Galway's Toyota dealer Tony Burke Motors was on the podium at the recent SIMI Irish Motor Industry Awards in Dublin.
The Ballybrit-based dealership was awarded franchised aftersales operation of the year at the awards ceremony.
The awards honour businesses that have demonstrated excellence and best practice in their industry over the last year and are open to all sectors of the Irish Motor Industry with eight award categories honoured.
Tony Burke Motors director Tony Burke says the award is recognition for the company's focus on customer service.
"We are absolutely delighted to win the franchised aftersales operation of the year. All our team at Tony Burke Motors have worked extremely hard to develop a business ethos and culture within the dealership which lives and breathes customer service," he says.
"I would like to thank all our team at Tony Burke Motors and most importantly our loyal customers. I would also like to thank all the team at the SIMI and Bank of Ireland and extend our congratulations to all the other winners and nominees on the night.”
Alan Nolan, director general of the SIMI, says the awards are a celebration for the industry.
"They help to highlight the best practices in the motor industry, while awarding the professionalism and achievements of our SIMI Members," he says. "As an industry we face many challenges, Brexit, changing technology, WLTP, but at the core the customer always remains the centre of our focus and serving them to the best of our ability.
"Each year the competition has grown and to win this accolade is extra special for us as it recognises the efforts and dedication by this company to stand out from the competition.”
