Fastmount, the New Zealand-based marine panel mounting systems manufacturer, announced the winners of its annual distributor awards in Amsterdam last night.

The Fastmount Distributor Awards ride in the wake of METSTRADE, where its 25-plus distributors from around the world gather together to celebrate achievements with Fastmount.

Gregg Kelly, Fastmount MD, presented Best Distributor to Kroon BV of the Netherlands, an award that recognises highest total sales of Fastmount in 2016-17.

“Kroon has been a consistent high performer over the last 10 years of distributing Fastmount in the Holland region. Their enthusiasm for Fastmount is well proven by their sales in the last year,” said Gregg.

Best Growth went to Promotech Italia, which showed an 82% growth in clip sales on 2016. “While growing their own company, Promotech has managed to increase clip volume year after year, and didn’t fail to disappoint in 2017, pushing harder into new markets,” Gregg continued.

And the final and first award of its kind, the Prime Motivator Award, went to Australasian commercial manager Gregar Haycock for his consistent efforts in promoting Fastmount not only in the marine and architectural industries in the Pacific, but worldwide.

Presenting the award, Gregg said: “Fastmount thrives on people that are passionate about our company, and Gregar manages to spread the Fastmount buzz to every person he encounters.”

Fastmount designs and builds hidden fasteners specifically for the marine, architectural, aviation and recreational vehicle industries globally. Boatyards in over 50 countries currently use the Fastmount panel mounting system.
