From Birr to Birmingham
Insulation4less scooped 2 awards at the National Energy Efficiency Awards on Friday 27th of September. According to all, it was a great event and a great opportunity to meet some of our clients and make some new connections.
The team, including Johnpaul Manning, Managing Director, traveled on Friday via a propeller plane and was already in high spirits upon safe arrival at the VOX conference centre in Birmingham.
Alas no time was wasted on the cultural delights of Birmingham, maybe next year… Once everybody got their frock on it was time to regroup and prepare for the event.
Here is the team studying their notes.
We had the pleasure to invite guests to our table and were delighted to have Anita from Uvalue Insulation, Wesley from Danosa and Wayne Gibbons from SIG Insulation, join us for the evening.
Anita works with Uvalue Insulation which supplies Insulation all over the UK, and is in regular contact with our sales team. It was great to finally put a face to her name.
Wesley is Sales Manager at Danosa, and Insulation4less is one of their distributors.
Wayne Gibbons is the Branch Manager at SIG Insulation.
Here they are, enjoying our largess:
After much food and drinks, it was time for our MC James Nesbit to lighten the mood further. He did his usual best and the jury’s still out on the verdict, but anyway, at least we got a nice picture of him and some of our crew.
Insulation4less was in competition for 2 awards, Supplier of the Year and Director of the Year. The calibre of the competition was impressive, we were competing with more than 12 other companies in each category, some of them already established household names. But in spite of that we manage to scoop 2 awards as Insulation4less arrived in 4th place in both categories. It was also the third year in a row that we were successful in the Supplier of the Year category.
The judges were only doing us justice by recognising the extent to which the company has grown in recent years via its popular online sites: insulation4less.co.uk - build4less.co.uk (and let's not forget insulation4us.com). Powered and designed in Birr in Offaly,Ireland, our sites have become hugely successful among trades and DIY in the UK and North America. The judges took notice and we were rewarded accordingly. But that’s not all, folks!! you know us… We’re never satisfied.
The friendly competitive spirit of the evening spilled out on the dancefloor and the rest is history.
