Hino hands out Dealer of the Year awards

Hino Australia has named its metropolitan and regional dealers of the year for 2012 at an official Gala Awards dinner held in Sydney last week.

Brisbane-based Sci-Fleet Hino took out metro honours, while the Bendigo Truck Centre won the regional award. The two winners marked the first time the same two dealers have won the same awards two years in a row.

According to Hino Australia CEO Steve Lotter, the consecutive wins were an impressibe feat in a year of improved truck sales. “With a lot of trucks passing through the national Hino dealer network, it's a huge achievement to remain on top for a second year running,” Lotter said.

“2012 was an encouraging sales year with a large number of customers returning to the market to replace fleets that were aging prior to the global downturn. We saw sales volumes grow 26.5 per cent in 2012 over the previous year to a market share of 15.5 per cent, up from 13.6 per cent.”

The awards are judged on factors including sales performance, spare parts delivery and several criteria related to customer service.

Other award winners on the night include WA Hino Sales and Service, who won the award for top sales volume in Australia, while Vanderfield Hino Toowoomba achieved the highest regional sales.
