Master Builder of the Year receives new Isuzu D-Max

Isuzu UK is thrilled to present this year’s winner of the Master Builder of the Year award, Vantage & Co Group Ltd, with a New-Look Isuzu D-Max DL40 in sleek Onyx Black with distinguished FMB branding. This prize vehicle serves as a symbol of their dedication to superior craftsmanship and their commitment to the FMB’s mission. 

The Federation of Master Builders (FMB) Master Builder Awards celebrate high-quality craftsmanship, exceptional customer service and building excellence delivered by Master Builders across the UK, recognising the significant contribution that small and medium-sized construction companies make to the UK construction industry. With this year’s awards having taken place in September, Vantage & Co Group Limited won the coveted Master Builder of the Year Award thanks to the company’s incredible resurrection of a Georgian villa standing in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter. 

Isuzu UK proudly took the title of headline sponsor for the FMB Awards 2023. The Pick-Up Professionals’ commitment to excellence in the automotive industry resonates with the Federation of Master Builders (FMB), which recognizes and celebrates the very best in the construction and building trade.

The official vehicle handover of the Isuzu pick-up occurred on Friday 20th October at the award-winning building, renowned for its architectural significance as one of only two Georgian villas in the Jewellery Quarter. The New-look Isuzu D-Max DL40 is equipped with a protective overrail liner in the load bed in order to enhance the utility and efficiency of the pick-up, making the prize vehicle the ideal building companion thanks to its 3.5-tonne towing capacity, 1-tonne payload, off-road capabilities and ADAS safety technology. Staff from both Isuzu UK and Vantage attended the handover, as well as Chris Carr, the National President of the FMB. 

With extensive experience in luxury residential refurbishment and new build projects spanning the Midlands, the Cotswolds, and beyond, Vantage & Co Group Limited brings a wealth of expertise to the realm of prestigious construction. Acknowledging the unique character of each endeavour, the company wholeheartedly embraces each client’s vision as their own, transforming it into a tangible reality. Their collaborative approach, symbolized by the “&Co” in the company name, exemplifies the team’s commitment to working hand in hand with clients, striving to seamlessly deliver every project. 

Established in 1941 the FMB is the largest trade association in the building industry and is a source of knowledge and professional advice for its members. The FMB’s strict membership criteria give consumers confidence when they are looking to use a builder. As a supplier of exclusively commercial vehicles, Isuzu UK is proud to be a longstanding partner of the FMB, with the Pick-Up Professionals holding the title of headline sponsor for this year’s FMB awards.  

George Wallis, Head of Marketing at Isuzu UK, commented: “We’re extremely happy to join in celebrating Vantage & Co Group Limited’s fantastic success with the awards this year. Winning the overall Master Builder of the Year award is an exceptional achievement, and it’s a testament to the outstanding work produced by everyone at Vantage. We’re excited to see the latest D-Max with FMB branding serving as a symbol of their excellence and dedication in the construction industry.” 

Brian Berry, Chief Executive of the Federation of Master Builders said: “The overall Master Builder Award stands as a testament to the exceptional craftsmanship and unwavering commitment to excellence that Vantage & Co Group Limited has consistently delivered, particularly with this project. Isuzu UK’s presentation of the pick-up truck prize, complete with distinctive FMB branding, is a fitting symbol of their dedication to superior construction. The FMB is delighted to see such remarkable work recognised, and we’re proud to have Isuzu UK as our headline sponsor, supporting our mission to honour the best in the construction industry.”
