Case IH announces dealers of the year

Presented by

Kenway & Clark, St George Machinery Centre, Three Rivers Machinery, Ag North and Intersales have been named as dealers of the year by Case IH in Australia

Kenway & Clark and St George Machinery Centre (SGMC) have claimed the top honours in Case IH’s 2021 dealer of the year awards – the first time both groups have taken out these awards.

With six branches in north west New South Wales and Queensland, Kenway & Clark was named Case IH Dealer of the Year (three branches or more), and dealer of the year for service.

Kenway & Clark dealer principal Peter Burey says the dealership was surprised and delighted with the wins.

"It’s something we’re very proud of, and is certainly a great reward for the hard work of our team, particularly in the last 18 months when there’s been some big changes in the business," he says.

"It is a team achievement and we want to make particular mention of our divisional managers who lead so well and put in so much effort."

In another first, SGMC in St George, Queensland, took out the award for Case IH dealer of the year (one or two branches), and dealer of the year – wholegoods.

SGMC dealer principal Craig Brimblecombe says the wins came as a "total shock" and he credited his team with the dealership’s outstanding results.

"There’s been a lot going on in the past 18 months with the new STAG venture, that’s meant I’ve had to be elsewhere a lot of the time, but the SGMC team has really put in when it’s counted," he says.

"They’ve worked so well as a team, and these awards are a credit to their commitment and hard work."

Case IH general manager for Australia/New Zealand Pete McCann says the winners showed a level of excellence and commitment to their customers.

"Kenway & Clark and SGMC are worthy winners of these titles this year, and their achievements can’t be overstated," he says.

"They have both assembled outstanding teams who are committed to consistently and rigorously maintaining the standards required to secure our two top dealer of the year awards.

"Both dealerships have taken on significant growth opportunities in the past few years and are to be commended on the way these changes have been incorporated and for the subsequent benefits to their customers."

Other winners for 2021 include Three Rivers Machinery (Warren, NSW) which took out dealer of the year – parts; Ag North in Ayr, Queensland, is dealer of the year – CNH Industrial Capital (one or two branches) and Intersales, with four branches in southern NSW, takes the title of dealer of the year – CNH Industrial Capital (three branches or more).

The dealer of the year results are based on a range of criteria, including finance and business management, performance in sales and marketing, and parts and servicing, Advanced Farming Systems Certification and total market share.
