Doncaster-headquartered online bathroom retailer Victoria Plum wins retail category at Supply Chain Excellence Awards 2021

Doncaster-headquartered online bathroom retailer Victoria Plum has been named winner of the retail supply chain excellence award category at the Supply Chain Excellence Awards 2021.

The prestigious awards, which are now in their twenty-fifth year, are regarded as the benchmark for supply chain best practice. Attracting entries from across the UK and Europe, the awards are renowned for their rigorous judging process.

Held at the London Hilton on Park Lane, Victoria Plum won after being shortlisted alongside five other retail businesses comprising GANT, JD Outdoors, Pure Electric, Roper Rhodes and ToolStation.

Led by operations director, Andy Svenson, Victoria Plum’s supply chain and logistics capability sees the company source, secure and ship more than 13,000 products from factories to its customers’ homes.

Commenting on the award win, Andy said: “To be recognised by the Supply Chain Excellence Awards for our team’s capabilities is a fantastic achievement for Victoria Plum.

“Our dedicated and highly skilled team excels across our supply chain and operational needs by having an agile and flexible approach, and by building strong supplier partnerships. We look forward to continuing to grow our excellent supply chain capabilities to meet the needs of our continually expanding customer base.”

The award follows a stellar year for the online bathroom retailer which saw it post a record 46 per cent increase in sales to £103m for the year ended 28 February 2021. During the same period, EBITDA rose 115 per cent to £4.5m and the company increased its headcount from 349 to 398.

Victoria Plum’s chief executive, Paul McClenaghan, added: “Winning this award is testament to the constantly exceptional efforts and achievements of our supply chain and logistics team.

“Thanks to their hard work and commitment, we continue to be able to deliver products to customers throughout the UK despite the well-publicised pressures on many logistics operations.

“We know that this ability to provide our products in a timely manner is essential to meet the expectations of our new and existing customers as we continue to implement our growth strategy.”
