MIMICO wins prestigious Metso award

MIMICO had been named as Metso’s Distributor of the Year for 2018

Coinciding with MIMICO’s 30th birthday was the announcement that the company had been named as Metso’s Distributor of the Year for 2018, with the business competing with 104 other international distributors to win the prestigious honour.


The award was presented to representatives of MIMICO at Metso’s Distributor Days event, which was held in Tampere, Finland on 7 and 8 October 2019. 

MIMICO’s crushing and screening business manager, Garth Taylor, was part of the team that accepted this award on behalf of the company.

"It was a big surprise and honour to win this award against so many successful global distributors," says Garth.

For Metso, MIMICO stood out as obvious winners of this award. "At Metso, we look for distributors who are service-orientated rather than equipment sellers, and MIMICO, who are an exceptionally customer-centric company really fits this vision," says Adrian Wood, Metso’s vice president distribution.

"We’re absolutely over the moon to receive this recognition," says MIMICO’s founder and managing director, Rex Davies.

"We’ve built our business, both with Metso and the other brands we distribute, by focusing on four key areas. I call them our four Ps. Our people are one of the cornerstones of our ongoing success, along with the top-quality products we distribute.

"And the passion we have for what we do can never be underestimated. We love what we do, and I think this shines through every day."

Prior to the function at which MIMICO received the Distributor of the Year award, Rex presented an overview of MIMICO’s first 30 years to a packed audience that included many of Metso’s distributors from across the globe.

"It was great fun just putting the presentation together," says Rex. "Reliving some of the early struggles, reminiscing over the many stories that came up, and then comparing all that to where we are now was an experience in itself."
