2 Years Running! CDR Electrical Wholesalers announced as finalist for Electrical Wholesaler of the Year 2013

September 26, 2012

We are proud to announce that CDR Electrical Wholesalers have been announced, again, as a finalist for the Electrical Wholesaler of the Year award in the Electrical Industry Awards 2013. The yearly competition, run by the Electrical Times, will take place on Thursday 24 October 2013. The winners will be announced at a special event at The Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, London.

After almost six years of being in business, this will be our second year entering the competition. We have all worked tremendously hard over the last couple of years to get to where we are today and we are thrilled that we have managed to get through to the final stages of this competition.

The editor of Electrical Times, Rodney Jack, has said “My thanks to all those who entered. My special thanks to our judges who, as per every year, put in a lot of effort, let alone their own time, to mark the entries with integrity. Once again, the quality and diversity of companies that have submitted entries to the Electrical Industry Awards has been outstanding.

“Each year, we get another snap-shot of the wealth of talent operating within the electrical trade. The fact that we have received a record number of entries bodes well for the trade, with plenty of businesses wanting to promote the great work they are undertaking. Reassuringly for the industry at large, there is a wide range of sectors listed as finalists, demonstrating the electrical industry’s capacity to innovate.

‪“When Electrical Times launched these awards, we set out to show just how much good work is being done in the electrical space, and, to match that, we wanted these awards to be thorough, fair and, above all, independent. These awards really set the gold standard and our awards ceremony will certainly be a night to remember.”‬‬

We want to take a brief moment here to just say thank you to all of our customers that have persisted with us – both new customers and ones that have been with us since the beginning. We hope that we can carry on working with you all, building our customer base further and continuing to improve on our products and services.
