Once again the search is on to reward excellence in oil heating and cooking. But this year, the Oil Firing Technical Association (OFTEC) has added new categories to itís prestigious Awards for Excellence.
New for 2008, OFTEC is looking for the most green initiative of the year. The category is open to entries from OFTEC member companies who have come up with environmentally friendly products or services for the oil heating and cooking industry.
OFTEC Director General, Jeremy Hawksley, said Ďwe feel itís time for a change, and in particular the green initiative award reflects the move towards more environmentally friendly technologies such as the use of liquid biofuels for home heating.í
There are also two new awards for marketing campaign and company of the year. And for the first time OFTEC members will be able to sponsor individual award categories.
Other categories include oil tank installer, oil boiler installer, oil cooker/stove installer, service/commissioning engineer, and trainee of the year. All of which are open to OFTEC registered technicians who will have a chance to win a cheque for £500. There is also a category for training centres and one for oil distributors.
