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 special presentation at industry trade show, Installer2018, on 9 May 2018. 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, the awards recognise heating installers that go above and beyond the call of duty. The award scheme runs annually to create a positive talking point in the industry, working to promote the excellent customer service delivered by heating installers which can often go unrecognised.
Speaking of his new title as the UK’s Heating Installer Awards winner 2018, Shaun said: “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.”
Rachel Smith, general manager at Polypipe Underfloor Heating, said: “We work closely with the best installers on a daily basis and are always looking for ways to celebrate the talent the industry has to offer. Seeing the entries for the Heating Installer Awards reinforced just how much talent there is.
“The awards received more entries than ever this year and they were of a very high standard. We would like to congratulate Shaun on winning this year’s awards and encourage installers to consider entering next year.”
