Distributor of the Year was awarded to Sugatsune USA, which sold 1,000,090 Fastmount clips in the 2018-19 period, emphasising the growth of Fastmount into the rapidly expanding architectural sector.

Best Growth was awarded to Neva Marine, Fastmount’s distributor in Turkey, which showed 129% growth on 2018 clip sales, supplying primarily to the marine market.

Best Promotion was awarded to Furniplast, a new distributor in Belarus which has taken advantage of Fastmount’s growing audience online and at trade shows, finding success in a market that has adapted to the Fastmount system rapidly.
