The Luton Škoda retailer, Forward Motors, has been short-listed in the "Small Dealership Category" of the AM Magazine Awards 2003. This is the first time a Škoda retailer has been nominated for an AM Award.
John Thompsett, Retailer Principal, said; " We are extremely excited that our business has reached the final six in this category. To nominate our business for this award I submitted a presentation to AM Magazine. This outlined how I feel our business deserves recognition in this category and told our story about re-shaping, relocating and growing a business."
Since John Thompsett acquired the business in 2000, the retailer has made a lot of successful changes, as outlined in its presentation to AM. The magazine chose Forward Motors to go through to the final few for this award as it has been successful in transforming into a modern, progressive motor business. John continues; " In slightly under two years we have doubled the number of staff we employ and moved from a cramped site to a modern well-equipped, customer and environment friendly facility on the northern edge of the town. "
Located at Sundon Business Park in Luton, Forward Motors have the entire model range of Škoda vehicles available, including the new Octavia vRS Estate and Fabia 1.2 litre engine, priced at £15,800 and £6,995 respectively.
The results will be announced on Thursday 27th February, when the Awards Ceremony will take place in Birmingham.Published 22 February 2003
