UK dealers earn global award

Three Nissan dealerships in the UK have been presented with the carmaker’s highest worldwide honour – a Nissan Global Award.

Glyn Hopkin Nissan in Chelmsford, Hammond Nissan in Halesworth, Suffolk, and Chorley Nissan in Chorley, Lancashire, were among just 160 dealerships worldwide to receive the honour in 2016.

In the case of Glyn Hopkin Chelmsford it was the dealership’s third Nissan Global Award in successive years – a feat believed to be world first.

The awards recognise the dealerships’ outstanding sales and aftersales performance, particularly in terms of new car sales and customer satisfaction.

Announcing the winners, James Wright, managing director of Nissan Motor (GB), said, ‘Winning a Nissan Global Award is an outstanding achievement that very few dealerships in the world ever actually achieve.

‘To have three winners in the UK is fantastic and a real testament to the hard work and dedication of each and every team member at those dealerships. They should be very proud of what they have accomplished.

‘In the case of Glyn Hopkin Chelmsford this award is particularly special. Winning one Nissan Global Award is a huge achievement in itself but to win three in as many years is phenomenal.’
