WELSH dealership David Taylor Garages Ltd has been awarded the ‘Isuzu Dealer of the Year’ title.

It’s the fourth successive year the dealership, based in Crickhowell, Powys, has won the award.

The prestigious accolade is presented to the UK dealer that sells the highest number of Isuzu vehicles over the course of a year.

David Taylor Garages delivered more than 200 new vehicles to customers during 2011 – the first Isuzu dealership to achieve this landmark. The dealership already holds three records – first to sell 100 Isuzu Troopers, first to sell 100 Isuzu Rodeos and first to sell 100 Isuzu vehicles in a single month.

‘Isuzu offers a strong and versatile product range, and the Rodeo has been the perfect utility vehicle for the rugged terrain we have here in Wales,’ said dealer principal, Gene Taylor.

‘The strength of the product and the Isuzu brand have immense appeal to local farmers and forestry workers, which has allowed us to build up a large and loyal customer base in this predominantly agricultural community.

‘Winning the ‘Isuzu Dealer of the Year’ award for the fourth year running is excellent recognition for our hard-working staff and acknowledges not only our customers’ loyalty to the brand, but also the strong relationship we enjoy with Isuzu UK.’

An Isuzu dealer since 1988, David Taylor has sold more than 1,000 vehicles for the famous Japanese pick-up firm.

General manager of Isuzu UK, William Brown, added: ‘We are delighted to recognise one of our longest-standing and most successful dealerships with this exclusive award.

‘David Taylor Garages displays best practice in sales, customer relationship management and aftersales care. The business is a high profile example of the dedication and commitment to the brand that have contributed to consistent year-on-year sales growth for the Isuzu brand in the UK.’
