THE Edinburgh Boiler Company (EBC) is celebrating after winning the Small Company Achievement of the Year award at the 2021 H&V News Awards.
A panel of judges from across the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) sector praised the firm for investing in staff, its initiatives for customers including NHS discounts and priority appointments, and its environmental commitment that sees a tree planted for every boiler fitted.
The award was presented during a ceremony in London, hosted by comedian Rob Beckett.
EBC managing director Mark Glasgow said, “I’m immensely proud to have picked up this award. It’s a really important one for us as we were up against businesses from across the UK. It’s the biggest and most prestigious awards the sector has running at the moment. Congratulations to all the other companies who were shortlisted, some great businesses, each equally deserving.
“The win reflects the high professional standards we set and the huge amount of work that everyone puts in. It wouldn’t have been possible without our amazing staff or our customers. I am confident the HVAC industry will lead the way in the journey towards net zero by reducing carbon from heating.
“The Edinburgh Boiler Company will keep doing what it can in the fight against climate change and this kind of recognition that we have received has given everyone a real boost and a renewed focus to keep going the extra mile.”
EBC was also shortlisted for the Domestic Heating Contractor of the Year award.
The company recently expanded into a larger base in the city, with the premises also housing its new Energy Training Academy, designed to help reduce the sector’s skills shortage.
In March, EBC became the first member of the STV Green Fund with a pledge to plant a tree for every boiler fitted. That number currently sits at more than 550. Earlier this year the firm was named winner of the Outstanding Customer Service Initiative category at the 2021 Global Business Excellence Awards.
