Pelican’s double achievement
Pelican Engineering Group, owner of Pelican Bus & Coach, has recently won two accolades.
Pelican DAF was named DAF Service Dealer of the Year at an event in Manchester, while sister company Pelican Engineering MAN was awarded the Dealer of the Year prize by MAN in the Large Dealer category.
Pelican Group after sales manager, Chris Murrell, said: “This is recognition of service levels we have refined over 99 years in the truck business that carry over to set the standards for the service we give to our bus and coach customers. Whilst coach operators primarily associate us with Yutong, our MAN dealership works closely with the Neoplan sales team and offers full service and parts support to any MAN or Neoplan user. Pelican DAF is able to work on any DAF powered coach regardless of brand. Our ability to respond to customer needs, whilst working 24/7 362 days per year illustrates our total commitment to all of our customers, be they truck, bus or coach operators.”
Group MD, Richard Crump, said: “To win either of these awards is a major achievement, especially when you consider the very high standards of all dealers in both networks. To win both in the same year is almost unheard of. It’s a testament to the superb team of people we have working in both dealerships and across the Group.”
In 2017, Pelican DAF prepared and submitted 680 vehicles for MOT test and achieved a 100% pass rate for the full year.
