The GAI Community Awards were launched in 2022 to raise the profile of exceptional commitment, innovation, customer focus, leadership and achievement throughout the architectural ironmongery industry.
GAI chief executive and chair of the judging panel Simon Forrester said: “The Guild supports and promotes the architectural ironmongery sector by focusing on the triple pillars of technical, education and community excellence.”
Borg Locks have been shortlisted for the Company Innovation Award; an award for companies which have demonstrated they are innovating through improved processes and/or products, and have demonstrated how those improvements have made a difference to them, their customers or wider society.
John Hyslop, Managing Director of Borg Locks said:
“As a small independent company we are honoured and delighted to have been shortlisted for an award by such a prestigious and highly regarded organisation like the GAI.
“This nomination is especially welcomed as Borg Locks celebrates 25 years in the ironmongery industry in 2022.
“We wish everyone in the category the very best of luck.”
The winner in each shortlisted category will be announced at the GAI Education Awards in London on Thursday 17 November, along with the winners of the Leadership Award and GAI Fellowship Award.
Simon Forrester added: “The judges were blown away by the quality of entries, and particularly pleased at the breadth of companies, roles and qualities represented. We are looking forward hugely to celebrating with the winners of the inaugural GAI Community Awards at the ceremony at The Kia Oval on Thursday 17 November.”
