Case IH dealers have celebrated the annual awards for excellence at the presentation of the Dealer of the Year awards, with O'Connors taking home the title for three branches or more, and, for the first time, STAG Machinery claimed the award for one or two branches.
The Dealer of the Year results are based on a number of different criteria, including finance and business management, performance in sales and marketing, and parts and servicing, Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) Certification and total market share.
Newly appointed General Manager for Case IH ANZ, Aaron Bett, congratulated the winners, highlighting their exceptional efforts over the past year and continuing commitment to the brand and their customers.
"O'Connors has again demonstrated the standard of service and performance that has made them one of our top dealers for some time now. I commend the effort, expertise and commitment so prevalent within the entire O'Connors team and across their whole network," Aaron said.
"For STAG Machinery Group, winning one of the brand's top awards is great recognition for all the hard work that's gone into establishing the group's footprint in South-East Queensland in recent years and I look forward to seeing their ongoing growth and development.
"These dealers, and indeed all the dealers that have claimed awards this year, embody the strengths of our brand and represent the level of knowledge, service and support our customers have come to rely on," Aaron said.
