Tassie’s top automotive operators claim awards

Tasmania’s finest automotive businesses and top apprentices have been honoured at the 2023 Automotive Industry Awards – the night of nights for the Victorian and Tasmanian automotive industry.

Four of the 16 businesses, business people and apprentices honoured at the awards, which were announced at the VACC and TACC President’s Gala Dinner in Melbourne on 13 May, are from Tasmania.

Ben Bailey from Hobart Performance Autos was named TACC Apprentice of the Year, and Brock Costello from Launceston Mazda won the TACC Progressive Excellence Award.

Cooper Automotive was named Best Large Business, and Autobody Solutions took home the award for Best Small Business.

An independent judge evaluated entries based on business management, workplace practices, customer service and environmental impacts. Finalists were randomly audited to ensure only the finest of the 5000-plus VACC and TACC members would win.

Tasmanian Automotive Chamber of Commerce state manager Bruce McIntosh said the awards demonstrate member and apprentice commitment to quality and customer service.

“It is a huge accolade to be named the best in Tasmania. These winners go above and beyond,
and have proved themselves more than worthy of these titles,” Mr McIntosh said.

“Congratulations to all of our 2023 winners and finalists. We recommend them to Tasmanian motorists.”
