Training & Development of our staff will be a key area, in order to ensure every TADG employee is equipped with all the tools to provide customers with the care and experience they deserve when going through the important decision of purchasing a new vehicle.” In addition to new vehicle sales, TADG will also focus on the used cars division and after-sales service experience to ensure the highest level of customer satisfaction.
