Houston’s SMP RV has taken home a prestigious award from the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association of BC (RVDABC).
The RV dealership took home the BC Dealer of the year award during the association’s annual general meeting last week.
According to SMP Spokesperson J.C. Brown, these awards are significant because they show recognition to dealers in the province.
He said that the company feels honoured and surprised to receive the award.
“We’re fairly new to the RV industry. We got in in 2014 with our first full year and been growing lots and enjoying the business and making a lot of changes in growth and so we were a little surprised but very honoured by the award,” Brown said.
He added that SMPRV has enjoyed the growth the business has had with a new dealership in Prince George and a new repair facility that is opening in Houston.
Brown said that there could be a number of factors as to why they won the award..
“I think it’s more our growth in the industry as a dealer, the addition to our communities where we are located and supporting local which has definitely always been a focus for SMP and now SMP RV,” he said.
Brown added that this award not only reflects the dealership but on the staff as well.
Meanwhile, SMP RV will be opening its new RV Repair Facility with a grand opening on Saturday (Sept 17).
