Whitefield Distribution, a leading family run Parcel Distribution Service, whose vehicles have been supplied by Northgate Vehicle Hire
for 10+ years, has announced the winner of its North East wide competition to find the most creative van livery design for the company’s limited edition Olympic vehicle.
Running across Whitefield’s three depots in Newcastle, Kent and Heywood, fifty employees took part in the competition, but the overall winner was crowned due to the creativity and attention to detail of the vehicle design. National colours, the inclusion of the British flag and a patriotic slogan ‘Supporting Our Nation’ impressed the judging panel that felt it captured the spirit of the nation perfectly. Michael Landreth from the Newcastle depot claimed the top prize.
Mr Landreth will have the pleasure of driving his limited edition vehicle until it is de-commissioned after 3 years months and Whitefield Distribution will also be producing two more liveried vehicles with the same design to run out of the Heywood and Kent depots.
Dayne Smith, Director of Whitefield Distribution, said:
“As a family business we strongly believe in keeping our workforce happy and making them feeling a part of the company so we thought what better way than to run a competition for our employees to create a vehicle design to commemorate this wonderful sporting year. I think Northgate was thoroughly impressed with the winning design as it stood out from the crowd, clearly identified the year of sport and gave a sense of being proud to be British. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Northgate Vehicle Hire
for all of its help over the years.”
“Whitefield is a valued customer and they are a pleasure to work with. It’s a strong family business that’s currently thriving despite the wider economic difficulties, and the competition was a fantastic idea to keep morale and motivation high amongst employees. The winning vehicle design is very fitting for what’s set to be a fantastic year of sporting activities.”
