Matt Fletcher, Managing Director of Fletcher Moorland added; “We're supporting the AEMT Awards, because it's a great way to bring people together. It highlights the industry by showing off the best of the best."

Speaking of TEC Motors’ engagement with the awards, UK Sales Manager, Martin Knott said; “We are still relatively new to the industry and class ourselves as a rising star. We are happy to align ourselves with the need to get more young people into the industry and fill the knowledge gap among our customers.”

Ian Atkinson, Publishing Director of Plant & Works Engineering adds; “With the ongoing necessity for businesses to adopt better maintenance practices to take advantage of the onset of the smart manufacturing era, the inaugural AEMT Awards will undoubtedly help raise the profile for this critical sector and give much needed foresight and awareness of the opportunities and solutions available. As a representative of the UK B2B technical trade media in general, we are delighted to be supporting the Awards.”

Gary Downes, Managing Director of Solutions in IT and President of the AEMT, underpinned these views; “We thought it would be good to put something back, and help service engineers promote their services. Personal endeavour, technical innovation, engineering advancement and commercial acumen will all be acknowledged and celebrated through this new awards programme”.
