ISUZU’S North­ern Ire­land deal­ers were hon­oured in end-of-year cel­e­bra­tions to mark an­other record year for the Brand in the UK and the Prov­ince. UK and Ire­land Di­rec­tors and se­nior man­age­ment flew in to Belfast to con­grat­u­late the NI Isuzu spe­cial­ists in per­son at a spe­cial Awards din­ner.

“We are de­lighted to recog­nise the outstanding hard work and com­mit­ment of our NI dealer part­ners” said Isuzu UK Di­rec­tor Paul He­garty “Our deal­ers here have been very suc­cess­ful this year again in driv­ing the Brand fur­ther for­wards, Isuzu D-max sales in NI run at the strong­est rate in the UK.”

“2016 Isuzu Dealer of the Year is de­servedly John Barr Cars. John Barr is our most con­sis­tently strong sales per­former, 2016 has been an­other fantastic year with the Brand, all credit to John Barr’s team in Crum­lin — they re­ally set the stan­dard for oth­ers to fol­low.”

“An­other ma­jor cat­e­gory for us is Fleet Dealer of the Year,” said He­garty

“We are de­lighted to recog­nise Eakin Bros Claudy’s outstanding con­tri­bu­tion in this sec­tor. We have been de­lighted with the many new cor­po­rate cus­tomers they have brought into Isuzu. Very well done Peter Eakin and his team.”

Isuzu Ire­land’s Tech­ni­cal Man­ager Noel Hughes pre­sented the After­sales Dealer of the Year Award to Noel Gorm­ley of Gorm­ley Mo­tors in Dun­gan­non, com­ment­ing: “Many com­peti­tors mea­sure dealer after­sales per­for­mance by the num­ber of com­plaints re­ceived.

“At Isuzu we count let­ters of praise and the ac­co­lades have been flow­ing again this year for Gorm­ley Mo­tors. This is hard-earned recog­ni­tion for look­ing af­ter our mu­tual cus­tomers.”

Michael Tur­tle of Wil­sons of Rathkenny was recog­nised as “Most Im­proved Dealer” in 2016 and drew sig­nif­i­cant praise from He­garty.

“Michael has re­built our busi­ness in Bal­ly­mena to a point where Wil­sons now rank amongst the top per­form­ing deal­ers in the UK on a con­sis­tent ba­sis.

“He has es­tab­lished a strong pres­ence in cor­po­rate and re­tail sales, and in 2016 has worked hard at the marts to en­sure Wil­sons and Isuzu are the farm­ers’ first choice for a pick-up.”

UK Di­rec­tor He­garty con­cluded: “Over­all it’s been yet an­other record year for Isuzu and each of our deal­ers in NI, I’d like to take this chance to thank all six spe­cial­ists for their ef­forts and outstanding con­tri­bu­tions, and of course to our many North­ern Ire­land cus­tomers, old and new.”
