S&B celebrates transport dealer award from Mercedes-Benz 04 March 2011

Strong growth coupled with a family business ethos and commitment to customer service has won S&B Commercials the Mercedes-Benz Commercial Vehicle Dealer of the Year award for 2010.

S&B Commercials represents Mercedes-Benz in Hertfordshire, Essex and North and East London, from headquarters in Hatfield and other dealerships in Stansted and West Thurrock.

The company triumphed over 20 other franchisees nationwide to claim the manufacturer's prestigious dealer award for the third time, since taking on its Mercedes-Benz franchise in 1992.

S&B Commercials is one of Britain's biggest Mercedes-Benz dealers, with a turnover of some £80 million and a total staff of 295.

"Despite the very significant expansion we have been through over the last decade, we continue to operate as a family business with traditional values," comments chairman and founder Ron Holmes.

He adds: "We benefit from an exceptionally low rate of employee turnover and a stable team, which includes no fewer than eight staff members who have been with us for 30 years or more, and numerous instances of fathers and mothers working alongside their sons and daughters."

Ian Jones of Mercedes-Benz UK comments: "S & B plays a lead role within our commercial vehicle network. It has made significant private investments in customer support facilities in the north and east M25 corridor over recent years, and its dedication to the Mercedes-Benz brand is second to none."
