PELLA, Iowa — In March, the North American Equipment Dealers Association released its 2013 Dealer-Manufacturer Relations Survey and inaugural Dealer’s Choice awards.
Vermeer Corp. received the top overall rating in this survey and was awarded “Dealer’s Choice” in the Ag/Shortline Manufacturer category.
“We are a member of an industry with a strong tradition of dealer support, and that makes receiving this award even more meaningful,” said Joe Michaels, Vermeer’s managing director of forage solutions.
The survey, which was conducted in January, asked dealers to rate up to five manufacturer lines that they carry in 12 key categories, including overall satisfaction, product quality, product availability and product technical support. Vermeer posted a total score of 76.52 out of 84 possible points.
NAEDA presented Vermeer with the award in a ceremony on April 18 at Vermeer headquarters in Pella, Iowa.
