Ripon-based Econ Engineering is celebrating this morning after scooping a major award at the ‘Oscars’ of the commercial motoring and road haulage industry.

The UK’s leading supplier of winter maintenance vehicles won Bodybuilder of the Year at the Commercial Motor Awards in Birmingham – where the cream of operators, dealers and suppliers did battle for the top honours. 

Econ, which supplies 85% of the nation’s winter maintenance vehicles, from its assembly plant in Ripon, beat Lothian Vehicle Bodybuilders and TVS Interfleet to the award.

A team from Econ was at the Road Transport Ball last night, held at the Vox, Birmingham NEC, to pick up their award.

Managing director, Jonathan Lupton, said: “Words cannot describe how proud I feel right now to have come away with such a prestigious award.

“We know how hard every member of our team works to ensure that we maintain the high standards that Econ are renowned for, and this award goes to each and every one of the Econ family.”
