TBF Thompson in Mallusk has been recognised at the annual Export & Freight Transport & Logistics Awards for its facilities to provide customer service and support.
The company was presented with the ‘Workshop of the Year’ award, sponsored by the Institute of Road Transport Engineers, at a glittering ceremony at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in South Belfast, an event attended by almost 600 guests from all sectors of the transport and logistics industry and compered by BBC NI News presenter Sarah Travers and Actor and Comedian Tim McGarry.
Organised by the Hillsborough based publishers of Export & Freight magazine, 4SM (NI) Ltd, the event, returning after a two year absence because of the Covid-19 pandemic, is Ireland’s premier platform of recognition for those operating in the industry; it celebrates all the hard work, determination, and ongoing investment that make the industry what it is today.
The award judges said they had a tough time separating the finalists, with all demonstrating safe working environments, highly trained staff throughout and extensive tools and equipment available…but there could only be one winner – and after ‘careful consideration’ that was TBF Thompson.
TBF Thompson holds the franchise for DAF Trucks in Northern Ireland. With three depots strategically placed throughout the province, it offers unrivalled customer service and support. The company’s links to the transport industry go back many decades, so the team at TBF Thompson is well experienced in anticipating the needs of customers, with well equipped state-of-the-art workshops and highly trained technicians who employ the latest modern techniques to investigate, diagnose and fix trucks.
