BERRYALLOC was awarded the 2020 ‘supplier of the year’ award out of all nominated Optimera suppliers, and says this proves the strong relationship and close collaboration between the two companies. This took place during Optimera’s annual, coronavirus-safe Opptur event.
Over the past years, BerryAlloc has worked closely with Optimera as a floor supplier for the construction department. This partnership fostered significant growth for both companies, according to BerryAlloc: ‘BerryAlloc has a clear market profile and works closely together with our organisation. The company is particularly good at following up with our different stores and working purposefully with our sales team,’ Pål Erichsen, category director at Optimera, elaborates.
Criteria behind the Optimera ‘supplier of the year’ award consisted of the following elements: nurturing a close collaboration and good relationship with the company; proving significant growth; remaining flexible and positive; and having a solution-oriented mentality. Other influential factors included having a strong sustainability policy and a digital mindset.
On hearing the news, Philippe Dehedin, general manager BerryAlloc, stated the following: ‘This award is a sign of our team’s constant dedication to the service for our customers and partners – close collaboration, flexibility, and a solution-oriented approach all lead to common growth.’
Jan Lien, sales director Nordic for BerryAlloc, had the honour of collecting the award from Pål Erichsen at the Optimera headquarters on 17 February 2021.
‘We’re extremely honoured to have received this award,’ says Jan. ‘This signifies a good start to 2021, with one of our most important customers.’
