Jon Crump, procurement director, from Interserve added: “Partnership and innovation are two of Interserve’s key values and are important factors when we choose to work with suppliers. Wolseley was not only nominated for this award by our operational teams but also clearly demonstrated these values during the last twelve months and are therefore a deserved winner of this award.”
