Geiger Names 2020 Production Partner of the Year
Lewiston, Maine, February 19, 2021: Top 40 distributor Geiger has named Gemline as its 2020 Production Partner of the Year. Gemline is already a Platinum Partner, the top tier Geiger awards to any production partner.
“Our preferred production partner program is set up to benefit our production partners and our sales partners,” said Jo-an Lantz, Geiger President and CEO. “Our sales partners have incentives to do business with our preferred partners ensuring that we reward the partners who take care of our team the best. This ensures a smooth experience for everyone, including the client.”
Kim Beaudin, Director of Vendor Relations, noted “Gemline excelled at providing differentiated products during 2020 including high quality PPE.” Geiger sales with Gemline increased in 2020, a year where most businesses experienced a decline. “In addition to product development, they reliably provided kitting and drop shipping services,” said Beaudin. “Having true partners like Gemline in 2020 was critical to our ability to meet our clients’ needs. For example, when freight issues occurred Gemline helped us work through them far beyond what we saw from others.”
Gemline was selected from 60 production partners as the winner after a thorough review of service, sales, product safety, and other factors including compelling new products. Instead of a physical award, Geiger made a donation to the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence, MA in Gemline’s honor.
