CANTEX recently accepted the Continental Sales & Marketing (CSM) Vendor of the Year Award for 2020 with great honor. Continental Sales & Marketing is one of the largest and most respected retail sales representatives in the nation. The award was presented to CANTEX for being an exemplary partner with CSM in key areas most valuable to CSM in their partnerships. Those key areas include the following:
• Leadership – Setting the standard as the premier supplier for retailers in a given category of business.
• Responsiveness – Ability to address issues or concerns or course correct to meet the needs of retail partners.
• Alliance – True partnership in all aspects of daily business related to communications, strategic planning and execution with retail partners.
“CANTEX has been a key partner for Continental Sales and Marketing for over 37 years. While they have always been a great partner, in 2020, they have taken extraordinary measures to meet the myriad of challenges arising from the global pandemic. They have continued to provide unparalleled service and quality PVC electrical products in a time when many suppliers have been unable to meet basic service level commitments,” explained Steven Scheiner, CEO of Continental Sales and Marketing.
Some of the many business challenges that have resulted from the pandemic include the following: keeping up production for unprecedented sales; impacts on supply from social distancing requirements; and managing larger production levels around waves of COVID.
“CANTEX has done an excellent job partnering with CSM to establish a leadership role with our key retail partners. CANTEX continues to set the standard and then exceed that standard. They continue to reinvest in business to support long-term sustainable growth in existing and new categories of business. We cannot stress enough how strongly we value the partnership CANTEX exhibits daily. 2020 continues to be a defining year in our industry, and yet, CANTEX continues to set itself apart by executing business at all levels with excellence!” added Scheiner.
“CANTEX is extremely thankful to CSM for this prestigious award and to every member of the CANTEX team who contributed to achieving this honor,” said CANTEX Vice President of Sales and Marketing Dave Milius.
