Stertil-Koni announced Monday that six distributors in its North American network have been recognized as Aspire Program awardees based on their 2017 sales growth.
The coveted Aspire Program, now entering its third year, salutes Stertil-Koni distributors who have achieved marked incremental sales gains on a year-over-year basis, the company says, thereby placing them in a new, heightened level of performance. Recipients were recognized at Stertil-Koni’s recent 22nd Annual Distributor Meeting.
“It is gratifying to be recognized by Stertil-Koni for the hard work that Reeder Distributors has put forth over the past few years to get to the point where we are today,” says Chris Bussey, regional sales manager with Reeder Distributors, one of the businesses honored. “It has been a great partnership between Reeder and Stertil-Koni and we greatly appreciate the opportunity to grow alongside them.”
Planning and goal-setting has been a big part of the collective success. Bussey adds, “Reeder Distributors has taken a deliberate and focused approach toward the heavy-duty market within the Texas and Louisiana region. We, together with Stertil-Koni USA, developed a team to target this market.”
Another Aspire Program Award recipient, Kayla Fay, president of Northwest Lifts, echoed the sentiment, saying, “We are honored to receive this award. It really confirms our hard work is paying off.”
In all, six independent Stertil-Koni exclusive distributors received the Aspire Program Award. These were:
- Midwest Equipment Specialists – McFarland, Wis.
- Northwest Lift & Equipment – Hillsboro, Ore.
- Reeder Distributors Inc. – Fort Worth, Texas
- USA Lifts – Bloomington, Ill.
- Southwest Lift & Equipment – San Bernardino, Calif.
- Vendor Network – Bronxville, N.Y.
“Stertil-Koni distributors are a highly trained, focused and an extremely service-oriented group. It is my distinct pleasure to honor those who have had an outstanding year of growth,” says Stertil-Koni President Dr. Jean DellAmore. “I also want to thank all of our distributors for their contributions in 2017. Together, they truly provide our expanding customer base with what we believe is the broadest range of high quality, high performance heavy duty vehicle lifting systems in the industry – all combined with exceptional customer service.”
Dr. DellAmore adds, “Through the years, our partnership with our distributors has only grown stronger and has helped to solidify our leadership position in the industry. We have the very best heavy duty vehicle lift distributors in North America– each of whom we are proud to say is exclusive to Stertil-Koni in our sector.”
