AEMT Awards set to return in November

Published:  19 April, 2021

Having been forced to withdraw from staging its annual awards dinner and presentation ceremony last year, due to the ongoing fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, the AEMT is eagerly anticipating its return later this year.

Originally scheduled for its regular slot in November 2020, following hugely successful events in each of the preceding three years, the Gala Awards Ceremony will now take place on the evening of Thursday 18th November 2021, at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel, Coventry. The associated AEMT Conference will also move to this new dateline, and will be staged throughout the day, prior to presentation dinner in the evening. Information on the conference, its programme, and speakers, will be available shortly.

The 2021 AEMT Gala Awards Dinner will once again bring together the electrical and mechanical trades sector in a celebration of business and professional excellence. Recognising and rewarding the achievements of both individuals and companies operating within the repair and maintenance arena, personal endeavour, product innovation, skills training, engineering advancement and commercial acumen will be acknowledged and celebrated.

The awards will again acknowledge the skill, effort and sheer dedication of the people and businesses serving this important sector of industry. With sponsorship provided by a host of leading industry names, including ABB, Drives & Controls, EMIR Software, Fanuc UK, Menzel Motors, Musk Process Services, Plant & Works Engineering, and Wilson Fans, Pumps & Motors Group, well deserved industry-wide recognition will be given to those businesses and individuals that are excelling in their commercial endeavours.

The following seven categories make up the 2020/21 awards programme:

Product of the Year – sponsored by PWE magazine

Service Centre of the Year – sponsored by ABB

Supplier of the Year – sponsored by Drives & Controls

Entries are now being sought for any company, product, application, or individual involved in the supply, installation, service, maintenance and repair of industrial machinery technology such as electric motors, drives, pumps, fans, gearboxes, generators, transformers, switchgear, and ancillary equipment. Individuals can put forward entries for themselves and their own company, or they can nominate others that they know merit recognition. The entry process could not be easier, so anyone wishing to play their part in highlighting engineering excellence should visit the AEMT Awards website – – and complete the simple online entry form.

The closing date for all entries has been set for 5pm on Friday 10th September 2021 and it is free to enter.
