Certified Slings Wins Harrington Hoists’ Distributor Excellence Award . . . Again!

Posted on August 2, 2017

Certified Slings & Supply® is proud to again be named a recipient of the Distributor Excellence Award by Harrington Hoists, Inc.  This award is given to outstanding distributors with strong sales growth and supplier partnership.  Certified Slings & Supply® has previously won Outstanding Distributor of the Year and the Gold Club Award, and this year marks the third time they have been awarded Distributor Excellence.

“We work closely with our key suppliers and choose new vendors carefully,” explains Nicole Parkerson, Vice President of Administration.  “By having great relationships, we are able to offer high quality products to our customers and still be competitive.  Harrington Hoists is a perfect example of the success that comes from a strong partnership.

Parkerson credits some of the success to Harrington Hoists’ reliability and the durability of the product.  “Some of our customers who own other hoist brands complain about having to replace brakes every year or two,” says Parkerson.  “We love being able to sell them a product with a 10 year brake warranty, and our strong stocking commitment means it’s available right away.”

The products aren’t the only reason for success, however: Certified Slings & Supply® is an authorized repair center and is committed to building a knowledgeable sales force.  “Knowledge is power and comes from education,” explains Doug Worswick, CEO.  “Harrington Hoists offers outstanding training opportunities that we take full advantage of to better prepare our team to promote and sell the benefits of the Harrington Hoists brand.  Certified Slings & Supply® and Harrington Hoists’ partnership has grown over the years due to our commitment to service, quality, and team and making sure our customers get the right Harrington Hoists product to get the job done safely.”

Carlo Lonardi, President and CEO of Harrington Hoists, congratulated Certified Slings & Supply® for another outstanding year.  “In today’s fast-paced world, it is refreshing to share a true partnership with a quality company like Certified Slings & Supply®. Loyalty and support are key elements in developing partnerships to this level which is proven by the success we have shared,” explained Lonardi.
