SEMA Distributor Group AGM
The AGM of the SEMA Distributor Group was hosted on 18th October 2012 by our Managing Director Simon King at the Metalforming Centre, Birmingham.
The day featured presentations on forthcoming revisions to SEMA safety codes for pallet racking and shelving systems. The afternoon featured a lively debate on how the SEMA Distributor Group would come together to raise standards and further demonstrate “clear blue water” between SDG members and those companies who were not members of SEMA.
Additionally, on the theme of “we are only as good as our suppliers”, the day featured the announcement of the results for the first SDG Supplier of the Year Awards, for best and most improved suppliers. In first place was Storax, and Redirack and Troax were voted into second and third place respectively. Apex won the most improved supplier award.
Congratulating the winners, Simon King, the new chairman of the SEMA Distributor Group (SDG) said: ‘It’s an old cliché but never more true. Our members are only as good as their suppliers. Together, our group will use its collective weight and influence to create better dialogue with manufacturers on service issues. We will also focus on gathering information on consistent poor performing suppliers and seek dialogue with these suppliers at a senior level using the collective influence of our members.’
