It was third time lucky for James Alpe at their Industry Awards event attended by almost 900 people last week at the NEC in Birmingham.

Online PR News – 05-October-2011 – – Clitheroe, UK - In front of key industry figures the company was named as the UK’s best Large Bodyshop of the Year by the voice behind X Factor Peter Gibson at the glittering Bodyshop Awards ceremony.

Alpe’s have been finalists for the last two years, even being given a special ‘highly commended’ at last year’s event. The award acknowledges Alpes as the best in the business across the UK showing their commitment to innovation, customer service and top quality workmanship.

The diverse organisation that is Alpes had to go through challenging and rigorous audits and interviews where the business was studied in great depth by Industry experts. The winner is kept a closely guarded secret until the spectacular awards ceremony which was attended by Deputy Managing Director Lee Boyle and Business Development Manager Alison Goossens.

‘We are absolutely thrilled’ commented Boyle to the Advertiser this week ‘until three years ago our brand was recognised only locally, now our name is recognised across the UK and this award has put us seriously on the map with prestigious work providers, it couldn’t have come at a more important time’. The award comes right on the back of Alpe’s recent Jaguar & Land Rover Approvals which should also provide the company with additional work.
