Mechanical and electrical services specialist J S Wright has honoured its key suppliers for their excellent standards of quality, commitment and service delivery at an annual awards ceremony in Birmingham.

R&M Fixings & Supports, a Southampton-based national supplier of building fixings and support products, received the 2019 Supplier of the Year trophy as a first-time winner at the luncheon held at Cucina Rustica restaurant.

Bristol underfloor heating specialist Mec-Serv and Woking-based renewable energy systems provider SAV Systems also received trophies after being named Subcontractor of the Year and Manufacturer of the Year respectively.

The awards for outstanding levels of product and consultancy service, delivery and quality were based on nominations from staff across J S Wright’s mechanical and electrical design, installation, prefabrication and maintenance operations.

J S Wright Managing Director Phil Leech commented: “Without our key subcontractors, suppliers and manufacturers, J S Wright would not be as successful as we are. They are a vital addition to our team – and it is a pleasure to work with such like-minded people and companies.

“The fact that the nominations for these awards have come from all departments is testament to how well our suppliers are integrated within our business.”

R&M Director Steve Cargill said: “J S Wright have been a customer ever since we started in business in 2004. We share similar values to those ingrained in J S Wright’s DNA and our businesses have grown successfully side by side ever since. Hence, having been runners up on some six occasions, accepting the J S Wright Supplier of the Year award on behalf of everyone at R&M Fixings & Supports has been a source of great pride and satisfaction.”

He added: “It really is great to feel valued and a part of J S Wright’s successful team. Special recognition must go to our Gary Neale and Rebecca Cargill who continue to work so hard to provide J S Wright and its various site teams with the highest levels of service.”

Mec-Serv Director Matt Pullin said: “Winning the award for best Subcontractor from our key client means a great deal to me personally and all my team. It’s an amazing achievement and I’m very proud of all my staff for achieving this. It’s really nice for them to know that their hard work does not go unnoticed.”

SAV Systems Director Jan Hansen commented: “All of us at SAV are hugely proud to have won the 2019 Manufacturer of the Year award. This award is a great endorsement of the can-do attitude and attention to detail which we bring to everything we do.

“Our people have regular dealings with their J S Wright counterparts across all project stages, from initial M&E design to final commissioning. We look forward to our next chapter of working together.”

Founded in Birmingham in 1890, J S Wright designs, manufactures, installs and maintains mechanical and electrical services for the hotel, residential, social housing, student accommodation, leisure and commercial sectors from its offices in Aston and central London.
