The Etesia and Pellenc brands have had monumental success over the past twelve months and in recognition of this achievement, dealers from across the UK gathered at the 'Partners in Excellence' awards.
Over 60 dealers made the trip to the Heart of England Conference & Events Centre in Warwickshire, where they were invited to participate in a day of activities including blindfold driving, rifle shooting, quad-biking, off-road karting and 4x4 off-road driving.
Later that evening, the guests returned to the Heart of England for a short presentation on new products which will be launched in 2015, and three-course-meal before Les Malin, UK General Manager for Etesia, took centre stage to thank the dealers for their continued support. He then proceeded to announce the award winners. The awards were presented to the top performing dealerships; not solely in terms of sales but also in backup, sales and service support and the marketing of both brands.
The most prestigious award - Overall Partner in Excellence - went to Buckinghamshire based RT Machinery. Their phenomenal achievements over recent years, has seen them regular award winners at Etesia's 'Partners in Excellence' awards.
"Over the last few years, I've had to find something new to say about RT Machinery. Each time I think that they have reached their pinnacle - they seem to come back stronger and sell more.
"The effort that this company puts into selling both Etesia and Pellenc products driven by the managing director and rest of his family is truly outstanding," said Les.
In concluding the award ceremony, Les pinpointed the company's success in the UK market down to the hard work and commitment from all of the dealerships.
"Without the dealer network we have successfully built up, the Etesia and Pellenc brands wouldn't be the success that they are today. These awards have been designed to not only recognise the achievements of the award winners but all of our dealers," he said.
