Bri-Stor Awarded Outstanding Contribution Award by RAC Operations
On Friday 17th March Bri-Stor attended the Annual Supplier Awards Ceremony with the RAC. The event was held at The RAC Club in London where the RAC recognised their suppliers and partners who have made an outstanding contribution to the RAC’s business over 2016.
Bri-Stor are very proud to have been recognised with this award from RAC for their contributions over 2016 which saw over 250 vehicles being converted – all with a key for key delivery service.
It is testament to the dedication and effort of the 400 staff of the Bri-Stor Group who all contribute to our combined success.
The build begins for the Caterim Kit Car
Our 2nd year Apprentices get under way with their 2017 project to build a Caterim kit car. Every week will see them progress through a pre-defined schedule which will result in a completed build. The build will take around 12 weeks and this will certainly challenge our Apprentices, especially in their technical skills. The build will include full assembly of drivetrain, engine, electricals, bodywork and fixings to produce a fully functional track day car.
This weeks’ task was to get to grips with fitting instructions and to start building the suspension wishbones. Not an easy task by far, but we have confidence that our Apprentices will complete this section ready for the next stage.
Atlas Coating Manager Ian Buckley, who is project managing the build said:
"It's a great project for the young Apprentices to be involved in and they've been really keen to get started. It's a good opportunity to hone their engineering skills whilst working on something really engaging interesting to them whilst building good teamwork skills. I think they'll be really proud of the finished project once its complete."

Bri-Stor Apprentices already making the news for this year's Soapbox race in Stone
STONE'S soapbox race is hoped to become one of the biggest events on the Staffordshire calendar and Bri-Stor are looking forward to taking part amongst the action.
The inaugural event last year attracted around 3,000 people to the town's High Street and this year's event on bank holiday Monday, May 29, will feature more jumps, around 50 teams and daytime entertainment.
The 2017 prize list will be extended to include categories such as best dressed soapbox and entertainment value across all sectors such as male teams, female teams, junior teams or more than 150 teams to allow for more prizes to be given out.
William Davies-Hill, Apprenticeship Manager and one of our apprentices, Joe Abbotts, met with race organiser Grahame Neagus in Stone to confirm our place at this years’ event.
He said "We are raising money for Help For Heroes - we raised about £520 last year through sponsorship for the race. It was good fun and this year we will have a few teams of apprentices entering and making the soapboxes".
