Kia champions push the boat out
HIGHLAND Kia main dealers
Dicksons of Inverness was
presented with a painted
silver model of the world’s first
armoured battleship last week.
Why? Because, according to
South Korean business culture,
it represents the innovative
technology created by Kia and
reflects Dicksons’ outstanding
performance as UK Dealer of
the Year.
The award, a scale model of
a Korean turtle ship known as a
Geobukseon, was handed over
to Dicksons’ chairman Alistair
Scrimgeour by Kia UK business
development director Simon
Hetherington.
The Kia team from Dicksons
of Inverness fought off a
challenge from 1,500 outlets
to be chosen as one of the top
10 European franchises, in
addition to being the best Kia
dealership in Britain.
Mr Scrimgeour told
motorsnorth: “I was absolutely
delighted for everyone in the
Kia team here and have gone
round each and every one of
them personally, thanking
them for their hard work which
brought this incredible award
to the Highlands.”
The South Korean car
manufacturer’s Platinum
Dealership accolade was
awarded to the Inverness
retailer following a review of
stringent criteria based on new
car sales, customer satisfaction
and overall dealer excellence.
Only three out of 170 UK
dealers were nominated for
the European round of the
Platinum Awards, and none of
the other two English-based
outlets made the cut for the top
10 rankings.
The award reflects credit
on every member of the
Dicksons Kia set-up including
the after-sales team, service
manager Ian Mackenzie, sales
manager Mark Murray, and
sales executives Innes Lee and
Frazer Cameron.
The dealership sold 380 new
Kia cars in 12 months, almost a
decade after taking on Kia.
“It’s been incredibly
successful for us,” Mr
Scrimgeour said. “Kia’s
products are well-liked by our
customers, and their reliability
and features are just what
many people want.”
In addition to its new sales
in 2013, Dicksons sold more
than 180 used Kias as part of
the group’s overall annual sales
total for new and used cars of
1,540 vehicles.
Dicksons has a long track
record in the north, having
been established as Dicksons
of Forres in 1961 and moving
into Inverness in 1992.
Today it is main dealers for
Kia, Nissan and Suzuki from
premises at Carse Industrial
Estate in Inverness, and
operates a major car repair
and bodyshop centre along
with a servicing facility at St
Catherines Road in Forres.
