Amari Plastics celebrates in style with supplier partners
2015 is Amari Plastics’ 40th Anniversary and as part of the company’s year-long celebrations, it hosted a gala party event for its key suppliers at the beautiful and historic Oakley Court riverside hotel at Windsor on the 25th and 26th of June 2015.
Over 50 guests from leading manufacturers throughout the UK, America, Europe and Asia arrived on the first day, to enjoy a full programme of English-themed entertainment and refreshments, starting with a sumptuous cream tea and a game of croquet!
An afternoon beer-tasting event was a huge hit with many guests and others enjoyed a round of golf on the hotel’s golf course. Some found time for a swim in the pool or a cycle ride along the Thames.
In the evening, a delicious three course dinner was followed by speeches paying respect and thanks to the suppliers for their support over 40 years. Then entertainment from talented up-and-coming singer Jo Howard took the party into the night.
The following morning, guests enjoyed a trip along the Thames on two beautiful classic river steamers – one of which was famously used to transport Her Majesty the Queen on her Diamond Jubilee River Pageant in 2012.
Jamie Manifold, Amari Plastics’ Supplier Relations Manager, said: “Our relationships with suppliers are a cornerstone of our success. In fact, without them, there would be no Amari Plastics! So it’s always been our priority to engender trust and friendship and build really strong and durable, long-term supplier relationships. This party was a way of saying thank you to them for their continued support. Many of our guests represent companies with whom we have been in partnership for decades. As an example, Amari Plastics has been a distributor of Bayer products since the formation of the company in 1975.”
The event was one of a series of celebrations planned for 2015. Forthcoming events are planned to honour and entertain the company’s other two key stakeholder groups: its customers and employees.
