Lincoln Industrial recently presented the Distinguished Distributor Award to Motion Canada branches in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The award is presented annually to distributors who meet certain criteria in sales, marketing, inventory, administration and service, and who distinguish Lincoln Industrial as a leader in the lubrication industry.

“The mutual commitment between Lincoln Industrial and Motion Industries remains strong,” said Jim Clark, Motion Industries’ Canada group vice-president. “The Lincoln products have helped differentiate Motion Industries from our competition and have long been a significant contributor to our success in western Canada.

“We are proud to receive this prestigious award on behalf of our sales, shop, technical group, and distribution centre,” Clark said. “The dedicated support capabilities of these operations are responsible for our success.”

A manufacturer of lubrication and industrial pumping equipment for industry, Lincoln Industrial is headquartered in St. Louis, Mo.
