It is a great honor to receive this recognition.”

We wish to recognise Sanbra Fyffe for their contribution to quality and standards in the plumbing supply industry as well as for their conduct in the areas of trust, commitment, performance & customer centricity.

We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience. The business goes through at least two interviews and is scored on every part of the process against set metrics.
