Held at Birmingham's NEC to a record-breaking audience, the 2023 SHE Awards partnered with the British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF) Awards to celebrate innovation, achievements, and promote the importance of high standards of excellence within occupational safety and health.
We've been in business for 40 years and have earned a reputation for supplying high-quality safety workwear, uniform, PPE, hygiene products, and safety equipment to leading brands such as P&O Cruises, AA, Serco, SSE, Anglian Water, and Red Funnel.
Now, after an incredible performance during 2022 in customer service, innovation, and sales growth, we've been recognised with one of the event's most sought-after awards.
But what made 2022 such a special and important year for Tower?
To meet the growing demands of our customer base, we invested in people to grow the team by 37% between January and December 2022! We also added a new 64,000 sq. ft. distribution centre to our operations in Dorset to cater specifically for the cruise industry.
We were also recognised for our dedication to sustainability, introducing eco-friendly and sustainable products to our range, demonstrating our commitment to environmental sustainability, and supporting customers with their own goals by providing solutions and services that help them reduce, reuse, and recycle. We've also teamed up with Amber, an award-winning energy management consultancy, to progress Tower's Net Zero journey.
Investing in technology, we further developed our CtrlCloud online ordering platform. CltrCloud puts customers in complete control, increasing efficiency and delivering cost savings of up to 20%. The improvements have made it even easier to create tailored catalogues and allocate products. Tower’s new product information management (PIM) has also been developed to help sales teams find and recommend products more quickly and efficiently.
CEO Charlie Aris said:
“2022 will go down in our history as a benchmark for progress when it comes to customer safety, excellence, and satisfaction in a 12-month period. By working, evolving, and learning together, we are now achieving goals that were only recently believed to be unattainable. To be recognised by winning the prestigious Distributor of the Year at the SHE Awards is a proud moment for myself and Tower. It’s a perfect way to celebrate 40 years in business!
