AW Group award hat-trick
AW Repair Group is honoured to have been named as one of 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain.
The directory, compiled by the London Stock Exchange Group, lists the top 1,000 businesses considered to be the most inspiring, dynamic and fastest growing companies. With 40 industry sectors covered, AW Repair Group is the only bodyshop group named in the 20 companies presented within the Automotive sector.
Managing director Andrew Walsh said, ‘This has come as a complete surprise. We did not enter a competition or put ourselves forward. The company has been selected by some of the most highly respected financial establishments. It is an absolute honour to be recognised as an inspiring company.’
To be selected for the list businesses must have demonstrated not only positive growth in revenue over the last three years (between £6m and £250m) but also outperform their sector peers.
AW Repair Group has opened a new repair centre for three consecutive years and employs more than 125 personnel.
AW Repair Group is also delighted its 18 month old Nottingham site has reached the finals of bodyshop’s Medium Bodyshop of the Year.
In addition Lincolnshire HQ panel technician Terry McNamara is finalist in the skill awards.
‘To be finalists in two categories is fantastic,’ said group operations manager James Dunn. ‘Terry is highly skilled and we are so happy for him to reach the finals after an on-line exam and two days testing at the Thatcham Research Centre. To be selected as one of the top four panel technicians in the country is a huge achievement whatever happens on the night.’
