Truckman Sponsors ‘Pick Up of the Year’ at the What Van? Awards

19952Truckman, the UK’s leading manufacturer and distributor of 4x4 hardtops and accessories, has been confirmed as the sponsor of the inaugural Pick-up truck category at the industry famous What Van? Awards 2017.

Taking place on December 13, the What Van? Awards are renowned as the most-prized independent endorsements of excellence in the Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) industry.

Hundreds of industry professionals will attend the awards ceremony, which is being held at the prestigious The Brewery in the City of London, to celebrate the achievements of the LCV sector and unveil What Van? magazine’s vehicles of the year.

Every year the panel of What Van?’s editorial staff draw on expertise accrued over decades to select the light commercial vehicles, services and innovations they believe most deserve to be recognised.

The 2017 event will be the largest yet and includes several sponsored categories, among them the Truckman-sponsored Pick-up award.  With a number of new pick-ups hitting the market in the past 12 months, competition for the award will be hotly-contested.

Truckman hardtops are renowned for their robust, secure and stylish features.  The company is the chosen UK OEM supplier for Isuzu, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Toyota and Volkswagen and is a highly-respected part of the after-market supply chain.

For nearly 30 years, the West Midlands-based manufacturer and distributor is best-known for its market leading Truckman range of hardtop canopies.  The Truckman brand has been synonymous with high-quality commercial and luxury hardtops for several decades.  

Mike Wheeler, Managing Director of Truckman, said: “We are very proud and excited to sponsor the What Van? Awards Pick-up category.  The UK sector is going from strength to strength with pick-ups becoming increasingly popular as a reliable and effective choice of commercial vehicle.  

“Their versatility and off-road capabilities, combined with their storage capabilities, which can be enhanced with the addition of a Truckman hardtop, makes pick-up trucks a natural choice for many companies.”

“The awards will be a great way to celebrate the achievements of the sector and recognise the prominent position pick-ups are taking in the LCV sector.”
