Following hundreds of entries, a scrupulous judging panel and huge public vote, the winner of the UK’s Heating Installer Awards 2018 has been decided.
Shaun Scott of Derek Scott Plumbing and Heating, was announced as the national winner during a presentation at Installer2018.
Representing Scotland and already a brand ambassador for the plumbing and heating industry, Shaun is currently the face of WaterSafe and has recently worked to highlight awareness surrounding the use of lead within the industry.
Shaun was closely followed by the national runner up, Huw Jenkins of Wales.
Sponsored by some of the biggest names in the industry, including Danfoss, Polypipe, Sentinel, Vaillant UK, Wolseley and Avanti Gas, the awards are said to recognise heating installers that go above and beyond the call of duty.
The award scheme runs annually with the aim of creating a positive talking point in the industry, working to promote the excellent customer service delivered by heating installers which can often go unrecognised.
Shaun commented: “It feels great to be awarded Heating Installer Awards winner 2018. It’s amazing to get recognition for hard work and effort. I go into my job every day to help people out, but this isn’t just for me – it’s for all the loyal customers that have looked after me as much as I’ve looked after them over the years.”
Stephen Egerton, Marketing Operations – Heating at Wolseley, added: “Any initiative that shouts about the talented installers and good work within the industry, we are proud to be part of. Installers today don’t just have to carry out quality work; they provide advice and guidance to other installers and are helping change the face of the industry.
“Shaun is a worthy winner for the Heating Installer awards 2018 and we are looking forward to see what 2019 brings.”
The 2019 competition will open later this year. For further information and to register interest for next year’s awards, visit www.heatinginstallerawards.co.uk.
