The Oban Times - - Motors -

The best per­form­ing Kia deal­ers were re­warded for out­stand­ing achieve­ments through­out 2016. The awards were pre­sented to the win­ning deal­er­ships at Kia Mo­tors ( UK) Ltd an­nual dealer con­fer­ence in Liver­pool on Jan­uary 10. With 187 deal­er­ships across the UK, th­ese awards high­lighted ex­cep­tional work. Dealer of the year 2016 went to Dick­sons of In­ver­ness, an award judged on a com­bi­na­tion of the re­sults for the sales, af­ter-sales and fam­ily-like care awards. Alis­dair Bar­nett, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Dick­sons of In­ver­ness, said: ‘I was hon­oured to be col­lect­ing the award on be­half of my hard-work­ing team and par­tic­u­larly pleased as Our team won it out of 187 Kia deal­ers in the UK. ‘We are, how­ever, in­debted to our loyal cus­tomers who have sup­ported us so well as one of the few re­main­ing fam­ily- owned deal­er­ships.’ Paul Philpott, pres­i­dent and chief ex­ec­u­tive of Kia Mo­tors ( UK) Ltd. com­mented: ‘It al­ways makes me ex­tremely proud to be part of Kia when I see the com­mit­ment our deal­er­ships and their staff show, and it’s a priv­i­lege to be able to recog­nise and re­ward the best per­form­ing deal­er­ships in a num­ber of cat­e­gories. Ev­ery­one within the Kia dealer net­work has worked very hard to achieve yet an­other record break­ing year in 2016 and with 10 new prod­ucts com­ing to the UK in 2017 we’re ex­cited to see the con­tin­ued suc­cesses that this brings.’ This year will see ex­cit­ing new de­vel­op­ments for Kia and its dealer net­work, with the launch of the all-new Rio and Pi­canto, as well as two all-new mod­els in seg­ments that Kia has not pre­vi­ously been in. 2017 is also the seven-year an­niver­sary of the launch of the seven-year war­ranty across the range.

A very pro­fes­sional out­fit, who of­fered a good price for my old car as part- ex­change for an ex­cel­lent 61 plate ve­hi­cle. Their ser­vice was fan­tas­tic and they were very happy to help. Kevin Webb – The Oban Times
