Winners of these two important awards will be, in-part, chosen by an industry voteVoting closes on Friday 30 April 2021, with the announcement of winners taking place during a live ceremony on Thursday 20 May 2021.

The Electrical Wholesaler Awards provides a unique platform for the recognition of excellence and achievement across the electrical wholesale sector and has done so for almost a decade.


Winners are chosen via a two-step process that ensures only the very best pick up a coveted stamp of industry approval. Finalists must first face an online vote by industry professionals, before facing a critique by a  judging panel that comprises individuals with extensive industry knowledge and experience.

Vent-Axia ‘Thrilled’

Jenny Smith, Head of Marketing at Vent-Axia, comments: “It’s great to have recognition for our efforts to support the industry throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and for our work communicating the essential role of ventilation in mitigating virus transmission.

“We’re also thrilled that our new Lo-Carbon Multivent MEV range is on the shortlist in the Best New Product category, highlighting the many benefits it provides to housebuilders and developers, including providing a simple and effective solution to meet the Future Homes Standard in new build properties.”

Vent-Axia has a commitment to improving public health by improving indoor air quality (IAQ) through ventilation. With its COVID-19 Support Campaign, the company sets out to go the extra mile.

The focus on how it could help in the national response against COVID-19, laying out a three-tier plan to help support its customers and the general public, by focussing on Critical Supply, Critical Communication and Critical Technical Advice.


The campaign was influential in helping in the fight against COVID-19, by supplying critical projects; sharing vital ventilation guidance and information; plus offering essential expert advice to customers and businesses. The company led the way in these activities, dominating the share of voice on communications and providing expert advice.

Vent-Axia’s campaign included the critical supply of ventilation to COVID-19 hospital wards and field hospitals including the NHS Nightingale and Rainbow hospitals; critical communications with its #StayHealthy campaign and critical expert advice including its useful guide ‘The Effect of Ventilation on COVID-19’.


In October 2020, Vent-Axia’s COVID-19 Support Campaign received recognition, with the British Chamber of Commerce naming the company a ‘UK Business Hero’. This is part of the Chamber’s campaign to recognise the incredible work UK businesses were undertaking, in the most challenging of years.
