The H&V News Awards held its annual event on November 23rd at the London Hilton Metropole. Known as the Oscars of HVAC, the awards recognised outstanding achievements across the HVAC supply chain, honouring manufacturers, contractors, consultants, installers, and their customers.

This year marked a significant milestone for Axis, as we entered the H&V Awards for the first time. Among the standout individuals shortlisted was Joel Wynter, our apprentice gas engineer, nominated for the title of Apprentice of the Year.

Joel’s journey through the apprenticeship programme at Axis was highlighted by his dedication and commitment to personal growth. Despite stiff competition, Joel secured an impressive second place, a remarkable achievement for both him and Axis.

Alan Noble, M&E Director, expressing pride in Joel’s accomplishment, referred to the H&V News Awards as the most prestigious event in the Heating Calendar annually. He said, ‘Joel came 2nd which we are all very proud, but in my view and the rest of Axis who know Joel he is the Winner, such a great person, very approachable, helpful and great mentor for the future of Axis Apprentices. Well Done, Joel!’

In response to his achievement, Joel expressed gratitude for the opportunities provided by Axis, stating, “I’m very lucky to have been shortlisted for such an award, and to make it this far is still a pinch on the arm moment for me, one that will stay with me for a long time and be highly cherishedI would like to thank axis and my colleagues for helping me on my journey and for all the supporting kind messages it means a lot

Joel also highlighted the significance of being acknowledged as a valuable mentor for both apprentices and older colleagues, emphasizing the often-overlooked importance of apprentices in the workforce.
