A Lancashire firm has been named Best Vehicle Security and Telematics Provider UK in this year’s Rail and Road Transport Awards.

Chorley-based Scorpion Automotive Ltd took the prize at the prestigious International Transport News awards.

Scorpion Automotive is a major designer, manufacturer and supplier of vehicle security alarm, immobiliser, theft and fleet GPS tracking systems for cars, motorcycles, vans, HGVs, plant and machinery.

The International Transport News awards continue to recognise the leading innovators and notable efforts made across the rail and road industries. Each year, International Transport News opens voting to general website traffic, their worldwide readership base, industry partners and client nominations.

Carl James, Scorpion’s head of marketing and sales operations said: “Ever increasing demands on businesses means managing their fleet of vehicles can be complex, time consuming and expensive.

“Knowing exactly what’s happening with their fleet and having real-time useable data at their fingertips can be invaluable to their business.

“Our ScorpionTrack Fleet telematics product provides our customers with detailed reporting on their drivers and vehicles’ operations, equipping them with the tools they need to help them increase profits by improving productivity and reducing running costs in a number of different ways.”

He added: “We’re particularly pleased to win this award given that nominations have been received from the transport industry itself and our own business customers.

“What’s more is that we’re proud that our range of vehicle telematics, tracking and security products are all designed and manufactured by Scorpion, right here in the UK.”

The company’s in-house team designs hardware and software to exacting standards.
