A MALTON-based car retailer has scooped a Volvo Regional Retailer of the Year award for the fourth time in six years.

Ray Chapman Motors was named as the North England and North Wales regional winner, acknowledging them as one of the best performing in the UK.

The award is presented to the retailer that excels on many fronts, including new and used car sales, parts and accessory sales and customer satisfaction.

Duncan Chapman, retailer principal at Ray Chapman Motors, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for the entire team, who work incredibly hard to deliver high levels of customer service. The fact we have been recognised by Volvo in its annual awards for the fourth time in six years reflects our commitment to the brand and to our customers.”

Jon Wakefield, managing director of Volvo Car UK, said: “2017 was another extremely successful year for Volvo in the UK, which could not have been achieved without the part played by our retailer network.

“The team at Ray Chapman has demonstrated outstanding levels of service and commitment to their customers on behalf of Volvo, and I hope they take immense pride in their award.”
