Electronic chart leader Jeppesen Marine (formerly C-Map) recently awarded—for the second consecutive year—its prestigious “Distributor of the Year” Award to Payne’s Marine Group, headquartered in Victoria, British Columbia with additional offices in Vancouver, Burnaby and Mississauga, Ontario.
This honor, along with a beautiful marine clock and barometer, was presented during the recent 2008 Toronto Boat Show. Grant Kuebler, president of Payne’s Marine Group, was on hand to accept the award from Glenn Butt, Jeppesen Marine’s Canadian Sales and Marketing manager.
Each year, Jeppesen Marine recognizes one distributor from across Canada for a superior job of representing and selling C-Map electronic charts and related services. “Payne’s has shown excellent professionalism supporting Jeppesen Marine products with its dealers over these past four years—and they continue to increase sales each year they sell our products,” said Butt. “Winning this award back-to-back can only be attributed to the hard work and determination of Payne’s sales representatives and buyers. On behalf of the entire Jeppesen Marine family, we congratulate Payne’s Marine Group on a job well done,” Butt added.
A key part of Payne’s sales success stems from the fact it is the exclusive Canadian distributor for Standard Horizon’s line of MAX compatible GPS/chart plotters. The company’s strong sales of Standard Horizon products contributed to Payne’s claiming not only the title of top Jeppesen Marine distributor in Canada—but also in all of North America—for the past two years.
“We truly appreciate this recognition from Jeppesen Marine,” said Kuebler. “We grow our sales of Jeppesen Marine products each year because we have full confidence that these are the best electronic charts available for recreational boaters. MAX electronic charts give Canadian sailors, cruisers and fishermen the powerful features and updated, accurate detail needed for confident navigation. And they’re a perfect match for our line of sophisticated, yet easy-to-use Standard Horizon GPS chart plotters and multi-function navigators,” added Kuebler.
