Thu Aug 24, 2017

HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. – Harv Giesbrecht, the business developer for ICON Direct, will present at the 2017 NRVIA Inspector Conference in Heber Springs, Arkansas in October.

The fourth annual conference will be held on Friday, Oct. 20 through Sunday, Oct. 22 with a special opportunity for the Aqua-Hot Certified Technician Training Program on Monday, Oct. 23.

“ICON will be the first RV parts aftermarket supplier to present at our annual Inspector conference,” NRVIA President Terry Cooper says. “We believe our members need to stay educated and aware of the many industry suppliers so they can have resources to pull from as needed. ICON provides our industry with a unique advantage by offering a service to customers whose parts are no longer manufactured. We are excited to have Harv present and learn more about their custom manufacturing process.”

ICON Direct is an aftermarket RV supplier who works directly with RV consumers and repair technicians/shops to fulfill the needs of replacement parts for North America.

"I'm excited to be able to represent Icon Technologies at the 2017 NRVIA Conference,” Giesbrecht says. “With the growth in full-time RVers and increasing numbers of families looking to RVing to spend quality time together, Icon strives to be the best supplier of high quality plastic thermoformed and rotomolded parts in the aftermarket. Whenever repairs or upgrades happen, our goal is to make the experience as hassle free as possible.”
