A Cullingworth garage owner is celebrating after winning a coveted award.

Robin Luscombe’s Luscombe Suzuki Leeds showroom has scooped the car manufacturer’s Dealer of the Year accolade, for the second time in three years.

“To win Suzuki Dealer of the Year again is hugely important to us,” he said.

“It is not only recognition for all our hard work and determination, but, more importantly, it proves to us that what we are doing is right – for us, Suzuki and the customer.

“The victory is made all the sweeter by the fact this is the second time we have won in three years. And it was a double whammy for us that day as we smashed our 1,000th car barrier, for the first time since opening over three years ago.”

The dealership has been congratulated on its award success by Suzuki UK bosses.

Dale Wyatt, sales and marketing director, said: “This was a very competitive category and the winner is a real Suzuki stalwart.”

Marketing manager Tammy Charnley said: “The winner fully understands the importance of internet marketing and has fully exploited it. It was a great team effort by everyone involved and they are very deserving of the award.”
