11 Award Winning Years 2006 - 2016
Ten Years – Ten Awards 07 January 2016
Another success for Brackley’s APS – expansion and an unbroken decade of gold awards.
After ten years in business, Brackley-based European car specialist APS has once again been given a huge vote of confidence by its customers, with no less than ten independent service provider gold awards.
The company has also increased its workshop capacity and taken on more staff over the last twelve months.
The three-man team behind Buckingham Road-based APS, Andrew MacLeish, Nathan Sammons and Ed Jackson have more than 40 years of experience in the trade between them.
Every single year they have been in business so far (2006 -2015), Buckingham Road-based APS has been voted Independent Service Provider of the Year by the readers of the prestigious Audi Driver magazine – the ‘Oscars’ of the VW/Audi world. That now means they have picked up the coveted gold award every year for a decade.
Director Ed Jackson said both he and his colleagues were “very happy indeed” to have secured the award once again.
“Since opening in late 2005, we have been delighted to see our customer base grow and grow, with regular repeat custom and word of mouth recommendations helping boost our database.
“We have also built up many great and long term relationships in the trade industry too and we are proud to support many local and national suppliers during the last decade and into the future.
“This year we made some changes to increase our workshop capacity and also to carry out a general refit of some of our equipment. This expansion also allowed us to take on more staff and we are pleased that the continued success of our business enabled this growth. Our vision has always been to the long term and to build a strong and reputable business” he added.
APS predominantly handles general and specialist service work for most European and light commercial vehicles and can provide tyres and MOTs for vehicles ranging from family saloons to supercars and commercial vehicles.
To win the coveted Independent Service Provider Gold Award, APS was up against dozens of expert service provider companies specialising in the VW and Audi marque from all over the UK.
Andy McLeish and Nathan Sammons, who both live in the Brackley area, are the APS Directors who run the workshop. Between them they have many years of experience, especially with VW/Audi Group, and both worked for AmD Bicester before setting up APS in 2006.
