A series of top performing firms have been shortlisted as nominees for this year’s ECA Annual Awards, following a rigorous judging process conducted by an independent panel of eight experts.

In total, some 34 entries have been shortlisted as nominees for the ECA Annual Awards 2016, spread across eight award categories, which include ‘Contractor of the Year’, ‘Best Client/Contractor Partnership’, and ‘Best Health and Safety Initiative’.

Among those shortlisted include a number of firms who were strong runners at last year’s awards, including Quartzelec, Dodd Group, and Darke & Taylor. The full list of shortlisted firms can be viewed below.

ECA Director of Business and the Annual Awards Head Judge, Paul Reeve commented:

“Following a record number of entries this year, the independent judging panel had some tough decisions to make to identify the 34 shortlisted nominees.

“There were some really good entries this year, with strong stories about company success and best practice in our industry”.

A record-breaking 142 award submissions were received for this year’s ECA’s Annual Awards, which were carefully considered by industry figures including JTL’s Director of Operations Caroline Turner, CEDIA’s Executive Director Wendy Griffiths, and Electrical Industries Charity Managing Director Tessa Ogle (see below for full list of judges).

The eight award winners will be announced at the ECA Annual Gala Dinner and Awards, supported by headline sponsor LEDVANCE, on Friday 8 July at Celtic Manor, South Wales.

Attendees will enjoy an evening of entertainment hosted by Alan Dedicoat – the voice of The National Lottery and Strictly Come Dancing – alongside top comedian Stephen K. Amos. There are now limited spaces remaining – to book your place, please visit www.eca.co.uk.
