The Heavies was met with eager anticipation and did not fail to impress. The venue was amazing, with vehciles and trailers surrounding diners in the spectacular Hangar 42. Heavy haulage remained the main focus of the evening, enabling me to meet with fellow hauliers and exchange stories and business cards.

Well organised and a nice location to pass a diverting evening.’ The Heavies 2015’ was a nice experience for Faymonville and our partners in the United Kingdom. To win the prize for the ‘Innovation of the Year – Manufacturer’ was further recognition of our CombiMAX and its outstanding and unique character for the transport sector. This event was a proof of the moving transport business in the UK – a market where Faymonville Trailers occupy the leading position.

In all honesty I found the evening fantastic. Very well organised with a great ambiance! What I particularly enjoyed was the perfect balance between the official proceedings and ample networking opportunities. The speeches were short but with enough content, and the winners were certainly given their moment to bask in the glory. We look forward to adding this exciting event to our event calendar in future years!
