STA Named Supplier of the Year by ukactive

At the 2019 annual ukactive awards STA scooped the coveted title of Supplier of the Year.

ukactive’s annual awards are the most prestigious within the physical activity sector and this year was the biggest to date, covering the entire sports and physical activity landscape—throughout the public, private and third sectors. The awards recognise facilities, suppliers, operators, educational institutes, health practitioners and large corporations that have demonstrated exceptional standards in driving forward the physical activity agenda.

With 23 diverse award categories in total this year, the 2019 Supplier of the Year was one of the most hotly contested, with eight contenders all vying for the title.

On receiving the award, Dave Candler, STA’s CEO, said he was unbelievably honoured and proud. He said: This award is for the team in recognition of all their hard work and commitment in supplying and delivering the highest standards of swimming teaching, lifesaving, first aid and pool plant training.

At STA, we pride ourselves on having a friendly, flexible and proactive approach to supporting all of our customers, large and small—it is a very important component of our service so for us to win Supplier of the Year is a huge accolade. Thank you ukactive and congratulations to all the winners and finalists, said Dave.

STA, alongside its awarding organisation, Safety Training Awards, was also named as a finalist in ukactive’s 2019 Activation of the Year and Marketing Campaign of the Year awards categories.

ukactive announced all the winners at a glittering awards ceremony during Active Uprising, which was held in Manchester on 6th June 2019.
