IVECO Australia Managing Director, Michael May, said he was impressed with the dedication and resilience of the IVECO Dealer Network in 2021 amidst difficult operating conditions.
“As an organisation we navigated the drawn-out effects of COVID, and dealt with the subsequent supply chain challenges that came as a result of temporary manufacturing shutdowns and health and safety protocols,” he said
“More than ever our relationship with the Dealer Network was critical, and together we worked hard to overcome these challenges, achieving positive sales results and strong year-on-year growth, while at the same time supporting our customers to keep their fleets on the road and contributing to the growing freight task,” said May.
“I congratulate all Dealer of the Year winners and thank them for the strong contribution they made to IVECO in 2021.”
IVECO also acknowledged long-time dealership, Bendigo Truck Centre, who recently marked its 25th anniversary as an IVECO Dealer.
