Sturgess of Leicester and Sturgess Bodycraft have scooped a regional award at the Volvo Bodyshop & Retailer High Achiever Recognition Awards 2017.
The awards, held for the first time, recognise the achievements of the network’s approved bodyshops and their corresponding retailers.
Bodyshops were scored throughout 2017 according to a range of different criteria including performance and the extent to which the bodyshop has embraced the Volvo brand.
Taking place at Ruthin Castle in North Wales, the event brought together the best in the country.
Steve Plunkett, Volvo body and paint development manager, commented: “Competition was fierce throughout the year, but Sturgess of Leicester and Sturgess Bodycraft led their region from the start of the year and we were delighted to present them with the regional award for the Midlands. It is also very encouraging to see the bodyshop currently has three Volvo body and paint apprentices.
“It is vitally important that we recognise the work carried out by our network’s bodyshop partners all of which are an extremely valuable asset to our brand. Their hard work and dedication ensures a Volvo vehicle undergoing repairs meets our exacting standards and they are crucial in helping us maintain the brand’s reputation for safety and service.”
Added retailer principal at Sturgess of Leicester Julie Hirons: “We are delighted our bodyshop partner was recognised in this way, it reflects the company’s dedication to our brand and the close working partnership we have developed.”
