UniCarriers Americas Corporation (UCA) announces the winners of its Nissan Forklift Nine, Dealer of Excellence Award.
The “Nissan Forklift Nine, Dealer of Excellence Award” for fiscal year 2014, which ended March 31, 2015, rewards and recognizes the top nine Nissan Forklift-brand dealers throughout the Americas. The award winners set the standard that all dealers representing UCA brand products aspire. They create a culture of reliability and professionalism within their organizations, and reflect UCA’s core values.
This year, the company launched its Never Quit branding campaign, which promotes excellence in engineering, manufacturing and product dependability.
To attain status as an award winner, each organization accepted UCA’s challenge, surpassing difficult goals and ranking among the OEM’s leading dealerships.
