Fluid Branding are delighted that they built on 2015’s second place win to take the top spot in the 2016 Sourcing City Awards. The Sourcing City Annual Awards are a way for suppliers and distributors within the promotional merchandise industry to vote for their top companies to work with. Each voter gets three votes, on a first to third basis, so they can give weight to the suppliers or distributors they most value.

“It really is such an honour to receive the Distributor of the Year Award,” said Fluid’s Marketing Manager Gemma Richards. “It’s a fantastic feeling to see all our hard work pay off in this way. We’ve been through some exciting times in the past year, and the fact that we’ve won this award on top of everything else just goes to show what a great team we have – and are continuing to build! Knowing that we’re so valued by our suppliers is a great boost to the team – we’re delighted!”

2016 saw Fluid Branding embark on a large-scale expansion, with the opening of numerous offices across the UK including London and Manchester. With all this going on, a commitment to customer service and relationships has been a constant priority – an attitude which has been confirmed and rewarded in winning this award.

CEO Matt Franks also commented, “This is great news and gives us really strong ground to build on for 2017. We’ve got big plans for the year ahead, one of our key strengths is maintaining and building upon the relationships that we’ve already forged with customers and suppliers alike. Our new office in Amsterdam is just the start of some exciting developments that we have for the coming year and being presented with this prestigious award just goes to show us that we’re doing things right.”
