This year saw the Motor Transport Awards take place at the prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel situated on London’s Park Lane. Over 1,500 guests gathered to celebrate the achievements of the industry and recognise innovation, outstanding service, efficiency and quality. The Hankook sales teams invited some key customers to the event, including Nick Vallance, Managing Director at W L Vallance Limited.

“Many, many thanks for a wonderful evening both prior to and at the Motor Transport Awards Ceremony,” said Vallance. “The guys at Hankook are always such good company and make all their guests feel most welcomed.”

Brett Emerson commented: “The Hankook team always look forward to attending this prestigious event with some of our key customers. As the market leader in the UK on Truck Tyres, we believe this is the best possible award for us to sponsor as we are also at the forefront of technical excellence. I think it is fair to say the entire evening went extremely well and we had some great feedback from our customers, and may I once again congratulate Tesco Distribution on winning this coveted award. Well done to everyone on a fantastic evening.”
