2019 Supplier of the Year

2019 Supplier of the Year

Philmac Australia – Excellence, Innovation, Service & Support

Philmac Australia wins Irrigear Supplier of the Year Award for 2019. Adelaide-based manufacturer, Philmac, is no stranger to the podium on Irrigear’s awards nights – once again being named Irrigear’s Supplier of the Year (SOTY). The win makes it two consecutive wins for the innovative producer of fittings, valves and connectors.

Philmac’s General Manager of Sales AUS/NZ, Sean Callaghan went on to say “The award means a great deal to Philmac. We employ over 250 people in Adelaide that are mainly involved in the manufacture of our products and the Philmac team gets such a boost from such prestigious recognitionThe current levels of service of industry suppliers to Irrigear is very high, so this makes this award even more special." 

The Supplier of the Year award recognises excellence across a range of criteria including innovation, service and support. To win, a supplier must care as much about the best solutions, products and service levels as Irrigear’s member stores do.  Irrigear General Manager, Simon Treptow, noted that the award shows a special commitment to success. “Going above and beyond is not unusual for Irrigear’s Loyal Suppliers – but Philmac just always seems to have that edge. Whether it’s product quality and innovation, or just good old fashioned attention to customer service and support, the team at Philmac just seems to try that little bit harder." Congratulations to the entire Philmac team.
