East Midlands Renault Trucks distributor, RH Commercial Vehicles (RHCV) is celebrating after being awarded a hat-trick of awards this weekend at the Annual Renault Trucks Dealer Awards in Birmingham.
RHCV, which has sites in Nottingham, Alfreton and Leicester, won the prestigious Renault Trucks Dealer of the Year for the first time, beating 60 other Renault Trucks dealers across the UK and Ireland. The firm also took home the Sales Team of the Year Award and Alfreton won the Aftermarket Team of the Year Award.
The annual awards, which took place at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham, celebrates excellence and performance in sales and aftermarket across the Renault Trucks network and was attended by 270 delegates at the ceremony last Friday.
RHCV has been selling, leasing, servicing and repairing heavy (HGV) and light commercial (LCV) vehicles across the East Midlands for four decades. The company employs 90 staff across sites on Lenton Lane in Nottingham, Cossington (Leics) and Cotes Park in Alfreton (Derbys).
Following a competitive judging process, RHCV won the Renault Trucks Dealer of the Year Award after successfully beating targets which included high MOT pass rates, roadside response and class leading excellence in customer service.
The event followed a successful year for RHCV whereby the sales team beat their targets by 168% against medium and heavy goods vehicles and by 255% against light commercial vehicle targets. The parts sales division in Alfreton has also grown by 95%, following an investment in premises and facilities and subsequent increased opening hours.
Nigel Baxter, Managing Director at RHCV said; “This is the first time that we have been recognised with so many awards and it demonstrates the excellent strength and ability of our team and of course the quality of our product and what we can offer our customers.
“The three awards are a true testament to the effort and hard work of each team and the collective success of each person is thoroughly deserved.
“I am delighted that the teams have been recognised by their peers and Renault Trucks management from both the UK and from Lyon, France. I look forward to continuing this success in 2017.”
Arne Knaben, Managing Director, Volvo Group Trucks UK and Ireland added: “RH Commercial Vehicles is a true diamond of the Renault Trucks dealer network and their success at our annual awards dinners is a testament to their hard work and customer dedication in all areas of their business. The Renault Trucks brand is gaining traction in the UK market due to the dedication, customer focus and teamwork of the network, RHCV embodies those values and bring the brand alive for their customers.”
