The HON Company received the first-ever Chairman's Award through the Office Furniture Dealers Alliance (OFDA) Dealer's Choice Awards program. The award, which will be given out on an as-earned (as opposed to annual) basis, honors companies that have upheld long-term commitments to OFDA dealers and partners.
"We at The HON Company are honored to be recognized once again by OFDA and dealers throughout North America with the Chairman's Award," said Jerry Dittmer, president of The HON Company. "We strive to provide the best combination of products and service to our dealer network, and we are humbled by the fact they have found this to be true. This award reflects our ongoing commitment of excellence to them and their customers."
Over the years, The HON Company has won numerous Dealer's Choice Awards. Winners are determined by the annual OFDA Dealer Manufacturer Satisfaction Index Survey, a dealer poll designed to recognize best of class performance, as well identify topics of dealer concern. The survey asked dealers to evaluate up to four of their manufacturer business partners in five key categories: training, product lines, service and support, sales and marketing, and management.
"We are honored to be recognized by OFDA," said Shelley DeSilva, HON's vice president of field sales. "OFDA is an enormously important organization for the independent dealer community."
