Fire, Flood and Now Stars!

Congratulations to Power Drive Automotive, winner of the 2016 Most Improved Award...
In what was billed as a night with the Stars on Hamilton Island, Power Drive Automotive shone bright taking out the 2016 Repco Authorised Service Most Improved Award.
Winner of the Most Improved Dealer of the year 2016 
In front of their industry peers at the Hamilton Island Convention Centre, Carol and Wayne Albisser-Bennett who are both qualified mechanics took to the stage to resounding applause to accept this coveted award.
Carol says “We are thrilled to be recognised by Repco and our industry.  We would like to thank our team who work tirelessly every day to deliver our customers expert technical expertise and top notch customer service.”   Wayne added, “It is humbling to know that our work to always strive for excellence in all aspects of our business has been recognised at a National level.  I know that this award will only serve as a catalyst to become even better.”
After losing their first workshop to a fire on Fathers Day 2006 and experiencing floods at their next the following Christmas, the new Knoxfield site is Carol and Wayne’s third location for Power Drive Automotive. Every move has allowed them to expand the range of services they offer with increasingly larger workshops filled with state of the art diagnostic equipment.
Mr Peter Webb, National Manager for Repco Authorised Service says.  “Carol and Wayne are such a worthy winner of this award.  Each year the standard of excellence in our network increases making it exceptionally difficult to select a winner. The team at Power Drive Automotive have embraced the essence of what it is to be a RAS member. It’s their constant innovation, a willingness to adapt and learn new business techniques and the vision to invest in their business’s future that sets them apart.  They are a credit not only to the RAS network, but also to independent automotive businesses in Australia.
