A ‘smart’ move from EnviroVent Trade's Scott Coppola03/09/2014

Electrical Distributor Scott Coppola

Edinburgh based electrical distributor, Scott Coppola Ltd, has been named the Northern winner of EnviroVent Trade’s Summer Sport Competition. The competition, which ran throughout this year’s world cup in Brazil, gave electrical wholesalers across both the North and South of the country a chance to flex their sales muscles and win a 60 inch HD Samsung Smart TV. The best overall performing team would be the branch which generated the highest order value in EnviroVent sales.

Branch manager, Darren Coppola, was presented with the HD Samsung TV by EnviroVent’s regional distribution manager for the North, Gordon Pugh, and, local area sales manager, Rob McIntyre.

He said: “Since we started trading with EnviroVent back in 2005, we have seen a rise in the demand for the EnviroVent Filterless Fan thanks to local authorities and likeminded housing associations looking for a long-term, cost effective and energy efficient solution for their ventilation requirements. Working in partnership with the team at EnviroVent, we’ve seen the brand grow year on year, ultimately, it’s the people that make this work for EnviroVent and Scott Coppola.”

Established in 1982, Scott Coppola Ltd is all about people, with the business placing a strong emphasis on teamwork and building up strong relationships with customers and suppliers. In line with Scott Coppola’s focus on people, the company, who currently employs 35 people, including EDA (Electrical Distributors Association) apprentices, has donated the TV to the Citadel Youth Centre in Leith. The Citadel Youth Centre is a voluntary organisation which works alongside children and young people offering a wide range of activities through a community-based approach.

Willy Barr, manager of the Citadel Youth Centre said: “We are absolutely delighted with what the staff team at Scott Coppola have decided to do with their prize – it came as a total surprise when Darren Coppola contacted me earlier this week and arranged to visit to give us the news. We were chuffed!”

He added: “Everyone who comes into the Citadel will benefit from this amazing donation, we plan to use it for various activities such as showing films, playing computer games and for presentations when we run our volunteer training.”

In addition, each week the Citadel opens the doors of its ‘ intergenerational cafe’, known locally as the New Spin Cafe, to many local pensioners as well as a group for young mums under 21 years and their babies, both will benefit from the TV donated by Scott Coppola.
