MINI has been honoured by one of the great City of London Livery Companies, which were formed originally as quality control organisations for the various English trades and crafts. The Worshipful Company of Coach Makers and Coach Harness Makers received its Royal Charter in 1677 and knows a thing or two about transport. At its annual Award to Industry dinner, the Master of the Livery said that the MINI met all of the award criteria in that it, "…epitomised all that was best in technical engineering coupled with excellence in design and huge commercial success."
