Range Rover Receives Coachmakers Award To Industry 2003

The new Range Rover has been recognised for its 'outstanding contributions to technological advancement in transport and for its elegance and commercial significance' with the prestigious Coachmakers Award to Industry.

The award came from The Worshipful Company of Coachmakers and Coach Harness Makers, which was established in 1677 in the reign of James II who charged the organisation with responsibility for quality control in the manufacture of coaches. One of the oldest trade bodies in the world, the organisation today promotes excellence in the manufacture of vehicles for transportation, particularly in the automotive and aerospace industries.

Receiving the award, Land Rover's managing director Bob Dover said: "This is a very prestigious award, as the names of the previous winners on the trophy suggest – from Sir William Lyons to Rolls Royce. Owners, dealers and the company's employees all over the world should be very proud of this excellent achievement."

The award trophy was presented by Victor Gauntlett, former chairman of Aston Martin Lagonda, which itself received the Coachmakers Award to Industry in 1989. Land Rover's award completes a hat-trick for Ford's Premier Automotive Group UK stablemates, as Jaguar also received the same accolade in 1988.
