SHIPSHEWANA, Indiana – K-Z was recently awarded the 2016 RVDA Quality Circle Award. Products earning this year’s recognition include Durango/Gold/Venom, Spree/Spree Connect/Spree Escape and MXT/Vision.
The announcement was made by Phil Ingrassia, president of the National RV Dealers Association, at the RVDA Dealer’s Reception, held just before the 54th annual Louisville Show.
"I am excited to witness our current and new dealer partners recognize that K-Z is growing and getting stronger, while we continue to maintain our core values of quality, fairness, courtesy and integrity,” K-Z President Aram Koltookian says. "The best part of this recognition is that we at K-Z know we have even more to offer in the way of innovation, quality improvements and customer service. It’s perhaps a well-worn cliché, but the truth is, our dealers haven’t seen anything, yet. Dealers grade manufacturers in many categories, but reliability, quality, parts and warranty are what matters most to our end users. That’s what keeps K-Z customers happy and returning to K-Z."
“Receiving the Quality Circle Award and being regarded so highly by our dealer body is quite an honor,” Vice President of Sales and Marketing Marlene Snyder says. "This is the 16th year K-Z has been chosen to receive this award. I speak for our whole company when I say ‘Thank You’ to our dealers.
K-Z has earned more years of towable Quality Circle Awards than any other towable manufacturer.
