Inverness plumbing, heating and renewable energy firm named Scottish Heating Installer of the Year
An award winning Highland heating, plumbing and renewable energy solutions firm has been crowned the best Heating Installer in Scotland 2017.
The McInnes Group, which is headquartered in Inverness, will now go forward as a finalist for the title of Best Heating Installer in the UK.
The Heating Installer Awards celebrates plumbers and heating installers who deliver excellent customer service on a daily basis, showcasing the superstars of the industry who often go unnoticed.
The award scheme champions installers who go to great lengths to deliver incredible levels of service for their customers, using innovative heating solutions that improve the quality of life of families and businesses across the UK.
Scott Murray, commercial director at the McInnes Group said to be named, as the top heating installer in Scotland was a tremendous accolade.
He added: “Being shortlisted as a finalist in such prestigious awards really makes all the long hours, hard work and dedication worth it. It’s a real boost for the whole team who work so hard.
“To be recognised in this way is a real honour and something that myself and all the team at the McInnes Group are extremely proud of. I would also like to take the opportunity to thank the judges for their hard work and for recognising our work in this way.”
The McInnes Group will now go head-to-head with the other 10 area champions in a public vote to decide who will be crowned the UK’s Number One Heating Installer, which will be announced in May at Installer2017 in Coventry.
The McInnes Group, which was founded by MD Lachlan McInnes in 2011, is an award winning heating, plumbing and renewable energy solutions firm, which incorporates both McInnes Plumbing and Heating and McInnes Renewables.
Lachlan, 30, was recently named winner of the Rising Star category at the Green Energy Awards. He carved out his business empire after been made redundant from his apprenticeship in 2011. He paid to complete his own apprenticeship and founded McInnes Plumbing and Heating Ltd.

It now employs a total of 16 staff and four apprentices, and the business has experienced huge growth in last 12 months, with turnover now exceeding a seven-figure sum.
Lachlan McInnes said: “It’s fantastic to learn we have been named the Best Heating Installer in Scotland and also to learn that we are now in the running for the UK wide award.
