Jim Hughes, Hapman National Sales Manager, noted, “This annual conference is an important meeting for us and for our Reps. We share industry knowledge and changing market dynamics, and we get good feedback from our Reps on what tools they need to serve our customers more effectively.”

In addition to technical training, company Vice President Greg Patterson highlighted new marketing initiatives and the company’s short- and long-term growth strategies. The conference also featured key performance sales awards, including the announcement of Rep-of-the-Year. For 2012, the Hapman Rep-of-the-Year award was presented to Gull Material Handling. Gull Material Handling has been a Hapman Representative in the Midwest since 1984 and achieved record sales in 2012. Hughes noted, “The awards part of the conference gives us a chance to acknowledge everyone’s hard work throughout the year, while spotlighting outstanding performance. It is also a great launching point for next years’ sales goals.”

The meeting concluded with a roundtable discussion of continuous improvement opportunities and expanded customer-focused operations. Patterson summarized, “The foundation of our company is built on decades of industry knowledge and experience with exceptional customer support. While this conference features achievements over the last year, the real value for everyone is the continued look forward. The forward focus examines our customers’ growing needs for expanded technical knowledge and field support, and allows us to examine additional areas where we can help. It is our job to provide what our customers need, and deliver more than what they expect.”
