We are delighted to announce that the Group has been announced as finalists at this year's Bodyshop Awards 2021.
Hosted by Bodyshop Magazine, the awards celebrate the industry achievements over the past year and recognises the top performers, both businesses and individuals, in accident repair.
MSO Bodyshop of the Year
The Group has been nominated for Multi-Site Operator of the Year. With nine sites, and two due to open in early 2022, our portfolio has grown rapidly over the past year and we are very pleased to be recognised for our work in this category.
New Bodyshop of the Year
Our modern, high-specification site based in Trafford Park, Manchester has been selected in the New Bodyshop of the Year category. This new site embodies our modern, forward-thinking Vella look with energy efficient facilities, a bespoke reception area, glass offices, and a chill out work hub.
Celebrating our individuals
It's not only the Group who has been recognised, but the incredible people behind the scenes who make us what we are.
Joel Tunstall from our LV Sole Supply Site in Deeside will compete for Panel Technician of the Year, and Simon Broomfield, from our Skelmersdale site, is up for MET Technician of the Year.
We're also incredibly pleased to see that three of our Multi-Skilled Apprentices have made it through to the finals in all three disciplines. Catherine Short, based at our Workington site, is nominated for Apprentice MET Technician of the Year. Harry Owens, a Skelmersdale colleague, is competing for Apprentice Panel Technician of the Year, and Michael Reynolds, from Deeside, is shortlisted for Apprentice Paint Technician of the Year.
