We are really proud to announce that Whirlpool UK has won the ‘Business Excellence’ award in the Motor Transport Awards 2019! The 33rd Motor Transport Awards took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s Park Lane on 3 July 2019.
The Motor Transport Awards are to celebrate, recognise and reward excellence in the road freight industry. They have been seen as a benchmark by many for excellence among UK road transport fleet operators, vehicle manufacturers and other innovators for over 30 years.
To be awarded for ‘Business Excellence’ means that Whirlpool UK has been recognised for standing out against competitors as well as being known as one of the best companies in the industry by customers and employees. The Business Excellence Award category honours companies that promote best working practices, offer exceptional employee development programmes and corporate social responsibility initiatives, including caring for the environment.
