BUCK KNIVES NAMES AGENCY AND SALES REPS OF THE YEARMar 29, 2011
Buck Knives recently awarded their 2010 Sales Rep. Agency of the Year to Upper Canada Sports of Toronto, as well as co-Sales Reps of the year to Al Belhumeur of Pro Line Sports in British Columbia, and Lynn Tackett of Tackett Brothers in Dallas, Texas.
Upper Canada Sports, Pro Line Sports and Tackett Brothers are independent manufacturer’s representatives with long standing relationships with Buck Knives. “All of these men and women representing these groups understand the importance of providing good service before and after the sale. They truly understand what Buck Knives is all about. It is our privilege to honor them for their accomplishments,” said CJ Buck President of Buck Knives.
Speaking on behalf of the group, Norm Belanger, owner of Upper Canada Sports said, “Our team takes pride in representing a brand that delivers the quality and workmanship that every Buck Knife has. Buck is still a brand that is highly recognizable in our industry, and our guys take pride in being associated with everyone at the Post Falls, Idaho factory. I know I speak not only for our team but for all of the groups representing Buck Knives.”
Team efforts between Buck employees and the external sales force, along with Buck’s dedication to their American Commitment, a commitment to manufacture as much as possible in the USA, led to a great 2010. “This past year was an exciting and challenging year, but our team across the board delivered the sales results that enabled Buck Knives to meet and exceed our expectations for 2010. These people are being recognized for their accomplishments but they would be the first to tell you that it was a total team effort from all of our Rep groups, both in North America and Internationally. I have no doubt they will deliver strong results in 2011,” said Bob George Director of National Sales and Marketing, Buck Knives.
