A CAR dealership in Huddersfield has won an award for the work done by staff at its bodyshop.

Polar Ford, based on St Andrews Road, Bradley Mills, was recognised by the Auto Body Professionals Club for providing outstanding customer service and consistently going the extra mile in a challenging environment.

Polar Ford, part of the Ford Retail Group, was named Franchised Bodyshop Group of the Year at the awards ceremony, which took place in front of an audience of 400 people.

The annual awards are held to acknowledge the work carried out within the bodyshop industry as well as recognising the challenges presented by an ever-changing market.

The ABP Club was founded in 2004 and now has more than 1,750 members – bodyshop professionals and individuals from all sectors of the industry such as insurers, accident managers, suppliers and trade bodies.

Garry Winckley, group aftersales director at Polar Ford, said: “We are delighted to receive this award.

“To receive recognition from your industry peers is something that we are tremendously proud of and it is testimony to the hard work and dedication shown by our staff to focus on delivering the highest possible standard of repair and customer service.”
