The Shed scores back to back honours at national awards

GLADSTONE business The Shed Company is celebrating after winning back to back honours at a national awards night for franchisees.

Gladstone scored the title of 2012 Dealer of the Year, following similar success in 2011.

Managing director Tim Churchill received the award, and said the win was a boost for Gladstone.

"It was so pleasing to have Gladstone up in lights on the big stage in front of my peers and the other Australian representatives," he said.

"We are very fortunate to have an outstanding group of skilled people as part of our team.

"This award is recognition of quality product, reliable back-up service and most importantly good customer service."

He also paid tribute to Gladstone's businesses.

"We have some very smart and influential business people in the region - it is pleasing that The Shed Company can join with the continued success of those other local businesses, as many can pride themselves about being 'Best in the Business'."

He said the business would aim to make it three-in-a-row in 2013.
