Workshop Power Awards 2017 winners revealed!

Workshop Power Awards 2017 winners revealed!

THE trophies and certificates have been presented – which means we can now reveal who won what at this evening’s Workshop Power Awards!

The glittering ceremony was held at the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth, and was another great success after last year’s inugural event.

We were inundated once again with responses to our survey to discover who were the best suppliers and partners to the automotive service industry. The Workshop Magazine team had absolutely no influence over who won the awards – it was all down to the trade professionals.

And that’s great news for those who were announced as the best or who were highly commended, because they know they’ve got the respect of their peers – an invaluable marketing tool.

Pictures of the night can be downloaded here and a full report from the grand event will be included in issue 26 of Workshop Magazine, which will be published on Monday, November 6. In the meantime, though, here are 2017’s winners and highly commendeds:
