Excellence is rewarded! The 2014 British Bodyshop Awards winners

Over 930 guests enjoyed an absolutely brilliant night for the UK Body Repair Industry on Tuesday 13 May at one of London’s most prestigious venues - Battersea Evolution .

32 winners were selected from over 140 finalists as 21 presenting companies - insurers, vehicle manufacturers, accident managers and independent networks – gave out their awards to top performers within their respective networks.
The champagne flowed as Rob Brydon hosted the third British Bodyshop Awards ceremony with zest and a great deal of fun.

Industry guests then danced the night away to Motown’s greatest hits as the fabulous How Sweet It Is broke off from their UK concert hall tour to provide the post awards entertainment.

The Awards was once again supported by our Headline Partner - PPG Industries for the third consecutive year. We thank PPG , our Diamond Partners - Audatex UK, Ageas, ABP Club, Circle Leasing, Enterprise Rent-a Car, Farecla Products, I Love Claims, Mirka UK, Prasco UK, SIA and 3M and Nationwide who sponsored the dodgems, which provided fun for many. We thank them all for their much valued support of the event.

David Cresswell, chairman of ABP Club and facilitator of the evening said “The evening was simply unbelievable. To see so many bodyshop businesses and individual employees recognised in front of their peers was just fantastic! We thank all of our partners and in particular PPG for their absolutely tremendous support yet again, which enabled the industry to come together for this brilliant occasion. We are truly delighted the British Bodyshop Awards have proven to be exactly what was envisaged – an evening of pure celebration of our industry, which recognises and rewards excellence.
