Airstream Names Leading International Dealers
Airstream Inc. announced its top international dealer rankings based on retail units sold between May 2013 and May 2014 during the company’s dealer meeting in Charleston, S.C., which hosted retailers from Canada, U.K., Germany, Japan, China, Thailand and Australia.
According to a press release, U.K.-based Airstream & Co., located in Penrith, Cumbria, just north of London, was awarded Airstream’s “Top International Dealer” award. The dealership, which serves on the annual Airstream Dealer Council, has been tailoring its service and sales experience to the needs of its customers since 2006 under the company name Airstream Europe. 2010 marked a successful year and it was changed to Airstream & Co. to signify their expansion and an additional southern U.K. location. Sales Director Michael Hold, who has been with the company since the beginning, accepted the award.
Airstream partners in Canada were also recognized for success in travel trailer and touring coach sales. Can-Am RV Centre in London, Ontario, a dealership known for their customer focus and expertise in towing systems, was named “Top Travel Trailer Dealer.” Midtown RV, a family owned dealership located in Penticton, British Columbia, was awarded the “Top Canadian Touring Coach Dealer.”
“Airstream has been steadily growing its international presence over the past few years,” said Airstream President and CEO Bob Wheeler. “From Canada and the U.K. to our new partners in China, we’ve already seen how Airstream’s appeal can cross borders and oceans. Now we’re on our way to make this idea of camping a universal language that everyone can understand.”
In addition to the top international sales awards, Airstream also presented Airstream Japan with a 20-year service award.
“Airstream is honored to have such a great partner in Airstream Japan and the commitment they have shown us is an honor we take very seriously,” said Wheeler. “On behalf of 471 hard working families of Jackson Center, Ohio, we want to thank the employees of Airstream Japan for their continued support.”
