The VACC Industry Awards is an initiative of the Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce (VACC), the peak body for the state’s automotive industry. “High standards are important to the automotive industry, so VACC initiated the Industry Awards in 2016 to recognise and promote those businesses that set the bar high and go above and beyond,” VACC Executive Director, Geoff Gwilym, said. Awards in 21 categories were highly sought after by elite businesses across Victoria and included achievement in mechanical, auto electrical, and body repairs; car, motorcycle, commercial vehicle and truck sales; tyre retailing; engine reconditioning; towing; and aftermarket and retail business operations.
A record number of applications were received for the 2017 VACC Industry Awards. All were assessed by a panel of judges, whose decisions were examined by a standards expert, on customer service, training, occupational health and safety, environmental compliance, and more.”VACC acknowledges the very high standard of applications this year. In the face of strong competition, motorists can be assured that any business winning a VACC Industry Award this year is an excellent business, with much to recommend them. VACC congratulates all of the winners,” Mr Gwilym said.The VACC Industry Awards category winners were announced at a black tie gala evening, featuring master of ceremonies, Shane Jacobson, at the Crown Palladium.
Applications for the 2018 VACC Industry Awards open in October 2017.
