Daikin distributors were treated to several adventures, including hot air balloon rides, at the company’s 2009 Annual Sales Meeting in Colorado Springs, Colo.

CARROLLTON, Texas - Daikin AC (Americas) Inc. awarded the company’s fiscal year 2008 top performing distributors at the annual sales meeting in Colorado Springs, Colo. Rallying around the theme “Rise to the Top”, Daikin AC’s customers spent several days attaining insight and training on the company’s new products, marketing programs, operations, service, and other tools generated to help distributors increase sales and profits. The company also offered a host of adventure games, such as hot air balloon rides, bungee jumping, and rock climbing to illustrate that teamwork helps achieve common goals.

“The annual meeting gives us the opportunity to spend several days in close contact with our customers,” said Akinori “Andy” Atarashi, president of Daikin AC. “We are able to gather critical feedback needed to continue to develop our internal support systems’ focus on customers’ needs.” During the general session, Atarashi expressed his strong conviction that Daikin’s intelligent heating and cooling systems are preferred by the company’s customers because of the tremendous energy saving capability of Daikin’s inverter technology. He also explained Daikin’s commitment to reduce CO2 emission and environmental conservation on a global scale.

In addition to a product tradeshow, workshops, and a general session, Daikin also recognized top distributors in several categories. The Market Share Leadership Award was awarded to The Star Supply Co. in the northeast region, Behler-Young in the central region, and Idaho Green Supply in the west region.

The Best Sales Increase Award recognized The Wallwork Group in the northeast region; Baker Distributing Co. in the southeast region; ACES A/C Supply in the south region; Slakey Brothers Inc. in the west region, and EMCO Corp. in Canada. The DNA Dealer Achievement Award winners included The Wallwork Group in the northeast region, Coastline Distribution in the southeast region and The Star Supply Co. in the northeast region.

The Star Supply Co., based in New Haven, Conn., also received the Pinnacle Award from Daikin AC. The Pinnacle Award is given to the distributorship that performs the best in terms of sales, opportunities, closure rates, project scope and size, and level of investment in Daikin and their line of intelligent heating and cooling solutions.
