Volvo Tucks names top dealers

Volvo Trucks Southern Africa recently named its best dealers, in recognition of the high quality performances achieved by its network during 2016. Truck Centre Jet Park was named dealer of the year, South Africa, with Beaufort West named small dealer of the year for South Africa. Dealer of the year for Southern Africa was AutoSueco Namibia.

“Our dealers of the year represent world-class quality in every facet of their businesses, especially in providing customer service that goes beyond the expected,” says Torbjörn Christensson, president of Volvo Group Southern Africa. “They are total transport solution providers, with our award-winning products forming the core of their offering, supported by innovative aftermarket and extended services that make a real difference to fleet owners’ businesses and profitability.”

The company has 30 dealer sites across southern and eastern Africa, with new locations in Alrode and Angola completed in 2016 and fully operational. New facilities are being developed in Pinetown, Port Elizabeth, Kenya and Zambia. Volvo also has representative offices in Zambia, Ethiopia, East Africa and Angola to bring support closer to customers in those markets.

“Our dealer awards recognise excellence within our network and serves as a motivator to reach new heights in the year to come,” concludes Christensson.
