AmPet Products wins Innovation & Excellence Award

AmPet Products has been announced as the winner of the Corporate LiveWire Innovation & Excellence Awards for Pet Accessory Wholesaler of the Year - UK 2018.


The Corporate LiveWire Awards represent the pinnacle of business achievement, championing the best in their respective fields.


Their corporate awards cover the most important sectors of business, from finance advisories, funding providers to law firms and specialist advisory companies that deal with mergers and acquisitions.


The culmination of the awards is the Global Award, covering businesses of every type that have proven their excellence throughout the year and years past.


AmPet’s marketing director Alex Wilson commented: “As a small independent distributor of American dog products, we were very thrilled when we were contacted by Corporate LiveWire to say we had been nominated for this very prestigious award.


"We never thought that we would end up the winner as we assumed one of the larger distributors would surely win. Can you imagine our surprise and excitement when we received the telephone call telling us that we had won?


“As a small company of dedicated people, we pride ourselves in bringing to the UK market some of America’s most innovative and unique pet products along with the British made Xtra Dog fleece walking harnesses for dogs.


"This award is a tribute to our team who work tirelessly to help pet shops stock products that are not available from the mainstream supply chains in the pet industry.”


Kerry Payne, Corporate Livewire Account Manager, said: “During the awards process, we invited over 100,000 corporate professionals, the general public and our subscriber base to nominate associations, companies and individuals based on their achievements and strengths. Additionally, Corporate Livewire's extensive research team has put forward a selection of individuals who have excelled within their sector.

"Information was submitted on each nominee and our independent judging panel have decided upon the most deserving teams, practices and individuals to walk away with one of these prestigious accolades. Award winners will gain a place in our soon-to-be published awards winners' guide, which will be distributed to over 200,000 businesses and professionals, as well as being distributed in Aspire Airport Lounges around the world.”
