In March, Travis Perkins launched the first ever Travis Perkins Innovation Awards (TPIA) and we are so excited to tell you that the results are in!
We were overwhelmed with the quality and quantity of responses both from internal and external applicants. With 109 fantastic applications it was down to our panel of 39 industry expert judges (including the BRE) to choose their favourite ideas. We received some excellent feedback on the worthy winners and they scored very highly across a set of tough criteria.
From plumbing and heating solutions to gadgets aiming to save the tradesman time, we saw a real host of great inventions, which could be hugely successful across our industry.
Congratulations to the winners – we look forward to working with you in the next stages of your journey and helping you raise the profile of your innovations!
