We attended the NDA national awards last Thursday, where there was approximately 1800 people in attendance from across the nuclear estate and their supply chain, which consisted of many major contractors in the UK.
Thomas Grahams were nominated for the SME award going the extra mile, which we didn’t win. When the winners were mentioned with their multi-million pound savings and engineering systems that they had put in place, we were happy that we had been nominated!
At the end of the ceremony it was then announced that their most prestigious award was the minister award, presented by the Government Minister Rh Hon Baroness Verma, which we did win!
Later the Baroness came to visit our stand in which she spent more time one of our Key Accounts Managers, Karl Drake, than with than any other exhibitor. She was very impressed that such a young person had been involved and Karl took the time to explain our apprenticeship scheme.
The comments that we received from our customers on the day was a real testament to the relationship they have with Thomas Grahams.
Ron Gorham, who heads the NDA/SME agenda said that he was chuffed that we had won and fully deserved it.
