Double delight for CMO Group PLC at the DIY Week Awards
CMO Group PLC, the UK’s largest online only retailer of building materials, has taken home two of the top prizes from the 2022 DIY Week Awards.
The prestigious annual award scheme is organised by DIY Week, a leading trade publication read by retailers and suppliers to the home improvement market. With a shortlist comprising some of the biggest names in the industry, CMO was successful in beating off strong competition to win two of the night’s biggest accolades. CMO was first named as ‘Team of the Year’ before going on to win the ‘Business Expansion Award’ after impressing the independent judging panel of industry experts.
CMO’s triumph at the DIY Week Awards is the latest highlight in what has been a successful period of growth, with the company enjoying a rise in sales, gross profits and adjusted EBITDA, reflecting an increase in market share. As well as the company’s listing on the London Stock Exchange’s AIM, CMO has gone on to expand its customer base and order value, enhancing its existing core service offering with the acquisition of both Total Tiles and more recently JTM Plumbing. Now with eight online superstores, CMO has the strategic goal to provide their customers with everything they need to build or maintain a home, through a simple, convenient and supported shopping experience.
Commenting on the award wins, Ben Hodson, CMO’s brand director said:
“CMO is a very people-focused company, both in terms of our customers and our colleagues, so it’s fitting that we have been recognised for both our business expansion and for our hardworking and dedicated team. Just as every individual customer is important to us, each member of our team has a key role to play in ensuring that we can continue to offer the widest choice of products, the highest level of service and the best help and advice to keep our customers satisfied and keen to return. In many ways, we are only at the start of our journey, as we plan to unveil new products and superstore launches over the next few months, so it’s fantastic to have already won two top industry awards. Thanks to our all customers and our team – we couldn’t have done it without you!”
The DIY Week Awards were held on Friday 20th May at The Tower Hotel in London.
