DUO Africa was awarded the title ‘Highly Commended Regional Dealer of the Year’ at the Powerscreen World Dealer Conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, US.
The three-day event from 17-19 March 2015 represented a major gathering of Powerscreen dealers and their customers, and was also a major opportunity for the crushing and screening equipment giant to demonstrate its latest machines and present awards to its most successful dealers over the past year.
The latest success for DUO Africa followed its 3rd place finish in 2013 out of 120 dealers, after only 10 months of trading. The awards are judged based on a dynamic scorecard which rewards distributors for superior achievement across a range of business disciplines including: providing excellent customer support, achieving machine and parts sales targets, financial management and commitment to the Powerscreen brand.
The ‘Highly Commended Regional Dealer of the Year’ award presented to DUO Africa was said to be purely down to the successful efforts of the team led by Luke Talbot. In the last three years DUO Africa has built an impressive portfolio and client base, established itself with offices in Ghana and Tanzania, and opened an African Service Centre carrying a comprehensive stock of Powerscreen and Terex spares.
As an official Powerscreen and Terex representative selling crushing, screening, washing and conveying equipment into Africa, DUO Africa has gained considerable experience in several African countries from multiple washing, crushing and screening projects in recent years.
Alex Moss – CEO, DUO Group, said: “Luke was delighted to receive the award on behalf of DUO Africa. It’s all credit to the team who have performed so well since the inception of the company. DUO Africa is underpinned by a great team of experienced engineers who provide support on the same levels offered to UK customers. We are all now looking forward to more future challenges in what are very exciting times for the DUO Group.”
