R. Williamson and Associates and SRS Enterprises were both given 2015 sales awards from Berner International Corp. 

R. Williamson was given the Representive of the Year Award for commission sales and SRS Enterprises was given the same for and buy/sell work.

 The awards were presented at the AHR Expo in Orlando, Florida.

R. Williamson & Associates, a Berner rep since 1973, earned the award for its national drugstore chain accounts and industrial air curtain sales in Chicago, northwest Indiana, northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.

“They’ve been one of our top rep firms for a very long time, because they self-sufficiently market and sell the product just like an in-house regional sales manager might,” said Michael Coscarelli, Berner’s national sales manager. 

SRS Enterprises had a great year with retail, commercial buildings, hospitals and especially dock and door projects, such as a New Jersey-based kosher winery, according to Charles Cino, account manager with SRS Enterprises, which covers the New York City and New Jersey territories.

“SRS has perfected the art of closing the deal,” said Steve Benes, a Berner sales manager. “While some reps depend on national accounts and large projects, SRS has shown a high rate of closing sales on the everyday orders.” 

Berner International also honored four other manufacturer’s representative firms for outstanding sales achievements during 2015, including: Vigmark; S and J Equipment; Square M Systems Inc.; and Bennet Holland and Associates.
