Sea-Dog Line and T-H Marine Supplies are the winners of the 2008 National Marine Distributors Association Supplier of the Year Awards. The awards were announced at a luncheon Monday during the NMDA’s annual Sales, Training, Education & Purchasing (STEP) Conference in Las Vegas.
“In these very challenging times for our industry, it has never been more important to recognize the outstanding performance of companies supplying products, through NMDA member wholesale distributors, to the thousands of independent marine retailers across the US and Canada,” said NMDA executive director Nancy Cueroni in a statement.
Sea-Dog Line won for the fourth year in a row and the sixth time in seven years in the Platinum Suppliers category. The Everett, Wash.-based company is a leading supplier of more than 5,500 marine dock, deck and rigging hardware items, 12-volt electrical/lighting and ventilation accessories. Runners-up in this category were Tie Down Engineering and Attwood.
T-H Marine Supplies of Huntsville, Ala., a family-owned supplier of fishing, plumbing, rigging and performance products, is the winner in the Gold Suppliers category. Runners-up in this category were Uflex USA and Johnson Pump.
NMDA also handed out three Special Focus Awards at the luncheon. Kwik Tek received the award for Best Packaging, Uflex USA received the award for Marketing Philosophy and Sea Dog Line captured the award for Supply Chain Standards Efficiency.
The wholesale distributor members of NMDA have voted annually since 1972 to recognize their top suppliers for overall excellence in supply chain management, marketing, packaging & shipping and customer service.
