SELECT announce nominees for 2015 awards

SELECT, the electrotechnical campaigning trade body, has once again organised a major awards event to recognise and reward the resilience, professionalism and technical excellence of the people working in the industry.

As ever, the competition for the 2015 awards has been intense as firms and individuals who have survived and thrived during the tough years of the recession reap the rewards of the diversity and robustness of Scotland’s electrical sector.

And, once again, the Apprentice of the Year category will showcase the brightest and best of the talented youngsters who will take the sector towards the challenges of tomorrow. Further categories include Best New Product, Best Use of Training, Best Environmental Project and Best Delivery of Customer Service amongst others. The Electrical Contractor of the Year will be chosen from these categories and a special Lifetime Achievement award for services to the trade will be made on the night of the ceremony.

Newell McGuinness (pictured), SELECT managing director, said: ‘The sector is back in good health after some tough years and continuing with its mission to provide customers with a first class, professional service.

‘The electrical trade is a dynamic working environment, with innovation and exciting new products brining new challenges every day for the dedicated people who install and maintain them safely and efficiently.

‘Electricians are dedicated, hard-working people and it is our honour to turn the spotlight on them and remind the rest of the world of how important they are to our continued economic success.’
