Long Service Awards

The most important asset to The Colonial Motor Company Limited isn’t something you can put your hands on. It isn’t the vehicles, equipment or any physical Dealership. The most valuable part of our business are the people, the human capital that contain the knowledge and know-how to move the business forward over the next 100 years and beyond.

It’s the company’s greatest tradition and highest honour to award every employee a golden watch after 25 years continuous service.

It's also important to recognise that our records are incomplete. If you are aware of someone that should be on the list please use the form at the bottom of the page to make contact.
