Bendix names Platinum distributors for 2014

BendixBendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC once again recognizes channel partners in its Premier Distributor Program (PDP) that have delivered exceptional performance for fleet customers across North America. This year, Bendix honors 43 top-performing companies earning the program’s highest ranking of platinum.

Platinum partners reflect the top 10 percent of distributors in the comprehensive Bendix independent aftermarket distributor network. Launched in 2007, the PDP has continued to strengthen Bendix’s distributor relations and its capacity to support the marketplace, the company says.

“Bendix relies on strong partnerships with our distributors to meet the needs of today’s heavy-duty aftermarket. Because of these partnerships, customers can count on having the right part in the right place at the right time, so they can keep their vehicles on the road and in the safest condition,” says Tom Otter, Bendix vice president, sales and marketing. “We are proud to have distributor partners who strive daily to provide the heavy-duty aftermarket with the highest levels of safety, performance, value, and post-sales support. Our PDP relationships are built on trust and teamwork, with fleets and owner-operators benefiting the most.”

Bendix says the Premier Distributor Program evaluates distributors in six key areas. Unlike other programs in the heavy-duty parts industry, the Bendix program utilizes objective performance measures as opposed to work volume alone. As a result, all Bendix distributors, regardless of size, have an equal opportunity to earn rewards and recognition.

Additionally, Bendix says its account managers work with distributors to optimize delivery and improve customer relationships by jointly constructing a business plan that addresses the PDP’s key measurement areas. The program’s holistic approach aids Bendix and its distributors by enabling two-way communication and setting clearly defined annual expectations.
