Automatic greasing systems specialist FLO Components Ltd. in Ontario has received the Lincoln Industrial Corp. special “Celebrating 100 Years” distributor award.
According to Len Shpeley, Lincoln’s Ontario district sales manager: “This award was developed to recognize a select few distributors who over the long term consistently supported Lincoln in growing not just sales and market share but also product and new market development. Over the last 35 years, FLO Components has and continues to set the standard for other Lincoln Systems Houses. We look forward to many more years of mutual success.”
FLO has been the leading distributor for Lincoln in Ontario since 1977. The company received the “Distinguished Distributor Award,” which is awarded annually for outstanding sales performance to one or two distributors in North America, in 1999, 2002, 2005 and 2007.
Commenting on this most recent award, Chris Deckert, president of FLO Components, said: “It was an honour to receive this award. Not many companies can say that for over two generations we have been a key partner with a global leader. Our thanks go to everyone at FLO who focus at making us the best at responding quickly, at installing professionally and at providing quality customized lubrication solutions for all our customers — done right the first time. This award is an indication to us that, over the long term, we are getting it right.”
FLO’s marketing specialist, Gabriel Lopez, adds: “This award is a validation of our passion for building strong and lasting customer relationships. … They understand that they’re not dealing with ‘just another autogreaser supplier.’ They consistently choose FLO because they know they can trust and rely on FLO to take care of them, quickly and professionally. Without our customers, none of this would be possible.”
FLO Components Ltd. is a lubrication systems specialist and a leading supplier to major manufacturers, trucking, mining, construction and road building companies and other heavy equipment users in Ontario.
