Chesterfield's Recon Electrical has triumphed in the national 2014 Electrical Industry awards, putting the business on track to expand further.
Once again the Sheepbridge-based local independent electrical wholesaler beat off stiff competition from a number of national and international chains to win two awards at the prestigious black tie event - UK Electrical Wholesaler of the Year and Electrical App of the Year.
The Recon Electrical phone App is believed to be the first of its kind in the electrical industry. It was developed for Recon's customers earlier this year to provide then with an on-the-go source of information, including a technical library and quick quote feature, which can be accessed via their smart phone.
Held in London the annual event, which is organised by Electrical Times, is the trade's longest running and most respected awards championing excellence. The awards not only encourage and celebrate innovation, but also rewards the contribution of individuals and teams across the electrical trade.
The Electrical Industry Awards are the second that Recon Electrical has been recognised in during 2014. Earlier this year the business was highly commended in two categories at the Electrical Wholesaler Awards 2014 - Best Individual Wholesaler Branch and Best Electrical Wholesaler with 10 and Under Branches categories.
Recon Electrical's Managing Director Andy Salvin, said "The Electrical Industry Awards win has topped off a brilliant year for the business. The awards pay tribute to our focus on customer satisfaction by having the right, skilled and knowledgeable staff.
"In the near future we are looking to expand on what we have in Chesterfield and are looking for larger premises. Long term, we are looking at opening other branches and increasing the team."
