Twenty-two automotive businesses across Victoria were announced as winners at the 2017 VACC Industry Awards ceremony held in Melbourne on 20 May.
The VACC Industry Awards is an initiative designed to reward VACC member businesses that meet and exceed the high standards set by the Awards.
“High standards are important to the automotive industry, so VACC initiated the Industry Awards to recognise and promote those businesses who set the bar high and go above and beyond,” said VACC Executive Director, Geoff Gwilym.
Awards in 21 categories were highly sought after by elite businesses across Victoria and included achievement in mechanical and body repairs; car, motorcycle and commercial vehicle sales; tyre retailing; engine reconditioning; towing; and aftermarket & retail business operations.
Almost 100 applications were received for the 2017 VACC Industry Awards. All were assessed by a panel of judges, whose decisions were audited by a standards expert, on customer service, training, occupational health and safety, environmental compliance, and more.
“VACC acknowledges the high calibre of all applications. In the face of strong competition, motorists can be assured that any business winning a VACC Industry Award this year is a truly fine business. VACC congratulates every one of them,” said Mr Gwilym.
The VACC Industry Awards category winners were announced at a black tie gala evening, featuring master of ceremonies, Shane Jacobson, on Saturday night at the Crown Palladium.
Applications for the 2018 VACC Industry Awards open in October 2017.
