Toyota, Lexus and Hino awards

Toyota, Lexus and Hino Awards held in February 2015

Looking at all the accolades collected by our loyal Barloworld Toyota, Lexus an Hino team members, 2014 must have been a feeding frenzy. But in a market where buyers were able to pick from over 1 000 individual models available reminiscent of the schools of sardines travelling along the coast, there were also some big fish gulping op the spoils.

Doing business in 2014 was no sardine run, however our dealers yet again came up with the exceptional performance throughout the year expected from all of them.

Calvyn Hamman, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Toyota South Africa Motors said the Toyota Dealer Awards are always hotly contested and the competition was fierce.

Although we did not repeat the accolade of Toyota Dealer of the Year that was bestowed upon Barloworld Toyota Centurion last year, our dealers have again made their mark.

Among others, Pyramid of Excellence Certificates were issued to the following:
