The AutoCare Network has been handed the Garage Concept Award at the CAT Awards 2020, which was recently held at The Lowry Hotel in Manchester.
Given out in nine categories, the CAT Awards include recognition for motor factors, garages, suppliers and individual achievements.
The Garage Concept Award was open to all garage schemes, fast-fits and autocentres and the shortlist was voted for by the readers of CAT Magazine.
Bob Ackroyd, managing director of UK trading groups said: “I am absolutely delighted for Maria, her team and the network members, this has taken many years of hard work to build what is the best and largest Garage network in the industry, they should be very proud.”
Maria McCullough, garage network manager for AutoCare said, “I am over the moon.
“Having been responsible for launching AutoCare in 2004, for me this a huge achievement both personally and professionally.
“Thank you to all our garages and the GROUPAUTO members for their continued support over the last 16 years and as we continue to lead the way for independent garages, here’s to a fantastic future.
“After a very successful 2019 and reaching 815 network garages, winning the Garage Concept Award was just the icing on the cake, it still hasn’t sunk in.
“We are very proud of what we have achieved.”
“I also wanted to highlight that throughout the 16 years of AutoCare in the UK, I have had the support of an amazing team of colleagues behind me, without them this award win would not have been possible.
