Gongs given out at industry dinner

Published:  07 December, 2012

AN AWARD ceremony took place at the  dinner following the IAAF conference on December6th. Brian Spratt announced the winners who received their trophies and a bottle of Champagne from the   Federation's President Nick Best.

"In a year when we've all been inspired by the Olympic and para-Olympics we can take similar inspiration from our colleagues in the independent aftermarket who are demonstrating 'Excellence' in their field of endeavour," said Mr Spratt.

He reported that a healthy level of nominations had been received in all five categories, with the judges having their work cut out in selecting the eventual finalists. Brian explained that those finalists were then subject to further scrutiny to ensure the validity of their entries.

"It's this level of scrutiny," he said, "which makes the IAAF awards the foremost prize in the aftermarket."

The winners of the IAAF Excellence Awards were:

CV Supplier of Excellence Award: Roadlink International Ltd

Supplier of Excellence Award: NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd

Garage of Excellence Award: Port Tyres and Autocare Ltd.

Distributor of Excellence Award: Parker Motor Services Ltd

CV Distributor of Excellence Award: D B Wilson Jr & Co. Ltd.
