Bitzer uk

BITZER UK is once again pleased to support the ACR News Awards, which has become established as one of the highlights of the industry’s calendar.

It puts a much-needed focus on excellence, in terms of both technology and customer service, values that reflect our own priorities as a company.

One of the great things about the awards is that it brings together all sides of the industry, manufacturers, distributors, contractors and end users, to applaud and celebrate the industry’s achievements.

We are particularly proud that the event honours Alan Moor through the award established in his name. For those who never knew him, Alan was a former BITZER UK managing director who contributed much to the industry through his work and personal example, and is fondly remembered by his colleagues and many friends.

In providing a national stage to showcase the best the industry has to offer, the event highlights examples of good practice that will hopefully inspire others – and in particular the next generation of engineers and designers on whom the future of the industry depends.

The event is not only a focus for outstanding work, it offers a great opportunity to get together informally with colleagues and customers for what is always a relaxing and entertaining evening, professionally organised by the dedicated ACR News team.

I wish all those entering every success, and look forward to another enjoyable and stimulating evening in London on 22 January 2020.”
