UK-based commercial vehicle manufacturer, Bevan Group, has won the ‘Bodybuilder of the Year’ award during a presentation dinner held at The Vox Centre in Birmingham.
Transport industry experts on the judging panel reportedly hailed the quality and breadth of Bevan’s submission, which was supported by a case study based on the company’s partnership with infrastructure support service leader, Amey.
Focusing on Bevan’s pioneering Sky Hook fall prevention system and Safe-T-Drop rails for dropside bodies, one judge commented: “The safety innovations are not only clever, but also offer great benefits for both employers and operators in order to work in a safe environment.”
Another hailed the company’s “excellent ongoing strategy for measuring retention,” noting: “Overall results show good levels of satisfaction and long-term relationships.” And a third highlighted Bevan’s “clear development of bespoke products”, which gave it an edge in the market. “Evidence of growth is clear to see,” said the judge.
“This fantastic achievement underlines the quality not only of our products, but also of the highly professional and committed team I am privileged to lead,” said Bevan Group Managing Director, Anthony Bevan. “Every one of them has contributed, and they can all take pride in our success.”
The family-owned company has manufactured more than 60 truck and van bodies a week, including boxes, curtain-siders, tippers, drop-siders, and Lutons as well as specialist products such as highway maintenance vehicles.
In addition to bodybuilding, the Bevan Group has engaged in the maintenance and repair of tail-lifts, cranes, roller shutter doors and bodies.
