FAB scoops Best Service Supplier Award at NAPFM Conference

FAB wins NAPFM award
FAB Recycling has worked hard to build relationships with trade and fleet markets, including police forces up and down the country. It was good to see them rewarded at the NAPFM Conference.
Green OE vehicle parts supplier FAB Recycling has received the Best Service Supplier Stand Award at this year’s National Association of Police Fleet Managers´ (NAPFM) Conference.

The international NAPFM Conference is held annually and is one of the largest emergency service fleet events in Europe. It brings together all the UK police forces, fire brigades and ambulance services, plus suppliers which includes vehicle manufactures, vehicle converters, parts and service suppliers.

During the show, delegates are asked to judge the exhibitors on the following factors:
  • Technical and sales assistance available on the stand
  • Quality of the exhibition stand / display
  • Quality and variety of the products available
FAB’s Jason Cross said, “To win the Best “Service Supplier” award, when you consider the calibre of the companies represented at the NAPFM, is just remarkable and a real achievement for all at FAB Mygreenfleet. A great deal of effort goes into all that we do, in particular the quality of parts and service that we offer all year round, so to have this recognised by our customers and for them to say that by voting for us is very well received.”

You can visit FAB’s website here for further information about the company and its services.
