The BPMA, the British Promotional Merchandise Association, the body which regulates the UK corporate merchandise industry, has this year recognized Leighmans.com among the finalists at its annual awards.
Leading supplier of corporately-branded gifts and branded mugs Leighmans.com has been acknowledged for its fine year in 2011 by the BPMA. The association rated the company as a ‘finalist’ in its ‘Distributor of the Year 2011′ class.
For over 45 years the BPMA has operated as the regulator of the merchandise and corporate gifts space, ensuring that appropriate standards are adhered to. The BPMA Awards are a recognition of companies which have set high benchmarks for quality.
The categories which are recognized at each year’s annual BPMA Awards include Campaign of the Year, Supplier of the Year, Personality of the Year, Innovative Product of the Year and Distributor of the Year.
Darren Leigh, Director at Leighmans.com, said of the news, “We are of course over the moon to be placed by the BPMA again, it’s a real approval of the work we do and how we approach it.”
“Our customers and partners trust us to deliver on and exceed their expectations – we are proud of our reputation in the sector. No matter what product we are supplying, be it promotional calculators or personalised mugs, we strive to offer the very best quality and service possible.”
While the corporate gifts space may yet see companies reducing marketing budgets through 2012, Darren Leigh does not see this as any kind of barrier to future success for Leighmans.com.
“This latest acknowledgement from the BPMA just further endorses the quality of our service and the attitude we have towards our clients and partners. We are looking forward to an even better and more successful 2012.”
