Harrogate Training Provider Named Global Giant’s Supplier of the Year

An up and coming Harrogate based training provider has been named the ‘Supplier of the Year’ for a global trading group.

Family-run Quarterdeck has been named by Beijer Ref as its UK and Ireland ‘Supplier of the Year’ following its annual Suppliers’ Dinner.

Quarterdeck is the first service provider to be recognised, with the accolade traditionally going to product suppliers.

Beijer Ref, the largest refrigeration and air conditioning wholesaling group in the UK, first approached Quarterdeck in 2016 and has enjoyed a fruitful business relationship since.

So far, 25 Beijer Ref employees have benefitted from Quarterdeck’s leadership and communications training with its senior management scheduled to undertake the courses in the summer.

Founded in 2014, Quarterdeck provides high level, effective leadership training with clients including ASDA, Co-Op and Hermes, as well as many SMEs and smaller partnerships.

John Billson, MD at Beijer Ref, said “As the managing director of the largest UK refrigeration and air conditioning wholesaling group I am constantly looking at ways of keeping well ahead of the competition.”

“My team is the biggest asset I have and investing in training is paramount to success. Quarterdeck have always exceeded my high expectations in the development of my team and I would recommend them to anyone other than my competition.”

Laura Bouttell, managing director of Quarterdeck added: “It’s been fantastic working with Beijer Ref. John is committed to developing his people and as a result has seen a great return on investment. It’s easy to put off training and see it as a cost but John rightly sees it as an investment and is delighted to see the results hitting the bottom line.”
