Bel-Ray receives three NMDA awards


Lubricant maker Bel-Ray Co. said it has been named the winner of the 2016 National Marine Distributors Association Supplier of the Year in the Gold Category.

Bel-Ray said it also was recognized for two additional awards — Best All-Round Packaging and Marketing Philosophy — at the annual NMDA STEP Conference July 18-22 in Chicago.

Awarded annually by the distributor members of NMDA, the awards recognize companies that meet and exceed standards and goals that the Supplier of the Year committee set.

“We are honored to receive the 2016 Supplier of the Year award and the two special focus awards for Best All-Round Packaging and Best Marketing Philosophy from the National Marine Distributors Association,” Jim Self, general manager of Bel-Ray Marine, said in a statement.

“The entire team at Bel-Ray takes pride in manufacturing a world-class product, and we try to take all of our customer’s needs into consideration when developing product lines. We are very proud of everyone involved, and having our efforts recognized through winning these coveted NMDA awards is a wonderful accomplishment.”
