Suttons has distinguished itself as one of the sector’s foremost responsible business partners, after being recognised with a supplier’s award from one of the top petrochemical companies in the region, BASF PETRONAS Chemicals Sdn Bhd.
The supply chain and logistics provider beat off stiff competition to be named Best Logistics Provider 2012, an annual award presented by BASF PETRONAS Chemicals Sdn Bhd at their Responsible Care Open Day Awards ceremony in Malaysia, on 5th September 2013. The award honours partner organisations that lead the way in the responsible and safe management of chemicals, chemical products, processes and operations.

Nicholes said: “We are extremely proud to be so highly commended in such a strong field. The title is an acknowledgment of the extent to which Suttons values responsible business and the lengths we have gone to ensure that it’s enshrined, at every level, in our operations and processes.”
Now in its 14th year, the Award is presented annually and forms a major part of the organisation’s Responsible Care Week. Responsible Care is the global commitment of the chemical manufacturers and their suppliers to champion safe, sustainable systems and business process throughout the industry.
Commenting on the award win, Dr Volker Seidl, Director of Business Management at BASF PETRONAS Chemicals, said: “The award recognises the dedication, diligence and support the Suttons team continues to demonstrate towards upholding BASF PETRONAS Chemicals’ management codes of Responsible Care. Our cooperation with Sutton is yet another shining example for our strategic framework of ‘Partnering for Success’.”
