Bowater Toyota 2014 Toyota Dealer of the Year Award
The team at Bowater Toyota have cause to celebrate and want to share this wonderful news with the groups we partner with in the community, as you all are a big part of our story.
At the recent black tie annual Toyota Dealers Awards in Palmerston North Bowater Toyota came away with an armful of awards, including the prestigious 2014 Toyota Dealer of the Year award, a huge accolade for not only us, but also the entire region.
Toyota is the countries leading vehicle brand, and has been the number one choice for New Zealanders for close to 30 years, as well as one of our most trusted brands around, so it is a great honour to be considered the Dealer of the Year. Tony Bowater also headed to the stage on behalf of the team to collect the New Vehicle Excellence Cup as well as the Parts & Accessories Excellence Cup. In all Bowater Toyota were finalists in 6 of the 8 categories that we were eligible for, winning 3 of them, as well as collecting the 2014 Platinum Award and the 2014 Triple Crown Certificate.
