The Best at Clearing Blocked Drains – Engineer of the Year – Metro Rod Manchester

 Metro Rod Manchester’s very own Nick Broadbent picked up this year’s Engineer of the Year award at the Metro Rod annual conference. Held at Celtic Manor in Newport, 41 regional depots from across the UK gathered for the flagship event, to celebrate the success and achievements of the network, both individually and as a whole, as well as to discuss the exciting developments and growth prospects moving forward.


Not a fan of text-heavy content? Why not see how Metro Rod Manchester and Macclesfield can help with your blocked drains here by watching this short animated video.


Nick’s award comes off the back of his extreme attention to detail and professionalism when to comes to clearing blocked drains, as well as providing the rest of our full range our drainage solutions to the homes and businesses of Manchester, Stockport, Macclesfield and surrounding areas in Cheshire.

When it comes to clearing your blocked drains, it's not only Nick’s attention to detail, but also his excellent customer service, overall friendly demeanour, and his willingness to go that little further than the extra mile that has set him above and beyond any expectation.

Due to family commitments, Nick was unfortunately unable to accept his award in person, however Metro Rod Manchester and Macclesfield franchisees, Graeme and Avril Stevenson, picked up the honour on his behalf, as well as the caricature picture and champagne that he was to be presented for his hard work and dedication across the calendar year.

Upon returning to work on the following Monday, Nick was chuffed to have received the news of his award:

“It’s always great to be recognised for your work, no matter what you do. I was surprised to be honest – considering we have a network of over 300 engineers attending blocked drains across the UK every single day – it’s a real honour to receive it, so thank you”.
