ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Heavy duty vehicle lift supplier Stertil-Koni has recognized seven distributor companies in its North American network with its Aspire Program Award.

The Aspire Program Awards honor distributors who have achieved marked incremental sales gains on a year-over-year basis. The awards were presented recently at Stertil-Koni’s 23rd Annual Distributor Meeting in Annapolis.

The Stertil-Koni Aspire Program Award recipients are:

• Alan Tye & Associates, Fairfax, Virginia
• Westvac Industrial, Alberta, Canada
• Reeder Distributors, Fort Worth, Texas
• Municipal Maintenance Equipment, Sacramento, California
• Safetylane (USA LIFT), Bloomington, Indiana
• Power Washer Sales, Littleton, Massachusetts
• Midwest Lift Works, Jordan, Minnesota

“It is my great honor to recognize these top performers,” said Dr. Jean DellAmore, president of Stertil-Koni. “What is particularly special and gratifying is that a number of these companies are first-time winners. To me, that underscores how dynamic and driven our distributor network is in terms of bringing the very best in heavy duty vehicle lifting systems and service support to the entire North American marketplace.”

“Being named a Stertil-Koni Aspire winner is a significant achievement for Safetylane Equipment Corp.,” said Aspire Program Award recipient Peter Haralovich, USA Lift’s president. “We are a small family business focused solely on Stertil-Koni heavy duty vehicle lift equipment products and service. Efficiency is our mantra, so achieving the Aspire Award while competing with larger companies within the Stertil-Koni network indicates we're on the right track.”

Celebrating its second Aspire Program Award was Westvac Industrial Ltd.

“Even though 2018 was a somewhat sluggish year for the Canadian economy, we diversified ourselves and our opportunities,” said Shane Vermeulen, the company’s sales manager. “We were also fortunate to have a large volume of complex projects we were pursuing. Many of these take years to develop and we approached each stage in the right way, involving members of our team and working directly with Stertil-Koni to obtain these opportunities and earn these orders.”
