Added, Chris Bussey, regional sales manager at Reeder Distributors Inc., “Being an Aspire Award recipient is a very rewarding experience. It is recognition by Stertil-Koni for an extremely successful year between Reeder Distributors, Inc. and Stertil-Koni heavy duty vehicle lifts. It also shows the strong belief that Reeder Distributors has in the Stertil-Koni product line and the high level of importance and focus that our organization places on the heavy duty lifting market throughout Texas and Louisiana.”
Celebrating its second Aspire Program Award was Westvac Industrial Ltd. The company’s Sales Manager, Shane Vermeulen noted: “Even though 2018 was a somewhat sluggish year for the Canadian economy, we diversified ourselves and our opportunities. We were also fortunate to have a large volume of complex projects we were pursuing. Many of these take years to develop and we approached each stage in the right way, involving members of our team and working directly with Stertil-Koni to obtain these opportunities and earn these orders.”
In conclusion, DellAmore said, “At Stertil Koni, the customer is always our top priority. It’s also a philosophy embraced by our distributors, each of which is exclusive in their respective territory. And, it is precisely that passion for a superior product, people and support that has helped catapult Stertil-Koni and our distributors to the top of the heavy duty vehicle lifting industry.”
