BA Components Scoop Two BKU Awards
2017 is shaping up to be a great year for us here at BA HQ. We recently scooped two awards at the BKU Awards in London. We won Best Kitchen Components Brand 2017 and our fabulous After Sales Services Rhonda Darragh won the much-coveted award for Best Customer Service 2017. A BKU Award is a prestigious stamp of endorsement acknowledging outstanding service and hard work as voted for by the industry.
Rhonda Darragh who has worked for BA Components since 2000 and takes care of After Sales tells us “I am delighted to have won the award for Best Customer Services. I am truly grateful that our customers voted for me to win. It was a fabulous night getting to meet Jimmy Carr and all for doing my job to the best of my ability!”
Our Sales & Marketing Director David added “We’re delighted as a company to receive these awards as they have been the result of votes from our customers, suppliers, peers and friends in the industry. I’m personally pleased for Rhonda who puts in the time and effort offering a fantastic after service to our customers, this personal recommendation is well deserved.”
The evening was a roaring success with 300 members of the kitchen and bathroom industry celebrating hard work and achievement across the sector. Organised by the publisher of BKU Magazine, Datateam Business Media, the BKU Awards is designed to recognise and highlight excellence across the sector, from leading retailers to commendable manufacturers and outstanding individuals.
On arrival at the venue, guests were greeted with an exclusive champagne reception, providing the perfect environment for networking. Attendees then proceeded into the main hall where they received a warm welcome from BKU Magazine’s sales and advertising manager Max Shannon and publication and event manager Carl Hearnden.
Guests were treated to a sumptuous three-course meal before the brilliantly funny Jimmy Carr took to the stage to perform his comedy routine and present the awards. Event and publication manager Carl Hearnden comments: “I am overwhelmed with the amount of support we have received from the industry this year. The BKU Awards 2017 had a fantastic turnout and it was brilliant to see both familiar and new faces alike at the event. All of our finalists should be congratulated; they have demonstrated exceptional hard work and dedication to the industry and should be very proud for having been shortlisted in such a prestigious event, it truly is a great achievement. I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to all of our brilliant sponsors, without whom the BKU Awards wouldn’t be possible.”
