Exmark Honors Power Trim with 20-Year Service Award

BeatriceNE (January 03, 2008) — Exmark, a leading manufacturer of commercial zero-turn riding mowers, recently honored Power Trim Company, Inc., with a 20-year service award. Located in La Palma, Calif., Power Trim has distributed Exmark products in California and Northern Nevada since September 1987.

Exmark values its relationship with Power Trim and appreciates the company's commitment to delivering value to dealers, said Bruce Cooper, Exmark's Director of Sales.

"Power Trim performs numerous activities and promotions to distinguish themselves and Exmark in their marketplace," Cooper said. "Exmark applauds Power Trim for 20 successful years of product distribution."

Cooper presented the award to the Power Trim staff in December. The Power Trim team includes Jim Dykes, president; Brian Heffernan, vice president sales and marketing; Guy Miller, service manager; Ronald Cuellar, parts manager; Bob Nichols, territory manager; and Hase Rector, territory manager.

"Exmark's product line has been well-received in our market through efforts from both Exmark and Power Trim," Dykes said. "Product acceptability is not simply based on product performance or price. A product must be backed by knowledgeable people that do what they say they'll do, time and time again."

"A 20-year business relationship is faced with many challenges, such as varying markets and equipment trends," Heffernan said. "However, Power Trim and Exmark have been able to create a unique and sustainable market position by preserving what is distinctive about the two companies while blending their strategies to create a competitive advantage."
