NBRA announces 2023 Greener Bodyshop Awards winners

The National Body Repair Association (NBRA) announced the winners of its annual Greener Bodyshop Awards at a gala dinner last night (14 September) at Alton Towers.

Thomas Hudd, NBRA national technical manager, said: “We are very honoured to recognise and award those who have made a significant impact in the industry, from environmental improvement and positive changes in business culture to their commitment to diversity and inclusion.”

“We are thrilled that this year’s event saw record-breaking attendance, with more participants than ever before. These awards have become a beloved and eagerly anticipated event within the industry. The enthusiasm and support from our industry peers and partners have been truly inspiring. We’re already hard at work to make the next GBSA’s bigger and better than ever!”

Michael Wicks, NBRA national business development manager, added: “Our journey towards a greener body repair industry would not have been possible without the support and commitment of the NBRA members and our sponsors. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all those who welcomed our Greener Bodyshops initiative and have supported it since its launch in 2019.”
