Double Scoop for Watling JCB at the UK Dealer Conference 2019


Watling JCB picked up the most sought-after award last month at the JCB UK and Ireland dealer conference after being named the JCB’s number one dealer.

Jim Bell made it a double whammy for the company after he picked up Salesman of the Year for 2018.

Watlings narrowly beat Gunn JCB to the award after making 2728 retails for the calendar year whilst Jim scooped up Salesman of the year after sealing the business of 86 new customers for the year.

Managing Director Richard Telfer described 2018 as a ‘tremendous year’ for the company and although the future is uncertain with Britain leaving the EU, Watling JCB are targeting similar success in 2019.

‘2018 can only be described as a tremendous year for us. I’d like to thank Sales Director Andy Raine and his team for all their hard work and commitment this year that has led to this success. The transition from being the smallest dealer in the UK to now being the world’s number one has been quite a journey and something we can say we are all proud of. This accolade would not have been achieved without the dedication of the rest of the Watling JCB team and I would like to thank them for all their hard work’.

Watling JCB have made a strong start to 2019 by visiting customers, organising Dig Days and showcasing new products.
