Another award for the trophy cabinet

Our directors TJ Duncan-Moir and John Hamnett were on hand to collect another award for #teamA1 – this one was at the Midlands Family Business Awards.

We picked up another Highly Commended award in the Manufacturing Excellence category for the second year running.

The awards ceremony, held in the new Velodrome in Derby Arena, was organised by Nottingham-based The Wilson Organisation to shine a spotlight on the successes of family businesses.

TJ and John were delighted to accept the award on behalf of all the staff who work at A1 – a lot of whom are based at our factory in departments including Manufacturing, Engineering, Estimating, Accounts and Technical. They also include our 18 Installation Teams and of course all our Regional Sales Teams.

TJ said that A1 is almost unique in this day and age, as it is a family business that has grown to become a UK market leader – but still retains a family feel, despite having a team of nearly 150 people.

“A1 is a family business that employs generations of local families who all share the same values of excellence, pride, passion and precision to achieve UK market-leading manufacturing excellence,” she said.

John added: “Everyone at A1 shares every award we win because our success is all down to our collective dedication, expertise and sheer hard work, which have ensured that A1 has become the UK centre of excellence in the design, manufacture and installation of commercial and industrial chimney, flue and exhaust systems.
