Top industry award of ‘Farm Machinery Dealer of the Year’ was announced and presented to Lister Wilder at the annual Service Dealer Conference and Awards on Thursday, November 21 by Neil Benbow of sponsor Kramp UK.
The Awards, organised by the leading business magazine Service Dealer, are now in their 16th year and recognise outstanding sales, service advice and support by dealers in the garden machinery, professional turfcare machinery, farm machinery, forestry equipment and ATV/Quad industry. An integral part of the judging process for the Awards included customer feedback. High praise received for Lister Wilder included, ‘From purchasing new equipment, to having existing machinery serviced and repaired, we always receive a first-class and efficient service from Lister Wilder – most importantly at competitive prices.’
The judges said, ‘A highly thought of dealership established in 1947. Over the last few years they have been growing the dealership demonstrating a commitment to invest in training and innovation. The judges felt that they had also shown consistency in tough trading conditions by improving internal efficiencies and are now looking ahead more than ever.’
Steve Gibbs, Editor of Service Dealer magazine, said, ‘Each of our winning dealerships this year, across the product categories, have represented the finest examples of trusted, local businesses serving their communities. In these times of uncertainty, it’s reassuring that there are still independent, specialist companies out there, such as our Dealer of the Year winners, who can be relied upon to provide exemplary levels of customer service.’
