Case IH has announced the winners of its 2024 Dealer of the Year Awards, with Larwoods Ag and Intersales claiming the top honours.

Intersales in NSW has claimed the award for Case IH Dealer of the Year (three branches or more). The company has branches in Temora, Griffith, Albury-Wodonga and Wagga Wagga.

Other finalists were O'Connors (NSW and Victoria) and Ramsey Brothers (South Australia).

The Dealer of the Year results are based on a range of criteria, including finance and business management, performance in sales and marketing, and parts and servicing, precision technology and total market share.

Intersales CEO Amanda Blachut said the award was a testament to the hard work of their whole team.

“The dedication the team put towards training, team collaboration and knocking down barriers between departments is to be admired,” she said.

“We were up against some fierce competition so this win was unbelievably unexpected.”

Larwoods Ag Services, who are based in Kadina, South Australia, has been awarded Case IH Dealer of the Year (one to two branches).

They came out ahead of finalists Ronco Motors with branches in South Australia and Victoria, and Farmers Centre in Western Australia.

Larwoods Ag director Mathew East said it was a fantastic effort by the whole team, but particularly dealer principal Scott Mercer.

Mathew said the business had faced some challenges but with the help of CNH, they have been able to turn things around.

Receiving the award was a prime example of the team’s willingness to take on board feedback and evolve their business to better serve their customers.
