Leading electrotechnical businesses win top industry awards
Twenty electrotechnical and engineering services organisations and individuals recognised at 2019 ECA Industry Awards
10 June 2019
The 2019 ECA Industry Awards showcased some of the key achievements by leading talent in the sector during an impressive ceremony held in London on Friday 7 June.
In all, 19 top-performing businesses from across the industry scooped honours at the awards, which were supported by joint headline sponsors LEDVANCE and Electrium.
Former ECA President Bill Wright, of W Wright Electrical Ltd, also picked up the ‘major contribution to the industry’ award. Bill was recognised for his decades working tirelessly in the industry to create a fair environment for both employers and employees, and for his dedication to pushing for delivery of good quality apprenticeships.
Helen Atkinson, ECA Director of Member Services and Awards Adjudicator, said:
“Many congratulations to those Members who deservedly won this year’s ECA Industry Awards, and also to the highly commended nominees who all submitted impressive entries. We would like to encourage ECA Members who are working on impressive and innovative projects during 2019, or who are delivering new initiatives, to enter the 2020 awards.”
Guests on the night were treated to a range of entertainment, including live music and table magic. Thousands of pounds were also raised for the Electrical Industries Charity during a prize draw. TV personalities Huw Edwards and Alan Dedicoat hosted the proceedings and presented awards to the winning ECA organisations and individuals.
