The Bodybuilder of the Year Award at the Commercial Motor Awards 2017, recognises best practice, innovation and outstanding levels of customer service delivered by a company in the UK over the past 12 months.
The independent panel of judges looked for a bodybuilder involved in bespoke product design that listens to customer needs and is committed to delivering a quality product. As a new category for 2017, there was no winner at the inaugural Commercial Motor Awards last year.
“The past 12 months have seen some major changes at Peterborough-based Lawrence David as it continues to diversify the services it offers. While it can still launch products like a Volvo dropside rigid fitted with Hiab duo crane at the CV Show earlier this year, it has launched Trailer-eye - its trailer tracking solution. Benefits include instant trailer location on your computer and your smart phone, with the Trailer-eye app set to be launched. The acquisition of Woodston Point, Lawrence David’s £4.5m new head office has allowed it to relocate its Asset Management division as well as increase our rigid production facilities. It has also invested in its Advance Body Repair division, with a new £1.2m site in Corby and £1.2m site in Peterborough, equipped with full paint facilities. The judges said that Lawrence David was “clearly a successful company” that demonstrated “good innovation”.” – Commercial Motor
