The OFTEC Awards for Excellence have recognised both installers and manufacturers for their contributions to the industry.
In some categories there were two winners, with Adam John Smith from Dorset and Graham Taylor from Tunbridge Wells sharing the prize for oil boiler installer of the year.
Similarly Grant UK shared the prize for innovative product of the year for their Combisol hot water system with Kingspan Environmental’s FuelServ pay as you go scheme.
Sponsors of the awards included Grant UK, Clarehill, Riello, Worcester Bosch and Trade Direct.
The event followed the oil and renewable energy show which took place at the same venue on 17 and 18 October.
Visitors to the show were able to see how oil can be integrated with renewables to provide off gas main customers with a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to heat their homes.
