If you've been following the progress of the Welding World Awards then you’ll understand why there are still a lot of smiling faces around the Foster Industrial offices this week!

Last week, we headed to Birmingham and the glittering Welding World Awards ceremony at the Hilton Metropole, where we were delighted to pick up the award for Best Welding Distributor from The Right Honourable Michael Portillo.
Awarded to the firm that best showed good product knowledge and excellent customer service, the winner was chosen by a panel of industry experts including President of the Association of Welding Distributors (AWD), John Wilkinson OBE, and Adrian Hawkins, Managing Director of Weldability-Sif.
In addition to the award win, we were also named as finalists in two other categories, Best Gas Agent
and Best E-Commerce Website Organisation. All of which has combined to make us very happy! Putting the business up for scrutiny by both our peers and customers was a big decision for us but the results have shown that our confidence in our products and services is not misplaced.
Adrian Hawkins, one of the award judges, commented: “Foster Industrial has established a 130 year history and their longevity is a lasting testimony to the level of service and quality of products they provide to their customers. They are an entirely appropriate selection for the winner of the "Best Welding Distributor" category awarded by Welding World Awards in 2016. We are delighted that Foster alongside many others have supported our inaugural Welding World Awards programme and we congratulate them for their success in winning this award.”
It’s a huge testament to the commitment of the whole Foster team and makes the work that everyone has done over the last year to build the business and its presence in the region all the more worthwhile.
Now we’ve just got to decide where to put our award!
