Maritime dealer named Volvo’s best

GREENSBORO, N.C. — MacKay’s Volvo Truck Centre, Truro, N.S. was named Canadian Dealer of the Year for 2007 by the truckmaker.

David MacKay is the owner and dealer principal of the dealership, which was founded in 1980 by David and his father, Louis MacKay. It has grown since from three service bays to 19 bays and a body shop, and it employs 40 people. MacKay’s has been a Volvo dealership since 1991.

Volvo’s Dealer of the Year award honors each dealership’s entire organization and its employees for overall accomplishment and performance. The award is based upon a number of factors, including new truck sales, parts sales, financial performance, and customer satisfaction scores.

Hudson County Motors, Secaucus, N.J. won recognition as top North American dealership in two categories in 2007: New Truck Sales and Volvo Engine Sales. The award in both of these categories is based on performance versus business plan, as well as sales volume.

“Volvo’s dealer network is stronger than ever before and the entire Volvo organization is focused on delivering world-class customer satisfaction,” said Per Carlsson, president and CEO of Volvo Trucks North America. “I salute our award-winning dealers for their performance, but more importantly for their dedication to their customers.”
