‘Last year, we serviced and repaired more than 235,000 vehicles at our dealerships in Hampshire, Sussex, Surrey, Kent and Devon.’
Technicians, service and parts advisors were honoured for their work. Jake Evans, who works at Hendy Honda Exeter, was named Apprentice of the Year and Paul Dittrich who works at Hendy Ford, Mazda and Kia in Eastleigh was named Service Manager of the Year.
