A STIRLING electrical firm is hoping to scoop accolades in a top industry awards scheme next month with two nominations.

Moray Robertson Electrical Services (MRES) has been nominated for Best Medium Sized Contractor and Best Visual Promotion by trade body SELECT.

The winners will be revealed at a ceremony and gala dinner in Glasgow next month.

Moray Robertson, MRES managing director, was delighted to be shortlisted and will be facing fierce competition from Kenneth Ferguson Electrical Contractor in Oban, KF Watson in Aberdeen and Electrical Solutions (UK) from Edinburgh in the former category.

He said: “We’re very proud to be named finalists by our industry body and this is the first time we’ve been nominated for a business award.

“Our firm is certainly going from strength to strength and I think a lot of that is down to the fact we focus on honesty and transparency and pride ourselves on delivering a quality service.”

The Best Medium Sized Contractor award is for businesses who can demonstrate they are held in high regard by their customers, have a clear business plan along with an impressive sales and marketing strategy.

The nomination for Best Visual Promotion came thanks to the firm’s eye-catching vans and striking logo.

In this second category, the Stirling company is up against Annan firm Select Electrical & Mechanical Services, Servest Arthur McKay based in Bonnyrigg and Edinburgh’s Ideal Electrical Solutions (UK).

The managing director added: “Practically everyone we meet mentions how striking and unusual our vans and logo are.

“We get a fantastic response from the public as the team and I go about our work across Scotland and further afield.”
