Mercury takes top dealers on China study tour
Sydney's TR Marine World named as top Australian dealer for 2015.
Leading Mercury dealers and distributors from Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific went on a study tour of China where the winners of the 2015 Mercury dealer awards were also announced.
Dealers earned a ticket for the eight-day trip based on their year-on-year sales growth in 2015.
“As Mercury continues to invest in product and plants around the globe, this Asia study tour to Brunswick and Mercury locations was really important,” said Will Sangster, general manager of Mercury ANZP.
“It is vital to make sure our key dealers and boat builders share this experience and bring back vital knowledge to pass on the Mercury difference to consumers, through their own businesses.”
While on the tour, the winners of Mercury’s annual Dealer Awards were revealed at a special ceremony. Winner of the overall Dealer of the Year for Australia was TR Marine World in Sydney which also took out the NSW award for the third year in a row.
“These are great businesses we’re very proud to be associated with,” said Sangster. “To decide these awards we look closely at a dealership’s entire business, not just their sales, so I congratulate Ian and his team at TR Marine World for their continued drive and growth in a very competitive market.”
