GARDEN CITY, N.Y. — Taco Inc. has been honored with Sid Harvey Industries Inc.’s Vendor of the Year award.

Sid Harvey’s John Rynecki, senior vice president of sales and marketing; Rich Carbonaro, vice president of purchasing; and company CEO, Sid Harvey, presented the award to Johnny White, CEO and president, Taco, during a recent visit.

“We give these awards on rare occasion, based purely on merit,” Rynecki said. “We routinely deal with more than 300 manufacturers, and it’s quite special when one company exceeds our expectations based on many variables. It’s not like a cookie-cutter evaluation process. Rather, the award is the sum of many experiences, including Taco’s consistent innovation, product design and quality, attention to details; even the rep firms they choose. This recognition resembles a lifetime achievement award more than it does a typical Vendor of the Year award.

“Taco sets the bar high, and then exceeds that level. We continuously evaluate and rate the companies whose products we sell. Fortunately, and not by accident, most of them share membership in a group that represents the industry well. And, occasionally, one firm rises uniquely above the rest. Taco received the highest marks among our team this year, and so we were compelled to present the award.”

Presentation of the award coincided with Sid Harvey’s annual sales management conference, training sessions, and a factory tour hosted by Ken Anderson, vice president of Northeast regional sales, residential, Taco.

“As always, we were very nicely surprised with our visit to Taco. Taco’s staff and employees do everything they can to make our experience a good one, and the facilities are amazing,” Rynecki said. “We had one of the best sales-management conferences ever. The level of support was over the top.”
