The best Iveco retailer has been revealed at the company’s Dealer of the Year Awards.

Meanwhile, the company has also celebrated the return of physical events with its dealer conference.

The transport sector continues to face huge challenges from all directions.

For example, rising fuel prices, driver shortages and border crossing delays.

However, truck registrations were up 13% in 2021 compared with 2020.

Therefore, Iveco was keen to focus on the positives and reward the hard work.

The pressures has seen the dealer network stretched to its limits.

Furthermore, the need to keep trucks on the road has never been more evident.

The system is helped by dealers such as Walton Summit Truck Centre, named as the top Iveco retailer.

Specifically it was crowned Iveco Dealer of the Year 2022 at the truck manufacturer’s dealer conference. 

Adam Harris, network director, Iveco said the Preston-based business had gone above and beyond. 

“With a strong network that always goes the extra mile for customers large and small, the decision is always difficult to make,” he explained. 

“However, this year’s winner encompasses all the attributes of success. 

“For example, Walton Summit Truck Centre has consistently delivered excellent customer service across the business. 

“Also, it is aligned with the Iveco brand through formidable passion and commitment.”

Responding, Nigel Perplus, commercial director, Walton Summit, said he was delighted.

“We are very proud to have been recognised as Iveco’s Dealer of the Year. 

“Walton Summit Truck Centre is home to a highly skilled team. 

“However, it remains a family-run business that takes great pride in the attention to detail we offer in our customer experience.”

Meanwhile, the Iveco UK dealer network is made up of 17 partners across the UK & Ireland.

In addition, there are 54 sales and 76 aftersales operations.
