Bendi walked away with the Innovation Award at Asda’s annual Store Proposition award ceremony for the Mini Bendi, which saves warehouse space, increases shop floor selling space and frees up congestion in the pedestrian pick area.

Over 400 guests attended the annual awards ceremony, which this year was held at the prestigious Royal Armouries in Leeds. The majority of the guests were primarily from the construction industry as the awards recognise outstanding achievement in reducing construction costs and coming up with innovative new ideas to assist Asda in building great stores and meeting their environmental obligations whilst also saving money.

The pedestrian operated Mini Bendi was internally nominated by ASDA for the Innovation Award based on the effect it has had on reducing construction costs whilst also solving work place transport challenges. The person responsible for the initial nomination was Simon Grass, Asda Back of House Development Manager, who commented: “We are absolutely delighted that Bendi have won the Innovation Award. Asda have had a significant involvement in the development of the Mini Bendi and we now have a truck that offers greater flexibility as well as efficiency and productivity benefits compared to other types of handling equipment.”
