Nationwide Accident Repair Services are delighted to announce that their Manchester Trafford Park Team’s hard-work has been recognised by LV= Insurance at the British Bodyshop Awards. The Nationwide branch was presented with the LV= Insurance: Best Loved Network Partner Bodyshop Award at the 2018 British Bodyshop Awards on Thursday 10th May.
The event is the biggest, most prestigious awards ceremony in the UK body repair industry, and sees companies nominate and then present awards to their providers and partners. Over 800 professionals from across the body repair industry gathered at Battersea Evolution for an evening of celebration and entertainment, including Nationwide Manchester Trafford Park General Manager, Darren Pennington.
Darren was on hand to collect the LV= award on behalf of himself and his team, he said: “I’d like to say again how incredible the team at Trafford Park have been, our success is a real team effort and I believe it’s a very well-deserved accolade for the team. I’m incredibly proud of them all. Thank you also to LV= for the award, and for the great partnership we have.”
Nationwide’s people are central to their success, and the team are delighted that their continuous hard-work and commitment to put their customers first has been recognised.
The Nationwide sponsored dodgems were again a big feature of the evening this year, where the contrast of tuxedos and fairground rides made for excellent entertainment. “The event was brilliant; the Nationwide sponsored dodgems were a huge hit as always and the Nationwide presence at the evening was great,” Darren said.
Nationwide had a further four nominations at the awards; Nationwide Gateshead were nominated in the AXA Insurance: Bodyshop of the Year Award, Nationwide JCC Grantham were nominated in the Direct Line Insurance Group: Speedy Repairer Award whilst Nationwide Gladwins, Kings Lynn and Nationwide Gladwins, Norwich were both also nominated in the LV= Insurance: Best Loved Network Partner Bodyshop Category.
Michael Wilmshurst, Nationwide CEO, said: “I’m delighted for our team at Manchester Trafford Park, it’s a fantastic achievement to be recognised. The teamwork Darren and his team display is admirable and their success would not have been achieved if it wasn’t for their hard work and commitment to delivering for our customers. Well done and thank you to our winners and our nominees.”
Nationwide Network Services also presented two awards to their approved network at the event. Congratulations to Palace Panels, Croydon, for winning Nationwide Network Services Approved Network Bodyshop of the Year – South and North of England Coachworks, Newcastle for winning Nationwide Network Services Approved Network Bodyshop of the Year – North.
