Tuffa “Highly Commended” at APEA Live!

After a successful exhibition during the day, Tuffa’s James Shenton and Mike Bailey got suited and booted ready for the evening awards ceremony, hosted by former Top Gear presenter Quentin Wilson.

Tuffa had been shortlisted in one of the award categories, the Best New Non-Retail Fuel installation. This was a joint entry with our install partner, Forecourt Installation Services Ltd for a project we carried out for the food wholesaler, Pilgrim Foodservices. They required an 80,000 litre bespoke steel diesel storage tank and a 10,000 litre plastic AdBlue tank to cover the daily fuelling requirements of their fleet of 60 delivery vehicles. You can read more about this project here.

Tuffa UK was runner up in this category, being “Highly Commended” by the judging panel for our work on this project. Tuffa UK General Manager, James Shenton was understandably delighted to receive more industry recognition. “It’s a tremendous achievement to receive this prestigious recognition from one of the most respected trade bodies in the industry. Coming just a month after we were winners of The Employer of the Year Award at the Burton Mail Business Awards, it really is a fitting testament to the dedication and hard work of the entire Tuffa team,” he said.
