The Repco store in Hobart was, once again, awarded the Aftermarket & Retailer of the Year Award at the 2019 Tasmanian Automobile Chamber of Commerce (TACC) Castrol Motor Industry Gala, held on the evening of Saturday 25 May at the iconic Wrest Point Casino in Sandy Bay.
The TACC Castrol Motor Industry Awards event was established in 2005 to formally recognise the many excellent automotive businesses in Tasmania who provide exceptional service to their customers, staff and local community.
“Repco Hobart is delighted to be the recipient of this award. Actually, we’ve won it for five of the past six years. It is the premiere Aftermarket parts award in Tasmania and hotly contested by the industry. We’re honoured to be recognised in this way”, Repco Area Manager (Vic/Tas), Dean Downham, said.
“We pride ourselves on successful non-financial factors such as safety and team training. We are really pleased that the TACC consider these aspects just as important as the traditional ones. We are looking forward to contesting this award again next year and hope to achieve further success as we advance our Connectivity and European Parts offerings throughout the year.”
TACC General Manager, Malcolm Little, said “the TACC Castrol Motor Industry Awards clearly demonstrate member dedication to quality and passion for the automotive industry. Winners of the TACC Castrol Motor Industry Awards really are the best in the Tasmanian automotive industry.”
Awards across 13 categories were presented throughout the evening including: achievement in body repair; aftermarket and retailing; automotive specialisation; new and used car dealer; engine reconditioning; towing; motorcycle dealer; small and large mechanical repair; tyre dealer; auto electrics; and underbody repair.
“TACC was overwhelmed by the number of entries received from businesses all over the state. Judging was not an easy task, as all applications were of such a high quality. It’s fantastic to see members wanting to share their stories and successes. Each entry was evaluated based on the business’s approach to customer service, professional development, industry improvement, and environmental and occupational health and safety, to ensure that only the best of the best would be declared as winners,” Malcolm said.
