Installers who purchased a Grant Vortex oil-fired boiler from Williams & Co between 1st September and 18th December 2015 were invited to enter a draw to be in with the chance of winning some fabulous prizes, including a once in a lifetime trip. With the turn of the New Year, the winners were drawn and Lee Owen from Aqua Plumbing Services in Hamstreet, Kent, was announced as the winner of the Las Vegas trip. Lee will be heading to “Sin City” with one other where they will be staying in a hotel on the main Vegas strip, will have $1,000 to spend and a limousine to transport them around.

Grant UK and Williams & Co decided to join forces and run a competition to reward the hard working engineers who purchase and fit Vortex boilers. These market leading appliances have some of the highest efficiencies, far exceeding UK and European Standards. And 2016 will see some exciting new additions joining the Vortex range reaffirming Grant’s position as a leading innovator and manufacturer of heating appliances.

Not content with just offering installers one amazing prize, this competition had an iPad Air available for the installer drawn as the runner-up. A further ten installers who entered the competition were also not left empty handed, each winning a Grant Vortex Mag One magnetic filter.

Grant UK and Williams & Co Ltd congratulate all of the winners in this competition. No doubt Lee Owen will enjoy a fantastic trip in Las Vegas and, as the saying goes, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!”
