SELECT Nominees Are In For The 2012 Electrical Industry Awards

The cream of Scotland's electrical trade is preparing to gather again this autumn for a prestigious awards ceremony hosted by SELECT, the authoritative trade body for the electrotechnical industry in Scotland.

It has announced the nominees who will go head to head in a comprehensive array of award categories at a glittering ceremony to be held at the Radisson Blu in the centre of Glasgow on October 5.

The wide range of companies in contention illustrate the diversity and strength of Scotland's electrical sector, ranging from major electrical enterprises to local firms serving a clearly defined community, as well as the future of the trade - apprentices.

Newell McGuiness, SELECT Managing Director, said: "The awards will be particularly difficult to judge this year because of the outstanding qualities and overall excellence of the companies and individuals who are competing.
"It is a shame that there can be only one winner in each category, but all the nominees represent the cream of a sector which consistently provides high value, high quality, customer-focused service."
Mr McGuiness also paid tribute to the generous support offered to the electrical sector by this year's sponsors, BlueSky Pensions, Vaillant, the Electrical Safety Council, the Scottish Government, EC Insurance, Megger and Schneider Electric.
