Now in its 28th year, The Electrical Industry Awards (EIA) is the only awards programme that brings together the entire UK electrical sector to reward and celebrate the very best in products, people, businesses and projects.

The awards are judged by an independent panel of experts representing the UK Electrical sector, including LIA, JIB, ECA, NICEIC and NAPIT, and the whole process is moderated by the editor of Electrical Times.

Should you become a finalist or even better go on to win, the EIA represents an extremely cost-effective, yet inspiring way to increase your company’s marketing capital.

The Contractor of the Year category is split into two awards, Contractor of the Year with a turnover under £5 million, and Contractor of the Year with a turnover over £5 million.

These categories are open to contracting companies (electrical or M&E) operating in the UK. The judges are looking for the following:

  • Improved market performance, including sales growth and market share
  • Evidence of innovation and creative solutions in response to project challenges
  • Effective business management and a commitment to training and staff development

Entry submissions should consist of no more than 600 words covering the points above to explain why your company should be considered for the award. Please include supporting information such as brochures, press releases, reviews and testimonials from clients and details of annual turnover. (Please note that any sensitive information will be treated in the strictest confidence by the organiser.)
