D&M Rural in Bordertown has been named South Australia’s CRT Business of the Year.

The award was presented at the CRT National Conference held in Adelaide over the weekend.

“The continued success and outstanding performance of D&M Rural is a true representation of the high standards which Directors Mark Dolling and Glen Mead uphold every day. Their reputation within their community but also within the CRT group is something to be admired,” explained Greg O’Neil, Executive General Manager of CRT on behalf of Ruralco Holdings Limited.

CRT SA State Manager, Tony Button, said it is no surprise that D&M Rural Bordertown had taken out the top award.

“Always striving to achieve the best results for their customers, suppliers and themselves, the CRT community know that D&M Rural Bordertown continue to deliver for all stakeholders. Their level of professionalism and reputation within their local community and the CRT group is of the highest standard,” Mr. Button said.

Glen Mead, Director of D&M Rural Bordertown, who operates the store with Mark Dolling spoke of the efforts of his team in securing the award.

“Everyone here at D&M Bordertown has worked extremely hard to ensure we provide the best possible service not only to our valued customers but also the wider community. Our business has continually adapted to ensure we have the latest products and best expertise to suit their every need,” Mr Mead said.

While they have consistently appeared as finalists over the years, Mr Mead was surprised by winning the top award.

“Knowing how many fantastic CRT businesses there are across SA, we are really proud to have taken out this award. I am extremely happy with the team’s efforts and what we have achieved,” Mr. Mead said.

Mark Slater, General Manager of the Co-Op in Colac, Victoria, said being crowned national CRT Business of the Year for 2017 had paid great dividends for his local business over the past 12 months.

“Winning the award last year was a great recognition for our business and the team,” Mr. Slater said.

“We’ve had a lot of great feedback from our customers and suppliers and it has given us a massive boost within our community.”
