Mercedes-Benz dealer group takes home Showroom of the Year trophy

The Rygor team at the Commercial Motor AwardsWestbury-based Mercedes-Benz dealer group Rygor has won the title of Showroom of the Year at the prestigious Commercial Motor Awards.

The award wrapped up a year in which directors Tim Stacey, Graham Drake and Paul Reed celebrated 10 years as owners of the business.

Rygor has 11 branches across the south of England, and is the UK's largest Mercedes-Benz commercial dealer group. Its Gloucester showroom, for which it won the award, opened in 2016.

Managing director Tim Stacey said: “We were thrilled to have been shortlisted in four categories this year and even more delighted to walk away as the winners of the Showroom of the Year category.”

“Having started life in the 1960s as a family haulage business in the Mendips, today we employ more than 700 team members with 11 authorised Mercedes-Benz Vans and Mercedes-Benz Trucks sales and after sales branches across the UK.

"The growth of our business has been substantial over the past 10 years and the launch of our Gloucester branch in late 2016 was a significant part of this growth as it represented a huge investment not only in the business and the Gloucester area, but crucially in our fantastic team.

Rygor was also shortlisted in the Apprentice of the Year, Franchised Dealer of the Year, and Sales Team of the Year categories.
