Kitchen appliance supplier Hoover Candy has been named the Sirius Manufacturer of the Year for the fifth time in seven years at The Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel and Country Club.

Judged and voted for by Sirius members, brands are scored on a range of criteria, including sales team and head office support, service, products, innovation and quality.

Hoover also won the award for Stand at the Year at the Sirius trade show.

Steve Macdonald, business director (freestanding appliances) at Hoover Candy UK, said: “Winning this award for a fifth time is truly a testament to all the hard work that everyone from across the whole group has put into delivering gold-standard service day in, day out.

“Caring for our customers, and in turn, their customers, has always been a priority which is why winning the accolade this year is so important to us.

“It’s helped ensure that we’re on the right track, showing the right level of care to our trusted trade partners.”

He continued: “The elements of style, care and innovation in our product range has really shone in the last 12 months, but it’s recognition like this that means we’re showing these important factors in other areas, such as service and support.”

Macdonald concluded: “We’re looking forward to the year ahead as we further establish our position as the leader in connected appliances, following the expansion of our smart product offering, with a number of exciting new lines.”

This comes in the wake of Hoover Candy’s decision earlier in the year to invest €15m into its smart appliance production.
