MERCEDES-BENZ CARS UK NAMES INCHCAPE SOUTH MIDLANDS ITS RETAILER OF THE YEAR 2016

Mercedes-Benz Cars has named Inchcape South Midlands as Retailer of the Year at the annual Mercedes-Benz Retailer Awards, held in London this week.

The South Midlands arm of the Inchcape group, which has sites at Oxford, Coventry and Stratford-upon-Avon, won thanks to the customer-focused dedication of everyone across the business, from those on the reception desk to the valeters to the sales staff to the management team.

Commenting on the award, Gary Savage, CEO Mercedes-Benz Cars UK, said: “Inchcape South Midlands has had an exceptional year. That’s all the more impressive for the fact that this has been an outstanding year for all of our Retailer partners, making Inchcape the very best.

“They’ve achieved what they have by commitment and hard work across the company. They think and act like part of the Mercedes-Benz family, and embody the values which we encourage throughout the Mercedes-Benz Retailer Network.”

The smart Retailer of the Year was also named at the Awards, with Lookers of Sussex winning. Last year was the most successful yet for smart in the UK, with over 12,000 cars sold, and Lookers took every opportunity to play their part in this.

Gary Savage said, “Lookers put as big an effort into selling our smallest car as they did in everything else. This smart attitude helped achieve a big success.”

Other winners on the night were Inchcape (North West), which was named Service and Parts Team of the Year; Lancaster, which took the prize for Mercedes-AMG Team of the Year; and Sandown (Dorset and Wiltshire), which took Customer Service Team of the Year.

Mercedes-Benz Cars UK achieved yet another record year in 2016, with sales growth of 17%. This year has already set off to a phenomenal start: in January, Mercedes-Benz sold 13,003 cars – a 10% increase over January 2016.
