Importer of the Year – Whispering SmithMay 2, 2019 1854 min reading Uncategorized
The Insider International Trade Awards recently took place for 2018 and we are delighted to announce that Whispering Smith won the Importer of the Year award.
The award is for ‘businesses using import for their supply chain, making best use of the local import economy and working with international partners’.
Diane Heslop, Whispering Smith’s Finance Director, says “our key to success is carrying stock lines of in-season fashion trends, at the right price that will sell to those important end consumers. We achieve the company’s success by the quality, ability and commitment of our staff. The development of staff knowledge and their commitment to continual growth is fundamental to our business principles. This is clearly shown in the high level of service we in-turn provide to our growing client base. As an importer and exporter of fashion clothing, we at Whispering Smith pride ourselves on 50 years of excellence in management and customer service. It is a fantastic achievement for the company to be named Importer of the Year.”
This comes as we open up our wholesale B2B stock website to Europe, building upon the success the new platform has had in the UK. Retailers across the EU can now buy wholesale stock with no minimum order quantity, with fast 2-5 day EU delivery dependent on the delivery country.
Having also achieved Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status in December 2016, Whispering Smith is recognised internationally as a secure, efficient and compliant partner within the fashion supply chain.
We are proud to carry the AEO quality mark and thrilled to be recognised as the North West Insider Importer of the Year.
