Mila was named the Component Supplier of the Year at the G-17 Awards, in recognition of its outstanding work in tackling the industry wide issue of hardware corrosion, and its decision to deliver a new programme of Smart Hardware, Simple Guarantees to customers.

Managing Director Richard Gyde collected the trophy on behalf of the whole team, which included sales, marketing, testing, supply chain and warehouse representatives, all of whom had been key to Mila’s success in 2016/17.

Speaking after the presentation, Richard said: “This is a hugely competitive category because it is open to suppliers from every sector of the industry. We’re obviously delighted to have won – it’s a fantastic endorsement of what we have achieved this year, and a massive well done to everyone at Mila.”

This is the third time that Mila has won the Component Supplier of the Year award and the trophy now has pride of place at the company’s Daventry headquarters, alongside the awards from 2013 and 2011.
