Suppliers triumph at TfL Supplier Awards
In partnership with the London Transport Museum, Transport for London held its first ever Supplier Awards on 15 November, recognising the contribution that a wide range of companies make to running and improving transport in the Capital.
This momentous event recognised the organisations in TfL’s supply chain for their efforts across a range of areas, from increasing opportunities for those under-represented in the workplace to working to protect the environment. There were more than eighty submissions for the eight different awards and shortlisting was completed by a number of topic experts from across TfL, with final winners chosen by the Executive Committee members.
Congratulations to the following award winners:
Collaboration – Bam Nuttall
Best Health Initiative – Costain Skanska JV
Best Safety Initiative – FM Conway
Best Environmental Initiative – Ferrovial Laing O’Rourke JV
Best Apprenticeship Scheme – Thales (winner), Exterion Media (special recognition)
Best scheme for increasing those underrepresented in the workplace – Siemens

Supplier of the Year
There was a surprise category on the night – TfL’s Supplier of the Year – which was awarded to Siemens who have proven themselves to be an outstanding supplier, working to support women back into employment and developing the potential of those already in the transport industry. Siemens have also developed their operational practices when installing traffic signals, to increase efficiency and reduce the impact on customers, and have been a key part of TfL’s success in delivering 36 trains per hour on the Victoria line.
Host for the night David Wylie, TfL’s Chief Procurement Officer, said: ‘We are excited to host the first ever Supplier Awards at the London Transport Museum to recognise all of the hard work that our suppliers put into keeping Londoners and visitors on the move. There was fierce competition in all of the categories and it was tough picking who should win. Our congratulations go to all of the winning and shortlisted suppliers.’
