Duravit USA kicked off 2018 by honoring six of its leading sales partners at the company’s annual National Sales Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia. Honorees were selected based on achievements in major categories including product turnover, performance, and growth during the 2017 business year.
“Our sales partnerships are integral to Duravit’s continued success,” said Duravit USA President Tim Schroeder. “It’s an honor to recognize those individual and collective efforts made throughout 2017. We look forward to seeing what the upcoming year brings and furthering relationships with our extended Duravit family.”
The top honor, Distributor of the Year, was awarded to B.A. Robinson Co. Ltd. for the Canadian market and Central Plumbing for the U.S. market. B.A. Robinson Co. Ltd., a family owned distributor of plumbing and electrical products based out of Winnipeg, has generated growth for Duravit in the Western Canadian market. New York-based Central Plumbing was also awarded this prize for the American market.
The Overall Top Sales Region was awarded to ACS Marketing, a luxury kitchen and bath representative for Southern California and the states of Hawaii, Arizona, Southern Nevada and New Mexico, which garnered the highest marks nationwide for combined project and showroom growth.
Product turnover rate was the focus of the Showroom Market of the Year award, presented to Emerson Swan, a representative group serving the New England region. Jason King, Regional Sales manager for Duravit in Vancouver, received the Project Market of the Year Award - closing off 2017 with a number of project successes.
