Farmtech Dealer of the Year 2020 is the company BKL from Croatia
The year 2020 was filled with challenges, both for Farmtech and for all dealers. The coronavirus pandemic and the associated restrictions and measures made it necessary to break the ice with new sales approaches. Despite the difficult circumstances, the network of Farmtech brand dealers did its job with distinction and met the expectations of the past year. “We are pleased to have competent, dedicated and reliable partners by our side with which we create a success story,” proudly says Miha Korošec, Sales Manager at Farmtech.
Farmtech Dealer of the Year is BKL!
Farmtech attaches utmost importance to supporting and encouraging dealers in their further development and success. It is for this reason that the statuette for the Dealer of the Year was awarded for the first time this year, which from now on will go into the hands of the most successful dealer every year. It is a prestigious award and the Farmtech dealer who has achieved the best performance and efficiency in business in the past year receives it. And this time the award or the statuette – a work by the excellent Slovenian artist Robert Jurak – went into the hands of the company BKL, which thus earned the honorary title of “Farmtech Dealer of the Year” for 2020. “We are proud of the results achieved by BKL, which embodies the values of the Farmtech brand to the greatest extent possible. Congratulations on the title you have been awarded and at the same time we wish you plenty of success in the future as well,” said Oton Bogdan, Area Sales Manager, at the award.
