Yuasa have been awarded Battery Supplier of the Year at the very first Workshop Power Awards. The world’s leading battery manufacturer picked up the prestigious trophy at a glitzy gala award ceremony at the top of Portsmouth’s Spinnaker Tower on 4 September.
Workshop Power is organized by Workshop Magazine. It is the first awards event of its kind to put the power firmly in the hands of its readers by surveying hundreds of them to find the best suppliers and partners to the automotive industry.
As the winners are chosen by trade professionals, they reflect who the trade think are the best companies to work with. The Workshop Magazine team has no influence over the winners.
After hundreds of survey responses were counted, Yuasa saw off stiff competition from other major battery brands to be awarded Battery Supplier of the Year.
James Douglas, Marketing Executive for Yuasa Battery Sales (UK) Ltd collected the award on behalf of Yuasa. Speaking after the event, he said: “We are delighted to receive the first ever Workshop Magazine Power Award and very proud to have been named Battery Supplier of the Year 2016.
“As the award is voted for by Workshop Magazine’s readers, it is a reflection of what people in the trade think. At Yuasa, we always strive to provide the highest level of quality, performance and reliability in our products, customer service and supply.
“To receive an award like this is a real testament to the hard work of everybody in the Yuasa team. It is fantastic to hear that we are meeting our customer’s high expectations, and that this has been recognised amongst the trade. Naturally we always strive to improve our offer, and we very much hope to defend our award at next year’s event.”
