2019 TACC Motor Industry Awards

At a gala evening late last month at Hobart’s Wrest Point Casino, the 2019 TACC Castrol Motor Industry Awards were held.

The Tasmanian Automobile Chamber of Commerce (TACC) instituted the TACC Castrol Motor Industry Awards in 2005, to officially recognise the many excellent automotive businesses in Tasmania providing exceptional service to customers, staff and their local community.

TACC General Manager, Malcolm Little, said that the TACC Castrol Motor Industry Awards clearly demonstrate member dedication to quality and passion for the automotive industry.

“Winners of the TACC Castrol Motor Industry Awards really are the best in the Tasmanian automotive industry.”

Awards across 13 categories were presented including: achievement in body repair; aftermarket and retailing; automotive specialisation; new and used car dealer, engine reconditioning; towing; motorcycle dealer, small and large mechanical repair; tyre dealer; auto electrics; and underbody repair. And the winners were: 

    Auto Excellence

The annual Awards are open only to TACC members and offer recognition for all industry sectors in metro and regional areas, along with special categories for general membership.

Members are encouraged to enter the TACC Motor Industry Awards for the category or categories best suited to their business. The Awards are a great opportunity for outstanding businesses to showcase their capabilities and to market their expertise to consumers.

As part of the Awards campaign, finalists and category winners are promoted to the media and through the TACC/VACC website and social media channels. They also receive Awards collateral that can be showcased at their business premises and used for promotional purposes.

“TACC was overwhelmed by the number of entries received from all over the state. Judging was not an easy task, as all applications were of such a high quality. It’s fantastic to see members wanting to share their stories and successes,” added Little.

Each entry was evaluated based on the business’ approach to customer service, professional development, industry improvement and environmental and occupational health and safety, to ensure that only the best of the best would be announced as winners.

“TACC recommends the winning businesses to Tasmanian motorists. When seeking high quality expertise and excellent customer service, look no further than your local TACC member,” concluded Little.
