​Do you know an engineer who has given a lifetime of service to the industry?

The Institute of Refrigeration's Service Engineers Section is seeking nominations for its Lifetime Achievement Award, with a deadline of 8 November.
The award recognises an outstanding engineer who has spent a whole lifetime in the field as a hands-on service, maintenance, installation or commissioning engineer. The award is aimed at the army of unsung heroes of the industry who show dedication to customers and clients in keeping systems running efficiently year after year.

Past winners of the award have shown that, in addition to performing their day-to-day job responsibilities effectively, they have been willing to take on extra roles such as mentoring young technicians, giving toolbox talks to branches or colleges, or sharing their vast accumulated knowledge through internal bulletins or trade press articles.

If you or your company employs someone who has really made a difference through their work and is still working in a service or maintenance role, contact the IOR. They could win a cash prize of £400, a commemorative beer tankard and an invitation to meet the industry at the IOR Annual Dinner on 22 February in London.
