OMEGA Solutions – Highly Commended!

OMEGA are delighted to announce that we were highly commended in the Training Initiative of the Year category, sponsored by Zehnder Group UK Ltd, at this year’s BESA Group Awards at the Novotel London West Hotel!

The judges had the following to say about our submission:

·        Very good submission and the overall aim is put very well. The overarching principle of putting back experience and understanding into the industry is good, and the practical experience of the current team is key to that.

·        A good training provision that blends technical skills and knowledge with leadership, which is ideally pitched training for their target audience. This really is a different approach and has to be commended.

Congratulations to the winners, F P Hurley & Sons Ltd, who richly deserved the award.

Our UK Technical Manager, Chris Griffiths M.Inst.R and Technical Director, Nabil Cook CEng MEng (Hons), were in attendance and thoroughly enjoyed the event and the excellent company present at our table.
