WATTLE Grove business owner Thomas Crook has combined his creative talent with his entrepreneurial drive and plumbing expertise to take out an award at the 2016 Master Plumbers & Gasfitters Association of WA Awards for Excellence Gala on December 3.
Mr Crook won the 2016 vehicle branding award and was highly commended for his logo and design.
The judges said the stylish yet simplistic design along with the incorporation of the three elements set it above the other entries.
A former Group Training plumbing apprentice of the year in 2009 and a runner up in the 2010 MPA plumbing apprentice of the year this year he made the top four in the plumber of the year award.
With his business Elemental Plumbing & Gas Mr Crook sets high standards and commits to quality workmanship, integrity, honesty and open communication with clients.
He is happy to have some recognition for the high level of work he aims to deliver to residents in the Perth Hills.
“I feel honoured to receive this award and hope to continue to provide our community with the honest and safe delivery of plumbing work as it is such a critical health and sanitation service” he said.
He said he believed there were more entries this year in the category he won than in previous years so that made the award even more special for him.
