Twenty-one leading businesses from across the engineering and electrotechnical services sector have been shortlisted by judges for this year’s ECA Annual Awards, beating off major competition in the process.
The successful organisations have been recognised by the judges for their performances in eight categories, which include: ‘Contractor of the Year’, ‘Best Client/Contractor Partnership’, ‘Innovation in Contracting’, ‘Best Health and Safety Initiative’, and ‘Excellence in Training and Development’.
The panel of judges, which included the ECA’s Paul Reeve (head judge), Philip Buckle, director general of Electrical Safety First, and Mark Smith, marketing director at Certsure, convened on 25th April to consider and rate all the entries.
Adjudicator and ECA director of member services Helen Atkinson comments: “As in previous years, the standard of entries was again exceptionally high and I congratulate all those who have been shortlisted for their achievements. We look forward to welcoming many of these top businesses to our industry leading Annual Awards and Gala Dinner in June.”
The eight winners will be announced at the ECA Gala Dinner, supported by headline sponsors Ledvance and Electrium, which is being held on Friday 9th June at London Hilton Bankside. Alan Dedicoat – the voice of the National Lottery – is back by popular demand as the compère.
Guests on the night will be treated to a range of entertainment, including comedy from TV star Hugh Dennis, and live music, and will have the opportunity to network and socialise with colleagues from the industry. The event also aims to raise thousands of pounds for the Electrical Industries Charity.
