The awards, now in their fourth year recognise the outstanding achievements of the Volvo network’s approved bodyshops and retailers. Nominees were scored throughout 2020 on a range of different criteria, including performance and the strength of their local working relationships. A winner’s event will take place in Burton-upon-Trent in June and will bring together the best in the country from each of the eight regions, with an overall winner announced on the night.

Steve Plunkett, Volvo body and paint development manager, commented: “Competition was fierce throughout the year with Snows Volvo and Snows Accident Repair Centre battling it out with other top contenders before finishing top in their region. We look forward to presenting them with their regional award very soon.”

Plunkett continued: “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 extremely valuable assets to our brand. Their hard work and dedication ensure a Volvo vehicle undergoing repairs meets our exacting standards. They are also crucial in helping us maintain the brand’s reputation for safety and service.”

Snows Volvo general manager Mark Austin, said: “We are delighted that Snows Volvo Winchester and SARC have both been recognised in this way. The award reflects both company’s dedication to the Volvo brand and the close working partnership that we have developed.”
