Gilles Caille to receive DIY Lifetime Award
Also the co-founder of fediyma, the European Federation of DIY Manufacturers, Mr Caille will be presented with the award on the first day of the European home improvement forum. It's the second time the award has been given out at the event, which is organised jointly by fediyma and the European DIY Retail Association (EDRA).

He said: "I feel extremely honoured by this DIY lifetime award. I see in such a distinction the recognition for all these years I have dedicated to DIY as general manager of Red Head, president of Unibal and, especially, as one of the founders of fediyma.

"My dream of a strong European organisation alongside America and Asia have now been realised. Many countries have now joined fediyma and with a growing EDRA for the retailers the two associations have created a fruitful cooperation, which among others has resulted in the fediyma/EDRA European forum."

500 delegates are expected to participate in the forum event, which takes place on May 31 and June 1, 2012.
