Published:  21 October, 2011

BIRMINGHAM: Baxi has been named Green Manufacturer of the Year at the InstallerLive Awards. 

The award ceremony, hosted by comedian Rufus Hound, was the climax of the InstallerLive Exhibition at the NEC, and was attended by hundreds of heating and plumbing industry professionals.

Graham Parkes, Low Carbon Technologies head of sales, was presented with the trophy by Kelvin Stevens, managing director of category sponsor, Adey.

“Winning the Green Award is a great accolade,” said Mr Parkes, “especially as the panel of judges are all prominent figures in the industry or former winners.

“At Baxi we pride ourselves on our low carbon portfolio and the support and training we offer. We are particularly proud of Baxi Ecogen, and of being the first manufacturer to launch a domestic micro-CHP appliance to the UK market.

“I have received this award on behalf of the fantastic team that work tirelessly behind the scenes to enable us to deliver award-winning products and customer support.”

The judges said: “The combination of heating and generating power from one unit is an exciting prospect and [Baxi] have started this very difficult path and are seeing great results.”

Baxi was also a finalist in the Heating Manufacturer of the Year category.
