The Britain’s Top Tradesperson 2018 competition has now launched, inviting builders, electricians, carpenters and plumbers in Dumbarton to be recognised for the great work that they do.

The annual competition, organised by Screwfix and supported by Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, aims to highlight and recognise the great work tradespeople do in the region.

And this year’s winner will also bag a brand new Mitsubishi L200 Warrior pick-up truck worth £33,000.

Screwfix, which has a store in Dumbarton, will select the best tradespeople to face-off in a regional heat, and from there, 10 finalists from across the UK will head to Wembley Stadium for the national final in July, where they will compete in front of an esteemed judging panel consisting of industry experts.

Caroline Welsh, Director of Brand and Marketing at Screwfix, said: “The award is only given to top tradespeople who can demonstrate that they go above and beyond in their trade.

“It’s for those who can show how they are adapting to change in the industry, have a positive impact on their community, invest in the future of the trade or show true professionalism in every job they complete.

“This is our biggest competition of the year, designed to showcase the fantastic tradespeople in the industry.”

Last year’s winner, Lluis Dalmau, owner of LCD Heating and Gas Services, says his customer base has “grown more than he could ever imagine” thanks to taking the coveted title.

Entries are open until 3 June 2018, with regional finalists selected and competing later that month. In July the finalists will compete at the national finale, with the overall winner being named Britain’s Top Tradesperson 2018.
