The CAT Awards 2012 nominations are open. Itâ€™s time for you, the CAT readers, to tell us who are the companies and individuals that really stand out in the independent aftermarket and really deserve to be recognised.
As ever, the nominations will be collated into a final shortlist for each category, and the winners will be voted for by you from September via the secure voting page on the CAT website.
As ever, we anticipate each category to be hotly contested and we fully expect the calibre of finalists to be higher than ever before.
We have introduced a few changes for the 2012 CAT Awards: The Garage of the Year and Factor of the Year Categories will now be split into two awards to recognise the difference between large-scale enterprises and the rising stars whoâ€™s focus is on serving a smaller catchment area. In other words, and forgive the use of the clichÃ©: size doesnâ€™t matter, itâ€™s the quality that counts.
Another innovation for 2012 is the introduction of the Aftermarket Worker of the Year Award. This award is open to anyone who works within the independent aftermarket and we want to know who are the unsung heroes of our industry. Tell us who impresses you consistently with their commitment, passion and outstanding customer service.
The full list of categories is:
Supplier of the year
Retailer of the year
Factor of the year
Garage of the year
Person of the year
Aftermarket worker of the year
Technical and safety innovation of the year
