2018 TECH Americas Distributor Expo a resounding success!
TECH… the tire repair global “Authority”, founded 79 years ago by Charles Cornell with his patented chemical re-vulcanization process, recently hosted its annual Americas Distributor Expo in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Hundreds of Distributors from all over the Americas participated in this dynamic event. This year’s Expo theme was “Going Places” … the theme conveys the tremendous momentum, as TECH and their Distributors come off a significant sales revenue increase in 2017.
TECH enjoys great loyalty and longevity within its Distributor network. Several distributors are third, and even fourth generation businesses. This year’s Expo also included a compelling video featuring numerous longtime Distributors who shared their heartfelt thanks for the opportunity to build their own business with TECH.
During the Expo, Distributors attended training classes created specifically to help them gain insights that translate into competitive marketplace advantages. According to TECH Americas President Mike Murray “TECH’s success is inextricably linked to our Distributors. This Expo is TECH’s investment in that important relationship. The education and sharing of best practices raises the level of success across our entire distributor spectrum”.
Distributors also were provided the opportunity to interact with dozens of key vendors who provide a wide range of TECH branded products. Lou Calabrese Vice President of Sales for TECH said, “We want to equip our distributors with a full array of the latest and best equipment to provide to their customers. We are committed to keeping our product line up on the cutting edge so that the technicians and shops who use TECH products provide world class service to their customers.”
The 100+ Americas distributors echo the strength of their partnership with Tech. Mike Woods, whose family has been a 52 year TECH distributor from Pearl, Mississippi said “I learned the TECH business from my Dad and I am proud to now have my son Trevor join me in the business. TECH represents the highest quality products in the tire repair business. It gives me great pride in knowing we help get vehicles back on the road safely providing many more years of reliable service. We have and continue to Go Places with TECH”!
Distributors were treated to product demonstrations and were even given the chance to compete in a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) competition.
TECH will conduct their 2019 Expo in Covington, Kentucky and are already laying the ground work for another great event!
