Hörmann Flexon High-Performance Doors held its second annual Dealer Council meeting on Sept. 9 at its new manufacturing plant in Burgettstown, Pa. Representatives from several Hörmann Flexon Tier 1 dealers attended the event. Action items included discussions about past, present, and future sales figures, current and future product lines, and information about understanding specific market development. The representatives answered questions and provided valuable feedback about their firsthand experiences related to the subject matter.
- James Buhler of Wallace International
- Gary Evans of Modern Handling Equipment Co.
- Michael Goode of Overhead Door Co. of Nashville
- Jeff Munk of Overhead Door Co. of Pittsburgh
- Dave Potter of Crawford Door of Salt Lake City
- Jeff Ross of ESS Group
- Dave Saffrin of Twin City Garage Door
Jeff Cherok of Dorado Equipment Specialties and Steve Holmes of Commercial Door Co. are also members of the group but were unable to attend the meeting.
Peter Burnham, Hörmann Flexon’s vice president of sales and marketing, said he was pleased with the professionalism, interaction, and feedback from the council members. “We hosted the meeting at our new facility at Starpointe Business Park so the council members were our first dealers to tour our new building. Following the tour and meeting, it was apparent the dedication and commitment of our Dealer Council representatives will be a contributing factor in Hörmann Flexon’s continued growth.”
A follow-up webinar for the representatives is scheduled in October, and a third annual Dealer Council meeting is being planned for 2014.
