Selking International, Nexus RV supplier of TerraStar and DuraStar chassis, prepared an employee lunch on Wednesday, Aug. 3, at the Elkhart, Indiana location, followed by the presentation of two awards in the Nexus showroom.
“The lunch is our way of congratulating the entire Nexus organization for achieving the awards for sales growth, manufacturing quality and outstanding customer service,” John Selking, one of four brothers who own Selking International, says. “It’s really an honor to have the opportunity to celebrate these awards and our partnership with the people here at Nexus."
Presented first was the Heavy Hitter Award for outstanding sales growth over a 12 month period while maintaining optimal quality standards and customer service. Second, the Navistar Circle of Excellence Award was given for exceptional quality while maintaining excellent customer satisfaction.
“Without the support of Selking and International, we would not be where we are today,” Nexus RV Co-Founder Claude Donati says. “The product they provide gives Nexus a unique advantage over our competitors.”
“Due to the design of our product on the International Chassis, we stand apart in the Super C segment,” Nexus RV Co-Founder Dave Middleton says. “And Nexus RV happens to be the top purchaser of the TerraStar chassis in the world.”
Founded in 1902, International is a worldwide producer of medium duty trucks, over the road and severe service trucks. Nexus RV and Selking International have enjoyed a long-standing business relationship that predates Nexus.
