Powerstar Dealers across South Africa and sub-Saharan Africa gathered in Sandton, Johannesburg, recently for the annual Powerstar Dealer of the Year Awards.
This prestigious ceremony takes place annually to recognise the excellence achieved by Powerstar dealers and their staff who work efficiently to ensure the success of the Powerstar brand. With Powerstar having recently introduced its new model, the FT Series, selected FT dealers were recognised for their sales achievements this year.
The top prize, Powerstar Dealer of the Year, is presented to the dealer that achieves the best overall performance across a wide range of areas, including sales, service and parts. This year, Powerstar Ermelo proved to be a true ambassador for the Powerstar truck brand and was awarded the coveted title.
Branch manager Marelize Potgieter is extremely proud of this outstanding achievement and is full of praise for her dedicated and professional team of employees.
On handing over the FT Series category award, Bob Wang, CEO of Ever Star Industries (ESI), confirmed these dealers had increased their customer volume in this segment by focusing on sourcing new customers, while expanding their customer service values to retain their existing customer base.
The FT Series category top prize was awarded to Powerstar N7, as Top FT Sales Dealer 2018.
Most Improved FT Sales Dealer 2018 was awarded to Powerstar Kelston.
“I would like to extend my congratulations to Powerstar Ermelo, for maintaining efficiency throughout the year, which resulted in amazing efforts with them leading the segment in a very competitive market. Further congratulations to our FT Dealers, Powerstar N7 and Powerstar Kelston, for their outstanding sales achievements,” Wang comments.
“Powerstar recognises that 2018 was an extremely challenging year for the truck industry. At Powerstar, we recognise our dealer’s dedication, passion and hard work to achieve these excellent records in sales, aftersales and customer satisfaction.
