Morris Mica Hardware was named the group's first double millionaire, and Merlin Mica Hardware was named the first triple millionaire

Announcing the group's supplier awards, purchasing director Neil Hoy, said: "These awards are recognition of those suppliers who have done that bit more in the eyes of the Mica members. These awards are voted by Mica members, ands we have had the best response ever."

Direct Supplier of the Year was LG Harris, with Draper Tools in second place and ICI Paints third.

Henkel retained its trophy from the previous year as the Indirect Supplier of the Year, and Stax Trade Centres took the award for Wholesaler of the Year.

The Sales Team of the Year award went to the Draper Tools team, and the individual salesperson award went to Adrian Love from CO Hamshaw.

Mica members and suppliers at the annual banquet dug deep into their pockets and raised just under £1,000 for the Rainy Day Trust.
