2017 Josam President’s Award winners…

Mayco SalesMAYCO SALES of Dallas, TX

Having also come to the Green Team in 2012 from a prior color, the Mayco Sales team is one of the most respected drain reps in the country.  Led by Michael May, Mayco Sales is faced with one of the most competitive marketplaces in the country but this does not impede his continued growth.  Ask any customer in the market for the drain rep that first comes to mind and most likely the answer will be Mayco’s Sales.  Too many times we have heard customers say that drains are a pain, but since they are needed so early in the phase of the job, it is critical that there are no mistakes from the time of quote, to submittals and then to delivery!  Mayco does exactly this and it is why they have earned the reputation that they have.

RKR MANUFACTURER REPRESENTATIVES of Denver, CO

RKR, a well-respected rep firm in the Denver market, joined the Josam team in 2010.  There is no doubt that they have been faced with fierce competition in the Denver market and we imagine there were often times they wondered if Josam was a right fit for them.  For some time they have had their sights on one of the major mechanical contractors in the market.  While they knew that a strong relationship on the part of one of their competitors prevented them from landing this account, this never stopped them from calling on them and letting them know Josam was always an option for them should the need arise. When turmoil arose in the market and the competitive rep situation was dismantled, RKR has positioned themselves favorably over the years with this account and successfully landed it.  With the success in landing this account, the management at RKR had the foresight to know that with this business would come a very time consuming and high maintenance account.  Knowing that to sustain the demands of such an account, the management team dedicated one of their top inside sales people to handling the account 100% of the time on behalf of Josam.  Aside from landing this single account, RKR has done a terrific job in cultivating multiple mid-sized accounts to come to the Josam side.  Although there were days and even years, when we are sure that they often wondered if this was a dream or reality, the team at RKR has always had a clear vision for the Josam line. We are extremely grateful that they never stopped pursuing this vision, remained committed to our lines, have established Josam as a major player in the Denver market and for it, they are now reaping the rewards.

JOHNSON INJohnson Industries 2017 President's AwardDUSTRIES of Seattle, WA

As a smaller rep firm who is surrounded by one of the most challenging drainage markets in the United States, Bill Oliver and his team continue to push for market share and embrace opportunities wherever they exist.  The Johnson team represent that “can do” attitude that we all admire.  Johnson also continue to embrace the Josam message to sell the entire family of Josam products and exceed their goals in multiple product lines.  To say that selling cast iron in the Pacific NW is challenging is an understatement, but this team continues to conquer the challenge. We all have learned to admire Johnson Industries as a challenger that faces the competition no matter how big they are and it shows us all how to win.
