George Boyd Announces Sponsorship for Industry Awards

George Boyd St Edmonds

George Boyd, the UK’s leading architectural ironmongery expert, has further its commitment to recognising excellence in the field of architectural ironmongery by announcing its co-sponsorship for this year’s Guild of Architectural Ironmongery (GAI) Awards.

The awards, which celebrate the rising stars and exceptional achievers in the field, are handed down by the Guild to members that have passed the prestigious GAI diploma and showcased their skills across the past year. 

2022 also marks the first year that the awards recognition will stretch into the wider industry, with the launch of the GAI Community Awards. The new category is being held to celebrate and raise the profile of exceptional commitment, innovation, customer focus, leadership and achievement throughout the sector. 

Tommy Geddes, Commercial Director for George Boyd, commented: “As the UK’s leading architectural ironmongery experts and retailers, it feels like a totally natural fit for us to sponsor these awards that recognise excellence in our industry.

“The sector as a whole has undergone major changes and advancements over the past few years. Architectural Ironmongery has become a vital part of the overall civil engineering mix in the years following the tragedy of Grenfell, and we’re proud to see the industry continuing to recognise the achievements of those who will help to make buildings safer in the years ahead.”

The awards will be held on November 17th at London’s prestigious Oval cricket ground, with both the GAI and GAI Community awards being presented over the day.

“We’re always looking for the next generation of talent that can come into the industry and make a real difference”Tommy continued. “These awards are more than just a recognition of success. They form part of a considered blueprint for excellence across our sector, something that forms the foundation for the continued growth of both our industry and the wider construction sector as a whole.”
