Allison Kemp, from AIM Commercial Services Ltd in Ripley, who nominated Lymers, said: “The haulage industry as a whole, and many firms across the region, have been at the forefront of efforts to meet the challenges posed by Covid-19. “Alex and his team were one of those I put forward because they have gone even further. They have ensured that hospitals had the extra capacity and space to be able to play their role on the front line in the fight against this virus.

“I am delighted that RHA agree and have recognised them in this way.”

Alex is proud that the work of Lymers Assist Ltd has been honoured.

He said: “The way everyone has responded to the challenge shows just what a great team we have here.”
