What's the news?
Frank Keane Volkswagen has just picked up the most prestigious award that a Volkswagen dealer can get; dealer of the year for 2016 (for vans and commercials, that is). Only open since 2012, with premises in Liffey Valley, Deansgrange, Ballsbridge, and Pottery Road, the Golden Pin award for best dealer is a major feather in the cap.
Commenting on the award, Ger Colwell, Commercial Vehicles Managaer for Frank Keane, said he was delighted to achieve such an accolade: "Winning retailer of the year for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is a great honour. Our objective at Frank Keane Volkswagen for 2016 was to become the number one destination for Commercial Vehicles in Ireland and that is exactly what we have achieved. It is always nice to win as it gives the whole team a real lift and recognises the team effort put in by all."
Congratulating the team at Frank Keane Volkswagen, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Director Alan Bateson said: "2016 has seen continued growth in Ireland for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles with strong results delivered through the recovering Irish economy. Our vans are proving more popular than ever, not just because of their unmatched quality and comfort, but also because of our leading residuals that are guaranteed, the only commercial vehicle brand in Ireland to do this. Also, there is the Customer-first service support provided from our dedicated van centre network in Ireland. 2016 was also a great year for Frank Keane Volkswagen and I would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work and determination. The great news is that we have automobileried this strong performance and phenomenal momentum into 2017 and with the recent launch of the all new Crafter, International Van of the Year 2017 we are focused on continued growth in the Irish market."
