Ramsey Bros took home the Case IH Dealer of the Year Award (for three or more branches). According to Case IH Australia brand leader Bruce Healy, the business was awarded for its excellent branch presentations and strong sales.

"All Ramsey Bros’ branches are well presented, with a fresh look and feel. The business has strong sales procedures and more potential for growth," he says.

Established in 1950, the family-owned business has six branches and a strong share of the SA market. The dealership is also very community focused, supporting local sporting clubs, schools and groups, and has been a Gold Sponsor of the Variety Bash and Variety 4WD Challenge children’s charity fundraising events since 2014.

Ramsey Bros general manager Mark Ward says the company is honoured to be a part of the Case IH dealer network and to receive this prestigious award.

"We’ve had a very consistent year which reflects the exceptional team work of our 84 staff across our six branches," he says.  

Agricultural Requirements won the Dealer of the Year Award for a business with one or two branches for its consistent workshop service which Case IH Australia brand leader Bruce Healy says continues to set the standard in Queensland’s Lockyer Valley.

Established in Lockyer Valley in 1948, the high-volume business has exceptional market penetration, achieved through proactive sales planning with their customers to ensure they get the machine best suited to their requirements.

Strong staff retention and high morale contribute to its performance, with Case IH the number one tractor brand in the Lockyer Valley.

Agricultural Requirements general manager Noel Baines says the company has its staff to thank for the award.

"We’re proud to employ 42 local people within our dealership and it’s through their dedication and team work that we’ve been able to achieve this award," he says.

Finalists for the major Dealer of the Year Award (for three or more branches) were O’Connors in Victoria, Kenway & Clark in New South Wales and Wideland Ag across New South Wales and Queensland.

Finalists for Dealer of the Year Award (for one or two branches) were Rocky River Ag Services in South Australia, Intersales in New South Wales and Farmers Centre WA Pty Ltd in Western Australia.

CNH Industrial Capital Dealer of the Year was won by Farmers Centre WA while St George Machinery Centre in Queensland took home the Case IH Parts & Service Dealer of the Year award.

McDonald Murphy Machinery of Bundaberg, Queensland, won the Farmall Sales Achievement Award.

According to Case IH, the Bundaberg region is the Farmall "capital of Australia", with McDonald Murphy Machinery having sold the most Farmall tractors of any Case IH dealership in Australia in 2015.
