The Hertfordshire-based company impressed its supplier with its â€œstrong in-store displays, excellent aftersales service and implementation of the monthly [Thule] electronic trade letterâ€.
â€œWe are very proud to receive this award,â€ said Sally Smyth, GTâ€™s director. â€œThule have a large display area in our showroom and this has clearly paid dividends.
â€œWe ensure that our staff are thoroughly knowledgeable on our full range of products and services available and also provide a complete fitting service.â€
Atlas Autos in Manchester and Epic Accessories of Leicester were close contenders for the title. Epic Accessories also won Window Display of the Month in August 2009.
Meanwhile, Bob Bleazard has been named Thuleâ€™s Salesman of the Year after achieving a 40% increase in sales over the last 12 months.
He said: â€œAll the agents found 2009 tricky for sales but the strength of the Thule brand has led us through to a stable overall outcome.
â€œConsidering the circumstances, we have all achieved well.â€
