Ex­cel­lence recog­nised with award

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place - TERESA HAT­TAN

Beau­re­paires Mata­mata have re­ceived the very first Goodyear ex­cel­lence award, a na­tional award recog­nis­ing the ef­forts of Peter and Jan­ice How­land.

The owner/op­er­a­tors’ 30 plus years of ex­pe­ri­ence and knowl­edge was cel­e­brated with the couple be­ing pre­sented with the new award last week.

The award was to be pre­sented at the Goodyear Dun­lop na­tional con­fer­ence in Tahiti last month, but Peter and Jan­ice were un­able to at­tend due to Jan­ice’s leg be­ing in plas­ter.

As the couple couldn’t be at the con­fer­ence, Goodyear Dun­lop na­tional sales man­ager Chris Wheeler and re­gional ac­count man­ager Mark Findlay made the trip to Mata­mata last week to present the pair with the award.

Chris said recog­ni­tion the of award was

ex­cel­lence and achieve­ment with the Goodyear brand over a num­ber of years.

‘‘We have over 90 deal­ers around the coun­try the award could’ve been given to so it’s pretty pres­ti­gious and is cer­tainly quite a big deal for Jan­ice and Peter.

‘‘We wanted to recog­nise the amount of work they’ve put into our prod­ucts, ser­vices and brand over a num­ber of years. Their 30 plus years of ex­pe­ri­ence and knowl­edge should be cel­e­brated by us and the pub­lic,’’ Chris said.

Jan­ice said she and Peter were thrilled and hon­oured to re­ceive the award, es­pe­cially as it was the first of its kind to be awarded by Goodyear Dun­lop. ‘‘It’s nice to be recog­nised.’’ It was also recog­ni­tion of the couple’s loyal cus­tomers.

‘‘We pride our­selves on hav­ing the best prod­uct for the cus­tomer,’’ Jan­ice said.

The award will now take pride of place in the work­shop for cus­tomers and staff alike to see.
