Leading Volvo Truck & Bus dealer, Dennison Commercials, has been recognised UK-wide at the prestigious 2017 Commercial Motor Awards, which were held in Birmingham earlier this month. The local business was a finalist for two separate awards at the transport industry awards ceremony and went on to win the much respected ‘Franchised Dealer of the Year Award.’
The Commercial Motor Awards recognised Dennison Commercials as a company that stood out for its investment in people, sales performance and aftersales support and service. Dennison Commercials was the only company from Northern Ireland to be represented in the winner’s line-up on the evening.
Established in 1969, the company is now fast approaching its 50th year and still owned by the Dennison family, the Company now employs more than 200 staff over five sites in Ballyclare, Newry, Coleraine and Dungannon.
John Jenkins, Managing Director of Dennison Commercials commented on the success, “We are truly overwhelmed to have been recognised as Franchised Dealer of the Year for the UK. This award pays testament to our dedicated staff, without them, this would not have been possible.”
“There was particularly stiff competition for us in achieving this award, as we were up against alternative franchise dealers, and our fellow Volvo dealer Thomas Hardie Commercials. We work closely with Hardies, and all other Volvo Truck dealers to deliver the best level of customer service possible across the country, we are a tight team with an extensive UK / Ireland network. Finally and importantly, we recognise our customers, without their loyal support and continued business, we wouldn’t even be on the map,” added John.
Dennison Commercials has an extended range of complementary products and services to present itself as a ‘one stop shop’ for customers. Dennison Commercials services include new and used commercial vehicle sales and commercial truck rentals. Dennison Commercials also boast comprehensive aftersales services including, four fully-equipped workshops, a specialist Bodyshop, parts counters at every depot and specialist staff dedicated to giving customers the best service possible.
