It was an excellent evening for TTC as they also received two further awards for European Parts Distributor and Service Distributor of the Year. TH White Ltd, the Tetbury based dealer with further depots in Reading and Redditch won two awards, UK Parts Dealer and UK Service Dealer of the Year.
Speaking at the Gala Dinner David Withers commented, "The Distributor of the Year award recognises outstanding performance in all sectors of the business including service, parts, sales and marketing. TTC has been operating for just over a year following a management buyout at our former German subsidiary. They have demonstrated outstanding performance across all market sectors and product ranges and have also shown tremendous commitment to Ransomes Jacobsen, and without exception they continue to dominate their territory. They thoroughly deserve the title of Ransomes Jacobsen Distributor of the Year.
