Fernox and Expert Trades have been shortlisted in the Collaboration of the Year category for the H&V News Awards 2018. The market leading chemical water treatment and filter manufacturer, Fernox, announced the partnership last year, and now works alongside the online trade platform to bridge the gap between manufacturer and tradesman – as well as developing further relationships within the HVAC industry.
The annual H&V News Awards is a celebration of market excellence and best practice, bringing together the complete HVAC and building services supply chain to commend the most recent pioneering developments within the industry.
Recognising the innovative collaboration between manufacturer and online resource, H&V News Awards judges have shortlisted the ongoing partnership between Fernox and Expert Trades for this year’s Collaboration of the Year award.
As well as providing a resource to communicate the latest company and product news as well as receive feedback through its popular, peer-reviewed product page, Tool Talk, the partnership enables Fernox to engage actively with the community of heating installers using Expert Trades.
Ernie McDonald, Fernox General Manager explained,
“Expert Trades is an innovative and valuable resource for both installers and householders, and as a market leading manufacturer – it provides an additional platform for us to reach and engage the community in open conversations on issues that matter to them.”
Through the Expert Trades dashboard and app, along with opportunities to conduct focus groups with installers to gauge opinion on key industry issues, teaming up with Expert Trades has allowed Fernox to conduct open and honest dialogue with heating installers.
Francine Wickham, Global Marketing Director at Fernox said,
“With collaboration becoming increasingly common in the HVAC and building services market, we are excited to have been shortlisted for this award. The H&V News Awards is a key industry event and being named as a finalist celebrates our continued commitment to market excellence. After a successful launch of the partnership, we are looking forward to our continued work with Expert Trades.”
