Crewe-based franchised dealer Swansway Garages has won the first ALD Automotive Dealer Award.
It has been presented to the Volkswagen, Audi and Seat dealer by the contract hire and leasing company to recognise the retailer's high standards of satisfaction.
ALD Automotive operates a fleet of more than 50,000 vehicles and relies on a network of 80 chosen franchised dealers to supply its company cars and vans.
Swansway Group Garages has its own dedicated fleet centre, which is headed by group fleet administration manager Pat Walker and group fleet sales manager Sarah Eccles. They are supported by fleet administrator Whitney Hughes, fleet sales assistant Justin Sheldon and a team of PDI and logistics experts and vehicle valeters.
The group supplies around 200 vehicles a year to ALD. On receiving the award, Pat Walker said: “Ensuring first class vehicle delivery is a real team effort. We meet regularly with ALD to ensure we deliver to their high standards. We are delighted that our efforts have been recognised with this award.”
ALD Automotive introduced its quarterly Dealer Awards last year with the aim of raising new vehicle delivery standards and to recognise its top franchised dealers.
