MASCO Ltd. is riding high after being awarded the title of 'Scooter Franchise of the Year' at the 2013 British Dealer Awards, which were held in Birmingham during Motorcycle Expo this week.

Ian Kidson, managing director of MASCO Ltd, the sole UK importer for KYMCO Scooters, Motorcycles and ATV'S, described the achievement as, "A fantastic result and an excellent way in which to start the New Year."

"At MASCO we are committed to excellent customer service and providing full support to our dealer network. This is what makes the award particularly special, because it has been voted for by our dealers, the people who trust in our products and service and who also recognise the efforts of all our staff," he said.

"We are absolutely thrilled and proud to have been recognised in this way and would like to sincerely thank all those dealers who voted for us.

"Since 1998 when MASCO Ltd. became the sole UK importer for KYMCO, the company has achieved continued success, including year on year sales growth and regular top ten sales for mopeds and 125's. Today, 15 years on, KYMCO is one of the most respected brands in the UK motorcycle & scooter industry."
