Paul Barker's blog: 28 January 2014 - The industry's favourite firms rewarded - as chosen by you
28 January 2014

By the time you read this, granitekitchen will have handed out trophies to the best products, services and companies in the business - as voted for by the readers of granitekitchen magazine and our website granitekitchen.co.uk.
The awards are being presented at an exclusive lunch, sponsored by the UK's biggest and most influential fuel card company Allstar, and held at the five-star Grange Hotel in Holborn, London.
As the only awards in the industry voted for completely by the industry, we know how rewarding it is for the companies that are victorious, so I'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone that took the time to vote. One or two of the categories in particular were tight enough that a handful of votes in either direction were enough to swing it.
We have some new winners, some dominant firms retaining their position, and a couple of surprises, so read on for the full 2014 granitekitchen Awards extravaganza.
As well as the top three in the Business Car of the Year category, chosen from the big new fleet models of 2014, we have three other headline categories, 12 car categories and 11 service supplier awards.
I'd also like to say thanks to Allstar for its support of this year's awards. We also congratulate all the winners, who can spend the rest of the year declaring that the industry has picked them as the best in their sector or class, while we say better luck next year to those that didn't manage to pick up a trophy in 2014.
