We are pleased to announce that Digby Stone received a coveted national construction industry award in a glittering ceremony in London last week. The prestigious ‘Builders Merchants Awards’ celebrate excellence in the supply and distribution of goods to the building trade. We are extremely proud to say that Digby Stone picked up the ‘Supplier of the Year’ award, which recognizes achievements which result in high quality products, value for money, and exceptional customer service.
Hosted by West Midlands and national treasure, Sir Lenny Henry, the ceremony took place at the Hilton Park Lane in London.
Our 10th anniversary year has been marked with incredible achievements and as a independent family business we are extremely proud to have celebrated this milestone in such a successful way. From our first award win in May for ‘Best Landscaping Brand’ at the Builders Merchants Journal Awards to finishing the year as ‘Builder’s Merchants Supplier of the Year Award’, it has definitely been a year to remember.
Founded by husband and wife Darren and Claire Digby in a single room in their Stourbridge home, the company has grown rapidly and now has two dedicated sites, in Halesowen and Felixstowe, with a determined workforce of 20 local employees.
Supporting local businesses is very important to Darren and Claire, with Digby Stone supplying materials to builders’ merchants and landscapers in the area and throughout the UK. They comment: “We’ve very proud of our success over the last decade, which is down to our strong and dedicated team and the fantastic relationship we have with customers. Committed to our roots, our plans are to continue investing and developing our business in the West Midlands. The next step in our venture is to expand our range of hard landscaping displays so locals can visit and get a real feel for what’s possible in garden design. This also syncs well with our motto ‘Dare to be different!”
