Capping off its 10th year as a Carrier Transicold dealership, Carrier Transicold of Utah was named 2007 North American Dealer of the Year at Carrier Transicold's annual Truck, Trailer, and Rail dealer meeting held recently in Greensboro GA. Carrier Transicold is part of Carrier Corporation, a unit of United Technologies Corp.
At the event, Carrier also recognized Refriservicio, based in Mexico City, as its Latin American Dealer of the Year. In all, 28 firms and three individuals from Carrier's North American and Latin American dealer networks were recognized for strong sales and service performance, making significant investments in facilities, and achieving business objectives.
“Break-Through Solutions” was the theme of the dealer meeting, which reviewed the positive market reaction to innovation found in the hybrid diesel-electric Vector 1800MT system and X2 Series trailer refrigeration units, while previewing future developments.
The awards presentation was a break-through for Carrier Transicold of Utah, which was founded in 1997 by Greg Jenson, president, and Jay Payne, vice president of sales. A first-time Dealer of the Year winner, Carrier Transicold of Utah generated significant growth since its founding and now has 24 service technicians, an eight-bay full-service facility in Salt Lake City, and runs mobile operations from St. George UT and Reno NV. The dealership also received a NextLevel Perfect Score award — a prerequisite to winning Dealer of the Year.
Led by Jorge Hernández, president, Refriservicio also received a NextLevel Perfect Score award, a Quota-Buster and a Double-Double for achieving double-digit growth in two areas.
