Knoxville, Tenn.-based Johnstone Supply distributor M. Todd Cramer was presented with the Harley-Davidson 110th anniversary Road King motorcycle for achieving the largest sales increase of Coleman brand HVAC products in 2013.
The bike was presented to Cramer at the Johnstone Supply spring sales planning meeting and trade show in March.
Johnson Controls kicked off the competition during last year’s trade show as an incentive to spark sales growth of Coleman products amongst Johnstone Supply’s network of six distribution centers.
“The Coleman brand of HVAC equipment is a product of Milwaukee-based Johnson Controls, and Harley-Davidson represents another great Milwaukee institution,” said Tim Brusseau, a unitary products strategic distribution account manager at Johnson Controls. “So it seemed only natural that the Coleman brand would team up with the legendary motorcycle manufacturer and create this competition. We have seen substantial growth in Coleman sales over this past year, which speaks to the commitment of Johnstone Supply distributors to the brand.”
