Uni-Select says it officially commemorated its suppliers in order to show them that the corporation is truly appreciative and grateful for the hard work they put into providing Uni-Select with best service.

“At Uni-Select, we deeply value the quality of the relationship we have with our suppliers.

The Diamond Award is the most prestigious prize of the Supplier Awards. The prize is awarded in recognition of dependable and detail-oriented service to the supplier having given the best support to Uni-Select customers. This award recognizes the quality of sales tools, fill rate, lead time, inventory management, service (training, tech support) and manpower support, among others. It is attributed to a supplier that offers quality products and sustainable and efficient service. This year, Brake Parts Inc. is the recipient of the Diamond Award.

Three prizes called The Golden Ally are awarded in recognition for sales and marketing achievements.

This year, Tenneco Inc. is the recipient of this award.
  • The category of Marketing Campaign Of The Year, which is awarded to a supplier whose marketing campaign stood out, was given to Mevotech L.P. The recipient’s campaign had to be focused on developing sales at the installers’ level to support them in offering the best solutions to their consumers.
  • The third category, Training And Technical Support, represents a supplier who provided efficient and innovative training material designed to simplify technical education on installation or specialized maintenance. It also could be awarded to a supplier who provided professional technical support material and/or online and phone technical support through an e-catalog or website.

The Tech-Savvy Award – New Technology also is awarded to Gates Canada Inc., a supplier that has developed and implemented the most user-friendly and innovative IT program to support the sales development at the independent jobber or installer level.
