading products. And that’s what the Supplier of the Year is all about: rewarding the special partnership every supplier has with Irrigear. It’s something that’s obvious to our customers and we’re happy to recognise it formally with the Supplier of the Year award.”
