SUPPLIER OF THE YEAR — Crown Products
Distributors who voted for our Supplier of Year commented that this company does whatever it takes, has good inventory, a helpful art department and fast service. Others went on to say that their can-do attitude helps distributor sales people always meet client needs.
MULTI-LINE REP OF THE YEAR — Cochran & Company
Creative, hard-working and knowledgeable are words that were used over and over again by distributors when asked about our SPPA Multi-Line Rep of the Year. They said they’re available anytime of the day or night to help customers. They’re good to help with samples, personal product shows and informing distributors about new and innovative products that are available. Combine all of this with an impressive array of product lines and you get our SPPA Multi-Line Rep of the Year — Cochran and Company!
