Sontay celebrates after picking up two accolades at HVR Awards 2015


Sontay is delighted to be Highly Commended in the Commercial/Industrial Heating Product of the Year and Sustainable Product of the Year category at the HVR Awards 2015 for its SonNet solution. As well as this, Joanne Stopps, Sontay’s sales support advisor, was also fortunate enough to have been nominated for the Customer Service Person Award.


The awards, which took place at the Chelsea Harbour Hotel in London on 15 October 2015, celebrate innovative achievements within the heating, ventilating and building services industries. They aim to recognise excellence in each individual field, outstanding technology and exceptional customer service. This year, the eight categories ranged from Contractor of the Year to Customer Service Person of the Year. Each category was scrutinised by judges BSRIA principal research engineer,  Dr Arnold Teekaram,  ICOM director, Ross Anderson, FETA’s commercial manager Martyn Cooper and finally, Jack McDavid, who is head of communications, public affairs and B&ES.
