Brake friction technology provider TMD Friction has been named CV supplier of the year by the Independent Motor Trade Factors Associated Ltd (IFA).
Winning the title for the third time in five years, TMD Friction was nominated and voted for by the group’s members as part of IFA’s annual awards ceremony, which rewards excellence within the automotive industry.
TMD Friction’s Textar and DON brands were up against a number of different commercial vehicle products and came out on top as the overall winner of the CV Supplier of the Year category. The manufacturer was commended for achieving a class leading standard of service commitment throughout 2017.
Sue McKay, UK distributor sales manager for TMD Friction’s CV brands, said: “Not only do we invest up to €30 million into research and development each year to ensure our products are engineered for excellent performance, we keep a commitment to customer satisfaction as a number one priority.
“To be recognised for providing a class leading standard of service is a real honour, and it’s fantastic to be recognised for the third time in five years by the IFA for quality braking solutions and customer care.”
The IFA was formed in 1977 and now has more than 200 branches across the UK distributing components for cars, LCV and CV vehicles as well as garage equipment and tools, diagnostics, car care products and automotive training.
