On Thursday 1st November WD-40 were thrilled to be invited to the On The Tools Awards 2018, sponsoring the hotly contested Carpenter of the Year Award, recognising the UK’s best carpenter.
On The Tools is the largest online construction community in the UK, and their annual awards celebrate construction works, subcontractors, construction companies, manufacturers and tradesmen from across the UK. Their esteemed panel of judges is made up of renowned experts in the industry, and it was their unenviable task to review all the entries and shortlist the very best candidates for each category.
The lavish gala dinner and awards ceremony was held at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham, and was a celebration of all things construction-related, with lashings of class, glamour, and a touch of tongue-in-cheek humour to boot! In a room full of the nation’s best and brightest industry professionals, the WD-40 contingent were in great company, and it was a fabulous opportunity to rub shoulders with our loyal customer base and share information on our range of Specialist products, which are designed to help trade and construction professionals with those specialist tasks they face every day.
The drinks flowed freely, as did the laughs and the applause! The Carpenter of the Year award had been shortlisted down to two very worthy candidates but was eventually won by Glen Charles from KGS Enterprises Ltd – well done Glen!
