The annual Electrical Industry Awards ceremony recently took place at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington. Hosted by radio and television presenter Matt Forde, the Awards are designed to recognise excellence, innovation and progress across the electrical trade.
Amongst the winners were the likes of Dimplex, Metrel and LED Eco Lights as they all won an award: Energy and Carbon Saving Award; Innovative Test & Measurement Product of the Year; and Innovative Lighting Product of the Year respectively.
Another winner was ventilation specialist Vent-Axia (pictured). The Sussex-based manufacturer received the accolade of Innovative Residential/Domestic Product of the Year for its Lo-Carbon Solo Plus.
Jenny Smith, Product Marketing Manager, Vent-Axia commented: “We are thrilled the award has given us industry recognition for these technological innovations. It is also very satisfying to be able to provide tenants with affordable, comfortable, quiet, energy efficient ventilation, which provides good indoor air quality while removing the risk of condensation and mould."
Rodney Jack, editor of Electrical Times stated, “The Electrical Industry Awards are our way of recognising those within the electrical trade who go the extra mile to make it the best it can be."
