Minneapolis-based Dalco selected Tennant as their Vendor of the Year for 2018. Members of Dalco’s leadership team — Ted Stark III, Rod Dummer and Jim White — presented the award to Tennant’s Commercial team — Rick Cobian, David Chase, Bill Patton and Dennis Kortsha — at their 27th annual vendor appreciation event on February 19, 2019.

“Dalco has defined the gold standard in what it means to be a true partner. True partnership means we strive to help each other grow our businesses profitably. We challenge each other to be our best. When it’s a difficult conversation, we work hand in hand to make sure the people who own and use Tennant Equipment have the best experience possible. Partnerships like ours are very rare and certainly more than the sum of their parts. Winning Vendor of the Year is a deeply meaningful symbol of how Dalco values our partnership just as much as we do,” commented Tennant Commercial Manager, Rick Cobian.

The process for selecting Dalco’s Vendor of the Year has been developed to gather the opinion of the company as a whole. Dalco representatives from every department and multiple locations grade each Key and Core Vendor on 16 different criteria. This criteria examines the manufacturers’ focus on product and process innovation, distributor security and representative relationships and support.

Dalco and Tennant have been working together to bring their customers the best in environmental equipment for over 20 years. Tennant is a long-term valuable partner that is committed to innovation and achieving superior service for Dalco customers on a consistent basis. We value the ease of doing business with their representation and how Tennant’s business practices align with Dalco’s four core values; expertise, positive attitude, relationship building and solution focused.

“Tennant is an integral component to our overall growth strategy and equipment, service and repair are a key differentiator for Dalco,” commented Jim White, Director of Sales at Dalco Enterprises. “Having a strategic partnership with a premier manufacturer like Tennant offers us the best opportunity to provide unique solutions to address our customer’s needs. This is a well-deserved accolade to the entire Tennant team.”
