France-based specialized vehicle manufacturer Nicolas has been awarded the Supply Star award from French plant manufacturer Technip.

The award is presented on an annual basis. It is awarded for overall performance, reliability, responsiveness and risk management. The award was presented to Nicolas for the Nicolas Reel Carrier.

The Reel Carrier is 25 metres high and 20 m wide. It is being used to move drums of off and on-shore hose and cables at Technip facilities, a spokesperson said.

Sebastien Porteu, Nicolas managing director, said, “The Supply Star Award is confirmation of our strategy at Nicolas regarding product development, quality and customer service. Our Reel Carrier ensures efficient and cost-effective operational procedures at Technip which are characterised by high quality and reliability. The fact this is being acknowledged today and that Technip has been extremely satisfied with our vehicles for many years now, this is motivation indeed for all employees at Nicolas.”
