“Dealers can see where their primary suppliers rank,” stated Kreuzburg.  “Manufacturers can also use the survey results to see exactly what dealers want, and then customize their products and support services.  It is valuable and useful information, and a member benefit of OFDA.”


The Dealers’ Choice Awards are based on a structured dealer participative-poll measuring six functional areas of manufacturer performance for a diverse cross-section of dealers throughout North America. The award program recognizes those manufacturers delivering the most consistent and effective overall support to dealers in each of size and product categories. Awards were presented to manufacturers at the Annual NeoCon Conference in Chicago, Illinois.


Inaugurated in 2012, the Dealers Choice Survey provides valuable product-category-level feedback from dealers on the full range of support they receive from their primary non-aligned suppliers, including more specialized furniture manufacturers. Dealers were asked to rate their top-volume non-aligned suppliers in each of six product categories recognized by the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association (BIFMA).

Great Openings – Steve Paine, Michelle King, Jamie Stuursma
