Amanda said that the FDS team wanted to thank those who entered and said the standard of excellence reinforced why FDS is such a prominent name in a competitive market.

“We heard that our distributors wanted to celebrate our success and so we worked together to create the Shed of the Year Awards.

“By celebrating who we are and who we want to be in the future at the Awards Night, sets us up nicely as we transition into a new chapter for FDS.

“It’s clear there is an exciting future ahead for FDS, and we’re so proud to have such innovation, creativity and incredible standards, which have set the bar for others to follow,” she said.

The next FDS Shed of the Year Awards will be held again at the FDS Conference and Gala Dinner in 2021.
