Stoneacre is proud to announce that our Volvo branch in Chesterfield has scooped a regional award at the Volvo Retailer and Approved Bodyshop High Achiever Recognition Awards for all their hard work during 2020.
Volvo has hosted these awards for four years now, with the intention of recognising the high achievements of the manufacturer’s approved Bodyshops and their appointed Retailers.
Choosing a winner is no easy feat; since the Retailers and Approved Bodyshops were scored during 2020 against a range of criteria – including performance standards, quality in repairs and the strength of their local working relationship.
Volvo hosted a winner’s event on the 3rd of August, which took place at the luxurious Hoar Cross Hotel in Burton on Trent. The awards ceremony brought together the best Volvo Retailers and Approved Bodyshop in the country from each of the eight regions, where all the overall winners were announced during the night.
Steve Plunkett, Volvo body and paint development manager, commented: “Competition was fierce throughout the year with Stoneacre Chesterfield battling it out with other top contenders, before they finished top in their region and we enjoyed presenting them with their regional award on the night.”
“It is vitally important that we recognise the valuable work being carried out by our network’s Retailer and Bodyshop partners, all of which are an extremely valuable asset to our brand. Their hard work and dedication ensure that 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.”
We couldn’t agree more! It is amazing to see that our branches are being recognised for all their team members continuous hard work each day. Commenting on Stoneacre’s success at the Volvo Retailer & Bodyshop awards, Group Bodyshop Manager at Stoneacre, Bob Scholfield, said:
‘We are delighted that Stoneacre Chesterfield has been recognised by Volvo for their outstanding service and enduring commitment to providing quality repair services that meet the demanding standards of Volvo Cars. This award is a true reflection of our continued dedication to Volvo and we believe more broadly reflects the skills and experience that we have across Stoneacre Motor Group in our body shop department.’
Big Win for Volvo:
In more recent news, Volvo has recently been crowned as Manufacturer of the Year in the highly prestigious 2021 Automotive Management (AM) Awards, for its in-demand products and progressive approach to electrification and digitalisation.
Commenting on the success, Stoneacre Grimsby Business Manager, Andy McInnes, said:
It is fantastic to see Volvo win ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ at the AM Awards, which is one of the most prestigious and respected award ceremonies within the industry.
“This award demonstrates Volvo’s commitment to its ambitious electrification plans, as society heads towards a more sustainable future on the road, ahead of the government’s plan to ban the sale of new pure-petrol and diesel cars in 2030.
“At Stoneacre Grimsby, we regularly encourage Grimsby drivers to look ahead to a more sustainable future with our range of fully electric and petrol-electric hybrid vehicles. We know that investing in anything new and unfamiliar can be a daunting experience, especially something as integral and important to everyday life as a car. As this award shows, our team of experts are here to offer their specialist knowledge and to answer any questions or concerns drivers may have about electrification.”
