AEMT Sandbox - Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades

26 July 2022
Awards Entry Deadline Fast Approaching
Time is running out to prepare and submit nominations for the 2022 AEMT Awards Programme. With the final entry date set as 5.00 pm on Friday, 9 September, the AEMT again looks forward to recognising and rewarding business and professional excellence across the electrical and mechanical repair sector.

Building on its past successes, the fifth outing of this sector-specific awards scheme will culminate in a gala presentation ceremony to be held on the evening of Thursday, 17 November, at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel in Coventry. 

This venue will also host the supporting AEMT Conference throughout the day. The full programme is currently being finalised, but its focus will be on providing AEMT members with help and guidance on a range of topics of primary interest to the development of their businesses. Staff recruitment, development and retention, the adoption of smart technologies, the commercial value associated with circular economy and sustainability initiatives, and the support networks that can be accessed by those operating in the sector will all be featured. The speakers will share their knowledge and expertise in a series of talks and presentations designed to be of tangible value and relevance to all those companies operating across the engineering service and maintenance arena.


Operated by the AEMT and produced by Touchwave Media, the awards programme will again acknowledge the skill, effort, and dedication of the people and businesses serving this important industry sector. With sponsorship provided by a host of leading industry names, including ABB, Drives & Controls, EMIR Software, Fanuc UK, Menzel, Plant & Works Engineering and Preformed Windings, well-deserved industrywide recognition will be given to those businesses which are excelling in their commercial endeavours.


The seven categories that make up the 2022 awards programme are:

• Product of the Year – sponsored by Plant & Works Engineering

• Project of the Year – sponsored by EMIR Software

• Service Centre of the Year – sponsored by ABB

• Supplier of the Year – sponsored by Drives & Controls

• Contribution to Skills & Training Award – sponsorship available

• Rising Star Award – sponsored by Fanuc UK

• Diversity in Engineering Award – sponsored by Preformed Windings

• Lifetime Achievement Award – sponsored by AEMT


Entries are 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 nominate others they believe merit recognition. The online entry process is quite straightforward, and anyone wishing to play their part in highlighting engineering excellence should visit the AEMT Awards website – 


The closing date for all entries is 5.00 pm on Friday, 9 September 2022, so those wanting industry-wide recognition for a job well done, be it for product innovation or project management, application knowledge, or service and repair, should be making a note of this key date.

It is free to enter the awards, but the promotional value associated with being selected as a finalist is worth many hundreds of pounds. For those individuals and companies fortunate enough to be announced as one of the seven winners during the presentation ceremony, the promotional benefit is even greater.

As we hurtle towards the end of another turbulent year, energy costs and the Chancellor’s new ‘mini-budget’ are at the forefront of our minds this quarter. The repair and maintenance industry is perfectly positioned to help navigate the energy crisis. Meanwhile, there may be some benefits to take from the mini-budget, too, although we are yet to see what the full plan is.
