Bodyshop award

Balgores wins award at prestigious automotive industry event

East Anglia’s leading accident repair group, Balgores, have won a highly-valued automotive industry award presented by the Auto Body Professionals Club (ABP).

In early November, the ABP club held their annual convention followed by their Night of Knights 2018 awards event at the Vox conference centre at the NEC, Birmingham, with Balgores Romford-based accident repair centre winning the Independent Single Site Bodyshop award.

Balgores have developed a reputation for being at the forefront of body repair technology. Committed to achieving high standards, Balgores value manufacturer repair approvals very highly, and actively invest in the latest accident repair technology and staff training programmes.

The most significant industry event of the year

The ABP awards were presented for a wide range of categories including motor insurance company, accident management company, manufacturer approvals, paint brand and distributor, bodyshop consumables and capital equipment, and courtesy car provider.

The ABP convention and awards event is viewed by many industry professionals as ‘the most significant industry event of the year’, and was attended by over 640 club members, delegates and guests who enjoyed a drinks reception, dinner, award presentation and guest speaker Claire Lomas MBE. It was the biggest convention and awards event organised by ABP to date which has grown steadily since its inception in 2007.

The Auto Body Professional Club aims to be a leading provider of information and communications for the UK body repair industry. The ABP Club began in 2004 and now has in excess of 2,500 individual members from all sectors of the industry including accident management companies, repairers, insurers, paint manufacturers, suppliers and trade bodies.
