Lucketts adds another golden spanner to the toolbox

Coach firm Lucketts Group has been awarded for its engineering excellence. The company has been presented with National Express’s ‘golden spanner’ award for the fourth consecutive year after going over and above in its annual engineering audit

The company, headquartered in Fareham, runs more than 100 journeys on behalf of the national coach firm every day. As well as driving the coaches, it maintains them at its in-house engineering department, ensuring they are safe, efficient and as comfortable as possible

Every year Lucketts Group is audited by National Express and its most recent inspection has seen it pick up the highest accolade possible – the golden spanner award – for the fourth year in a row

Managing director for Lucketts Tony Lawman said: “We are thrilled to be recognised for our excellence in engineering. The fact that we have retained the golden spanner for four consecutive years is testament to our consistently impeccable standards that we maintain with our entire fleet”

Lucketts consistently updates its fleet of National Express vehicles to ensure the very best experience for customers. Currently every single vehicle is less than 18 months old

The accolade from National Express is just one of the markers of Lucketts’ excellence in engineering and compliance. The company was the first coach firm in the UK to be part of the DVSA’s Earned Recognition pilot scheme after demonstrating impeccable compliance, safety and engineering records
