Hino Dealer of the Year Awards

At the Hino Dealer of the Year Awards, Hino Motor Sales Australia named Brisbane-based Sci-Fleet as the Hino metropolitan dealer of the year and Bendigo Truck Centre as the regional dealer of the year for 2011.

The awards were announced at an official gala awards dinner in Sydney on Friday, 20 April 2012.

The metropolitan award was presented by President and Chief Operating Officer of Hino Australia, Steve Lotter. Sci-Fleet Dealer Principal, Craig Andersson, accepted the metropolitan award; and Dealer Principal of Bendigo Truck Centre, Steve Elliott, accepted the regional award.

Mr Lotter said the 2011 awards were particularly important considering the number of challenges faced throughout the year.

“These awards recognise the dedication of the Hino dealer network, especially in the wake of a number of significant natural disasters in 2011 – both at home and in Japan,” he said.

“Our dealers were all impacted by stock shortages following the devastating Japanese earthquake and tsunami, but their strong resolve and commitment to customers saw sales recover strongly.

“Craig and the team at Sci-Fleet are to be congratulated on their achievements – especially given the dealership was severely damaged in the January 2011 Brisbane floods.

“It was also pleasing to see Steve Elliott and his team at Bendigo win the regional dealer of the year award – their dealership continues to go from strength to strength and we congratulate them on their success.”

Both Mr Andersson and Mr Elliott recognised the hard work and dedication of their staff in winning their awards.
