Organised by Datateam Business Media, the publisher of ACR News Magazine, the ACR News Awards is designed to celebrate innovation in the air conditioning and refrigeration sector, rewarding companies that demonstrate excellence in the way they operate or in what they produce; in addition to the individuals who make this industry great.
The 2017 event had three new categories in the line-up: Unsung Hero of the Year and Service Engineer of the Year, which were voted for by members of the industry and Apprentice of the Year, which was judged by an expert panel.
