Gallagher Canada is pleased to announce the winners of the Dealer Awards Program for 2004. The Platinum Performance Award is an annual award recognizing the top three dealers based on their purchases for the year. Brussels Agri Services in Brussels, Ont., has claimed the Platinum Performance Award for the most successful Canadian dealer in 2004. This is the fourth year running that Tim Prior and the team at Brussels Agri Services have claimed this award. Brussels Agri Services has been a Gallagher dealer for 18 years and Tim attributes much of their success to the emphasis on providing exceptional customer service. It is not unusual for Tim to jump into the truck and head off to help his customers troubleshoot fence problems.
Co-op Services Agricole d'Abitibi Ouest in La Sarre, QC, claimed second place for the Platinum Performance Award. Jean Aubin and his team of 12 have been Gallagher dealers for 11 years and a key to the team's success has been having a large range of products in-store and readily available for their customers. Jean and his team also excel in after sales service.
CCWG Livestock Supplies in Lethbridge, Alta., are to be congratulated on achieving third place in the Platinum Performance Awards. Jim Shields at CCWG has been selling Gallagher products for more than 16 years. Jim believes that the secret to their success has been their very high standards of customer service and an extensive display of Gallagher products.
The Voltage Spike Award for the most improved Gallagher dealer during 2004 was claimed by Premier Choix Agricole in St-Hyacinthe, QC. Lyne Bonin and her staff have been Gallagher dealers for nine years and Lyne exclusively carries Gallagher products.
Inland Co-op in Stratford, Ontario, is the winner of the Insultimber Product Award for 2004. Roger Stevens and his sales team of seven have been selling Gallagher products since 1998 and he credits the store's success to their willingness to install the fencing products that they sell. Their fencing crew is gearing up to start installing Insultimber posts by March.
Edward Consumer Co-op in Pierson, Ma., was awarded the Joule in the Rough Award which recognizes the most successful first year Canadian dealer. They have a staff of 25 headed by Roger DeWalt with Tryan Wells as their fencing expert. This successful store has a reputation of being the Cattlemen's Superstore with the best quality products available.
