Vent-Axia Named as Double Finalist in Electrical Wholesaler Awards

British ventilation manufacturer Vent-Axia is delighted to announce that it has been nominated in two categories in the prestigious Electrical Wholesaler Awards 2021.

The company’s COVID-19 Support Campaign has been shortlisted for the ‘Industry Initiative Award’ while the Vent-Axia Lo-Carbon Multivent MEV range is a ‘Best New Product’ contender. Winners of these two important awards will be, in-part, decided by an industry vote, with voting taking place at www.electricalwholesalerawards.co.uk. Voting closes on Friday, 30th April 2021 and the winners will be announced during a live ceremony on Thursday, 20th May 2021.

For almost a decade, the Electrical Wholesaler Awards has provided a unique platform for the recognition of excellence and achievement across the electrical wholesale sector. Winners are chosen via a two-step process that ensures only the very best pick up a coveted stamp of industry approval. Finalists must first face an online vote by industry professionals before being critiqued by a specially selected judging panel, comprised of individuals with extensive industry knowledge and experience.

“We are delighted to once again be recognised at these prestigious awards with a double shortlisting”, said Jenny Smith, Head of Marketing at Vent-Axia. “It’s great to be recognised for our efforts to support the industry throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and for our work communicating the essential role of ventilation in mitigating virus transmission. We’re also thrilled that our new Lo-Carbon Multivent MEV range has been shortlisted in the Best New Product category, highlighting the many benefits it provides to housebuilders and developers, including providing a simple and effective solution to meet the Future Homes Standard in new build properties.”

Vent-Axia is committed to improving public health by improving indoor air quality (IAQ) through ventilation. With its COVID-19 Support Campaign the company therefore set out to go the extra mile focusing on how it could help in the national response against COVID-19 laying out a three-tier plan to help support its customers and the general public by focussing on Critical Supply, Critical Communication and Critical Technical Advice.

The campaign helped in the fight against COVID-19 by supplying critical projects; sharing vital ventilation guidance and information; plus offering essential expert advice to customers and businesses. The company led the way in these activities, dominating the share of voice on communications and providing expert advice.

Vent-Axia’s campaign included the critical supply of ventilation to COVID-19 hospital wards and field hospitals including the NHS Nightingale and Rainbow hospitals; critical communications with its #StayHealthy campaign and critical expert advice including its useful guide ‘The Effect of Ventilation on COVID-19’.

In October 2020, Vent-Axia’s COVID-19 Support Campaign was recognised as the British Chamber of Commerce named the company a ‘UK Business Hero’ as part of the Chamber’s campaign to recognise the incredible work UK businesses were undertaking, in the most challenging of years. The company was awarded this prestigious accolade for its valuable work during the pandemic.

Meanwhile, Vent-Axia launched the Multivent MEV family in late 2020. This new range of mechanical extract ventilation (MEV) and decentralised MEV (dMEV) provides a simple and effective solution to help housebuilders meet the Future Homes Standard. The range is the ideal solution for new build residential projects, helping housebuilders meet Dwelling Emission Rates (DER) requirements through its market-leading energy efficiency and IAQ for homeowners.
