BayWa r.e. Solar Systems Ltd have been awarded the title "Top PV Supplier Wholesale 2017" this year by EuPD Research. This is the third time that BayWa r.e. have won the award in the UK and it confirms the particularly high level of satisfaction experienced by PV installers when it comes to customer focus and sales.

When asked about the award Ian Draisey, Managing Director of BayWa r.e. Solar Systems replied:

"We are delighted to have been named "Top PV Supplier Wholesale 2017" in the UK. This award adds to the list of EuPD Research awards achieved by BayWa r.e. in Germany in recent years. We pride ourselves on providing high levels of customer service and an unrivalled portfolio of high quality solar PV products in the UK."

EuPD Research draws on 10 years of experience conducting surveys amongst PV installers and end customers. The independent seal of approval "Top PV Supplier" reflects the attitude of qualified installers to PV wholesalers. Apart from the breadth and depth of range offered by wholesalers, aspects of customer satisfaction and loyalty are also considered as part of the satisfaction survey. As a result, this seal of approval can be seen as a genuine confirmation that helps installers and end customers to identify a wholesaler that shares their own high quality aspirations.
