3M - Bunzl chooses 3M as its top supplier
14th February 2013
3M was recently voted ‘supplier of choice’ by Bunzl sales representatives at the distributor’s annual safety conference.
3M was voted as ‘supplier of choice’ by Bunzl sales representatives at the distributor’s annual safety conference held at Manchester United Football Club’s Old Trafford ground in January.
A supplier ‘marketplace’ was held before the conference and 3M was one of 10 companies invited to showcase its safety solutions.
Said Gill Rix, Channel and Wholesale manager for 3M Personal Safety: “We ran a competition using our online hearing selector game and featured a number of products including the 3M™ Aura™ 9300+ respirator.
“We had the busiest stand at the event and when delegates were later asked to choose their favourite supplier using live voting pads we won by a landslide, securing 45 per cent of the vote.”
The conference was attended by 180 sales representatives from Bunzl’s safety business and focused on sales improvement, training and maximising the opportunity.
Added Gill: “A number of Bunzl sales people presented at the conference and Dave Webb from the Isleworth branch spoke about the importance of training. His entire slot was focused on the 3M specialist product training attended by 30 Bunzl sales reps in 2012.
“He said that this played a key role helping him secure a major deal with Crossrail for personal safety equipment and thanked the 3M team, in particular 3M sales executive Anni Bacon.”
