Plumbing association opens nominations for 20th annual plumbing and gas industry awards
The 20th annual plumbing and gas industry awards will be held on Friday 19 July 2019. The awards recognise achievements in industry leaders and mentors, apprentices, gas installation projects, domestic and residential work and women in the industry among others.
Executive director of Master Plumber’s Association of Queensland (MPAQ) Penny Cornah says it is important to recognise leading professionals and achievements within the industry.
“Plumbing is a lifesaving industry and by acknowledging the exceptional work of everyone who contributes to it, we are able to celebrate the vital work they do day to day,” she says.
Beavis and Bartels who won three awards in 2018 spoke about how motivational and uplifting receiving one of these awards really is.
Beavis and Bartels hydraulic engineer Matthew Ryan said, “If you get the chance to nominate your company or business for an award I would definitely recommend it, receiving an award in front of your peers at an industry night is definitely a moment you will not forget.”
This year a number of new categories have been added to the program recognising passive fire projects, business excellence and an individual plumber, drainer or gas fitter.
Penny stated that “these new awards allow us to highlight the comprehensive skills and talents in our industry that were not being recognised previously.”
