Lookers Colchester & Chaplane has scooped an award at the Volvo Bodyshop & Retailer High Achiever Recognition Awards 2017.
The awards, held for the first time, recognise the achievements of the network’s approved bodyshops and their corresponding retailers.
Bodyshops were scored throughout 2017 according to a range of different criteria including performance and the extent to which the bodyshop has embraced the Volvo brand. Lookers Colchester & Chaplane took the ‘wildcard’ award as the best performing retailer and bodyshop after the manufacturer’s eight regional winners.
Taking place at Ruthin Castle in North Wales, the event brought together the best in the country.
Steve Plunkett, Volvo body and paint development manager, commented: “Competition was fierce throughout the year, and whilst Lookers Colchester & Chaplane were pipped at the post for the regional award we were delighted to present them with the wildcard award.
“It is vitally important that we recognise the work carried out by our network’s bodyshop partners all of which are an extremely valuable asset to our brand. Their hard work and dedication ensures a Volvo vehicle undergoing repairs meets our exacting standards and they are crucial in helping us maintain the brand’s reputation for safety and service.”
Added retailer principal at Lookers Colchester Miles Alvis: “We are delighted our bodyshop partner was recognised in this way, it reflects the company’s dedication to our brand and the close working partnership we have developed.”
Lookers Colchester & Chaplane contested the East Anglia and South Midlands region which was won by Donalds of Ipswich & DJ Mackenzies.
