Presented at a gala dinner following the recent Groupauto & UAN trade show in Liverpool, First Line Ltd has been presented with Groupauto’s runners-up trophy in the ‘Supplier of the Year’ category. First Line stated that the award is “further recognition of the strength of the First Line and Borg & Beck brands, as well as the relationship the company and its employees have with motor factors and workshops across the country.”
First Line has accumulated awards in the last few years for its domestic and export business; in the latest Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200, for example, First Line was the highest placed mainstream automotive parts distributor, in 51st place overall. The 200 ranks Britain’s mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales, measured over their latest two years of available accounts, providing a barometer of private company growth and performance.
“Our long held business philosophy is to offer our customers a broad range of premium quality service and repair components, that are underpinned by the highest level of availability and excellent customer support” said managing director, Dan Joyner. “As a result of upholding these core principles, our customers have responded by honouring us with several awards and decorations over the last few years in particular.
“Alongside the quality that comes as standard throughout our product range, we could not have obtained these notable achievements without the hard work and commitment of our employees, so it is to them, as well as the individual businesses that have voted for us, that we offer our gratitude.”
