A MOTOR group is celebrating after receiving two accolades within weeks of each other.

Snows Group, whose dealerships across the south include Volvo and SEAT businesses in Poole, has been voted one of the Daily Telegraph’s Top 1,000 companies for 2013.

It has seen revenue grow over at least three of the past four years and has outperformed its peers in the sector, both in revenue and by growth in employee numbers and square footage. Last month, Snows SEAT was named Fleet Dealer of the Year at the SEAT Dealer Network Conference.

Stephen Snow, chairman of Snows Group said: “As a business, we are constantly trying to improve on our performance, and having had a very successful year in 2013, we have even more exciting plans for expansion this year.”

The company plans more investment in its corporate division, with the arrival of a new corporate website, snowleasing.co.uk, planned for May.

Richard Betts, corporate sales manager, said: “The launch of Snows Leasing in quarter two will give us the opportunity and flexibility to offer a fully funded and supply service of all available manufacturers, for passenger cars and light commercials, to our existing and prospect customers.”

To be considered for inclusion in the Daily Telegraph’s Top 1,000 report, companies had to meet a range of criteria.

These included being UK-based, having a turnover of between £6m to £250m in the past 12 months and a minimum of three years in operation.
