Westmeath-based Volkswagen retailer Michael Moore has been awarded a prestigious gold pin by the German manufacturer - one of only three awards presented each year by Volkswagen Ireland, in recognition of significant achievements and outstanding dedication to the brand.
Michael Moore has been a Volkswagen retailer since 1981 and the Moore family has a long history in the motoring industry in the area, currently offering customers a comprehensive service from its ten-automobile showroom located on the Dublin Road, Athlone, Co. Westmeath.
Michael Moore Junior picked up the Gold Pin award from Volkswagen Ireland's brand director, Gerrit Heimburg, and Joerg Hertwig, the area sales manager for north-west Europe, at an awards ceremony in Kildare.
Michael Moore Junior, the dealer principal of the group, said: "We are delighted to receive such a prestigious honour from Volkswagen. It is a credit to the entire team here at Michael Moore Automobile Sales. We take pride in looking after every customer like they were a member of our own family."
