1 May 2007 — Des Plaines (IL): TriMega Purchasing Association recognised excellence among its dealers last week at its eleventh annual one-on-one meeting in Palm Springs.
Sanford Brands was named winner of TriMega’s Dealer’s Choice Award for 2006. Sanford, which also picked up the award last year, was again recognised by TriMega members for providing "outstanding support during 2006 in the areas of competitive pricing, support for bids, service levels, strong customer service, effective local representation, and creative marketing support".
Special dealer awards for outstanding support and growth of purchases of TriMega supplier products during the past year were presented to Rudolph’s Office & Computer Supply, Suburban Stationers, and Garvey’s Office Products for greatest percentage growth. Gulf Coast Office Products, A-Z Office Resource and Guernsey Office Products were recognised for the greatest dollar growth.
Business owners from more than 40 of the country’s leading office product dealerships and national representatives from more than 35 industry suppliers attended the event, which included individual business development meetings and comprehensive business reviews.
TriMega president Charlie Cleary said: "As has been the case for the last eleven years, this one-on-one meeting has once again presented an unparalleled forum for developing dealer and supplier relationships. From the networking benefits that the various social functions and activities provided, to the business development opportunities created through the one-on-one meetings, this gathering continues to be the industry-leading event for large dealers and key suppliers."
The twelfth one-on-one meeting will take place from 20-24 April 2008 at the El Conquistador Resort & Spa in Puerto Rico.
