We are absolutely delighted to win the Aftermarket Accessories Award category at this year’s WhatVan? Awards. It has been a great opportunity for us to showcase our leading security solutions and we are proud to be recognised for our efforts in driving innovation for the industry.
One of the most vital considerations for operators having made an initial purchasing decision is how to enhance or maintain their light commercial vehicles once they have left the showroom. This award category gave us the opportunity to demonstrate how our sought-after locking and shielding solutions deliver considerable benefits to the sector.
It has been a challenging year and L4V has risen to the challenges presented by the Pandemic. We have been a key partner to courier and logistics companies to protect fleets as they deliver high value items to support those working from home. Our products are also commissioned by BFS Group to ensure the UK’s largest food distributor can operate securely across its network and meet demand. Furthermore, due to our capability and product quality, we were also chosen to support a critical project for the NHS. As part of the supply chain, our locks were specified to secure vehicles carrying gas canisters and ventilators to hospitals during the first wave of the Pandemic. Responding to a lead time of just 24 hours, our team mobilised to ensure we could support the secure transportation of these highly targeted items.
This award recognises that our impressive product portfolio is the result of our unrivalled design, research and development facility. Having invested £2.5million this year to extend our capability further, L4V is entirely committed to producing rapid game-changing solutions for our customers.
Chris Batterbee, CEO at Locks 4 Vans concludes: “This is an exciting time for the business, and winning this award is testament to the talent and dedication of every one of my team here at L4V. Our R&D expansion combined with key appointments to the management team are driving us forward so that we can continue to surpass our customers’ expectations. With one van broken into every 23 minutes, our mission has always been to stay one step ahead, and our pace of innovation will deliver exactly that. Our loyal customers trust our reputation and our products, and with 90% of our turnover generated by repeat business, we are doing something right”.
