More innovation leads to more awards for Bandvulc

Posted on 23 July 2015

On Friday 10 July 2015, over 300 businesses attended the prestigious Shakespeare’s Globe in London for the sixthannual Red Ribbon Awards – celebrating the achievements of Britain’s finest family-run businesses.

At Bandvulc we have always looked at how we can develop our business through Innovation, so naturally being entered for the ‘Innovation Award’ category sits perfectly with what we stand for as a business. With hundreds of entries, competition in the ‘Innovation Award’ category was well represented and included businesses such as Fortnum & Mason. However, we are very proud to announce that Bandvulc were winners of the Bastows ‘Innovation’ award. The judges commented:

“Design and innovation are what set this company apart. From humble beginnings back in the 1970s, to a company which today employs over 400 people and turns over £60million. They have made a commitment to developing their own in-house research and development department meaning they can always stay one step ahead with the latestthinking and innovations – something which is crucial for family firms who want to grow and thrive.”

This award backs up everything we stand for at Bandvulc, with our focus always being firmly on ‘innovation’ throughout our business. This can be clearly seen in the recent announcements regarding the launch of new and innovative tyre products such as;

The FUELMASTER which uses a fuel saving compound to deliver greater economy.

The DELIVERYMASTER which has been specifically developed to cater for the demanding ‘Regional’ delivery sector.

The CITYMASTER which caters for the bus sector and protects the tyre from damage with its unique ARMORBAND technology.

As well as our products, our ever evolving fleet management solution , BV Plus+, is built on innovation and seeks to deliver to our customers solutions that match the needs of their business. This ‘ direct to end user approach’ means that at Bandvulc we help our customers understand their fleets better, whilst ensuring costs & waste are kept to a minimum.

Our roots in the UK as a leading tyre retread manufacturer, means that we constantly strive to ensure the UK market place gets the best possible products and service, removing the need to look outside of the UK for alternatives. We believe that our innovation will continue to drive our business and that of our customers forward.
