finalist logo

We are pleased to announce this year’s winners of the 145 Top Shop Awards! It was another amazing voting season, with a total of 13,803 nominations and 5380 winning votes submitted in thirty different repair categories. We also saw a 37% increase in the number of winning votes cast this year versus last year, 1920 more votes to be exact. The hottest contested repair category this year was for the Best Accessory Class I, II and III Repair with thirteen companies competing for the title. We also saw some close races in the Accessory Class I, II and III, Aerostructures and Wheel & Brake categories. One race ended in a tie for the Ozone Repair category with Limco Air Repair and Triumph Accessory Repair – Wellington winning that category.

On behalf of The 145, and all the repair centers, we want to thank everyone that participated by submitting votes this year. Without your votes there wouldn’t be a 145 Top Shop Awards. We also want to congratulate this year’s winners on a job well done. If you’re a Top Shop you must be doing something right, so keep it up!
