Two more awards for our trophy cabinet

A1 Flues has picked up two awards at the Midlands Family Business Awards.

We picked up a Highly Commended for Manufacturing Excellence, and our director TJ Duncan-Moir also scooped a Highly Commended for Director of the Year.

The awards ceremony – organised by Nottingham-based The Wilson Organisation to celebrate the successes of family businesses – was held in the Great Hall at the University of Birmingham, and TJ and fellow director John Hamnett were on hand to collect the awards.

TJ and John were delighted to accept the awards on behalf of the 140 staff who work at A1 – which includes all the design and manufacturing teams at our factory in Ollerton and our sales, engineering and installation teams based around the UK.

John said: “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.”

TJ 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.”

The year 2016 has been very good for us, and it got off to a flying start after we announced that we had secured the contract with Skanska, the main contractor for the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station, to supply flue systems for one of the most iconic buildings in the UK.

We have also completed a range of projects including Greenwich Wharf, Hendon Waterside and London City Island.

This year, the export side of our business has started taking off, and we recently announced a contract to supply for the world’s largest indoor theme park in Dubai.
