Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) landed two prestigious awards at the Northern Automotive Alliance (NAA) Awards on 10 November in Manchester, seeing off stiff competition from high-profile companies from the region.
BAC won the highly acclaimed International Trade Award as well as the Logistics Excellence Award to once again prove that it’s one of the most exciting and innovative businesses in the UK.
The International Trade Award goes to the brand that’s displayed overseas excellence and showcased the best of British abroad, and BAC was a worthy winner.
The Liverpool-based brand has exported its single-seater Mono supercar to 28 countries, including the likes of Qatar, Myanmar, Brazil and Taiwan, and broke plenty of new ground over the course of 2016.
Covering five continents is a truly impressive feat for a niche company like BAC, and NAA judges recognised the rationale and effectiveness of the company’s international trade strategy.
The Logistics Excellence Awarded was presented to the company that demonstrated all-round logistical success, innovation and, of course, excellence.
Logistics is at the heart of BAC’s business; 98 per cent of its supply chain is based in the UK and 45 per cent of its materials are sourced from around its home in the north-west of England.
BAC is proud of its British heritage and shows a great deal of commitment to the country by minimising its in-bound logistics footprint. Its outward logistics portfolio is equally impressive
BAC is no stranger to winning awards for its business prowess, having won the MIB Manufacturing Business of the Year and the Merseyside Innovation Award Overall Winner prizes back in 2014.
It’s reigned supreme at the NAA Awards before, too, landing the Innovation Award back in 2011 – a prize it was shortlisted for this year.
BAC co-founder and Director of Product Development Neill Briggs said:
To be recognised for our business achievements by the NAA is a real honour. We have a hugely talented team at BAC keeping us ticking and forever breaking new territories around the globe. We are extremely proud of our UK heritage and always strive for economic and environmental excellence in our production process.
