A Preston electrical firm is celebrating after netting a major prize at top industry awards night.
Lantei Compliance Services triumphed at the Electrical Contractors Association gala dinner and awards in Birmingham.
The firm was crowned Small Contractor of the Year, which is awarded to a contractor with a turnover of less than £5 million who shows exceptional growth and development within the industry.
Established in 2010 Lantei, against all odds has grown to become one of the UK’s main provider of specialist electrical and work place testing services with offices in Preston, Newcastle and London.
Without loans, external finance or any debt, the business has seen tremendous success over the last 12 months culminating in being awarded the silver award from Investors in People in May.
Directors Anthony and Leona Smith interrupted their two week family holiday to fly back to England for the awards for a couple of days on hearing of their ECA nomination, while their parents holidaying with them looked after their children in Turkey.
Anthony said: “It’s still a little surreal. To be recognised for all your hard work is one thing, but to win a national award is more than we ever dreamed of.
“When up against companies who have been around for a lot longer, a commendation would have been tremendous.
“I thank all at Lantei for their hard work and look forward to celebrating with them properly when we return from holiday”
The Electrical Contractors Association is the largest electrical association of its kind in the United Kingdom .
