Parfetts operates depots in Aintree, Anfield, Birmingham, Halifax, Middlesbrough, Sheffield, Sommercoates and Stockport, with operations covering England, North Wales and the Midlands.
The wholesaler was able to award this bonus due to its like-for-like sales increasing by 4.7% on £605 million in the previous financial year, while sales topped £634 million over the last year.
