KYB Americas Awarded National Pronto Association Partnership Award

KYB Americas Corp. is proud to announce it was recently presented with the National Pronto Association’s Partnership Award.  The announcement was made at the Pronto Fall Shareholder’s Conference and Expo in San Francisco, CA.  The award is voted on by Pronto’s members across North America using relevant criteria that help members achieve their goals.

“Partnership is a concept that sometimes carries a nebulous meaning, due to the overuse of the term:  Not so at Pronto,” said Mike Mohler, Vice President, National Pronto Association. “When members vote for this prestigious award, they are asked to concentrate on “that” vendor who is indispensable to their business – one who transcends the boundaries of a mere seller and buyer relationship, steeping solidly into to the realm of:  consultant, analyst, category manager, and confidant.  We are thrilled to honor the folks at KYB for delighting our members and exceeding our lofty expectations.”

“We are incredibly honored to be recognized by Pronto’s membership as their Partner of the year,” commented KYB Vice President Mike Fiorito.  “Everyone in our organization has a hand in helping KYB provide the world class support to each member’s unique needs.  When Pronto’s members have success, we succeed.  We look forward to our continued partnership with Pronto and their Membership.”
