A number of top performing companies have been nominated for this year’s Electrical Contractors Association (ECA) Annual Awards.
The firms have been shortlisted after a thorough judging system was undertaken by eight experts on an independent panel.
A total of 34 entries have been nominated for this year’s awards in eight different award categories, including ‘Best Health and Safety Initiative’, ‘Best Client/Contractor Partnership’ and ‘Contractor of the Year’.
Included in the shortlists are various firms who also received nominations at last year’s ceremony, such as Darke & Taylor, Dodd Group and Quartzelec.
Paul Reeve, Director of Business at ECA and head judge at the annual awards, said that after an unprecedented level of entries for this year’s awards, there were a number of tough choices to be made by the independent judging panel.
He added that with such a high level of entries, the 34 final nominees were eventually chosen based on best practice in the industry and company success stories.
The ECA received more award submissions than ever before, some 142, which were all given careful consideration by prominent figures in the industry, including Charity Marketing Director at Electrical Industries, Tessa Ogle, Executive Director at CEDIA, Wendy Griffiths, and Director of Operations at JTL, Caroline Turner.
The winners of the eight awards are set to be announced on July 8 at the ECA Annual Gala Dinner and Awards, sponsored by LEDVANCE, at the Celtic Manor in South Wales.
Those in attendance will enjoy a night of entertainment with Alan Dedicoat (voice of Strictly Come Dancing and The National Lottery) hosting the event along with well known comedian Stephen K. Amos.
The ECA are still taking bookings but insist that there are only a limited number of tickets still available for the event.
In the running for the coveted ‘ECA Large Contractor of the Year’ are W T Parker Group Services Ltd, Imtech Engineering Services Central and Dodd Group.
