KEARNEY, NEBRASKA, U.S. — For the third time in the past four years, Chief Agri-Industrial Division was presented the award for top performing business unit at the Chief Industries, Inc. annual management meeting. Each year, Chief Industries presents this award to the top performing business unit, based on its return on operating assets.
In addition Chief Agri-Industrial received an award for best new product introduction for its successful launch of its environmental products operation.
The division was also given special recognition for taking a group of dealers to present a significant charitable contribution to an orphanage in the Dominican Republic as part of their Dealer Loyalty trip this March.
“The drought of 2012 had a significant impact on the overall market,” said Roger Townsend, Chief Agri-Industrial Division president. “The Chief Agri-Industrial business unit experienced a small decrease in revenue for the fiscal year, but with a solid improvement to the bottom line. We are honored to receive this award, but our top priority is to take care of our customers. We are committed to taking care of our customers, keeping an excellent team environment with all employees, and maintaining a positive relationship with our suppliers.”
“Chief Agri-Industrial division has made great improvements over the past several years,” said DJ Eihusen, chairman and chief executive officer of Chief Industries. “The division continues to grow and expand its products offerings. They set an excellent example of teamwork, passion, commitment to taking care of the customer, and living by the founding principles of Chief Industries.”
