Published:  16 October, 2009

WORCESTER: Worcester, Bosch Group has won the Marketing Campaign of the Year prize at the 2009 OFTEC Awards held at the City West Hotel in Dublin.

The accolade was won for Worcester’s Energy House campaign which provides an interactive online comparison tool featuring ‘real-life’ homes of varying sizes and number of occupants, allowing consumers to see what type of high efficiency or renewable heating technology solutions would be best suited to meet their requirements.

Martyn Bridges, Worcester’s director of marketing and technical support collected the award from the category sponsor Plumbfix as the boiler manufacturer beat off stiff competition from runner’s up Kingspan Environmental and Trianco Heating Products.

Mr Bridges said: “We’re extremely pleased to have won this award. We are very proud of our energy house campaign which has proved to be a valuable resource for thousands of consumers. The Worcester energy house that we own in Bilford Rd has not only received thousands of website visits, it has also had hundreds of personal visits from our customers after they have attended our factory tour."
