TUALATIN, Ore. -- Jacto Inc. presented several awards at its National Distributor Meeting and Jacto University training session, which took place March 2-3 at the company’s headquarters in Tualatin, Ore. More than 60 distribution partners from the Short-Line-AG and Outdoor-Power-Equipment fields were in attendance, and Jacto’s USA staff and key managers from the company’s Brazilian headquarters conducted the meeting.
The company recognized selected distributors with longevity awards. Charlie Reilly of J.S. Woodhouse Co. Inc., was recognized for 15 years of distribution partnership with Jacto. Roberts Supply, TidewaterPower Equipment and Tru Power, Inc., received five year awards. Plus, Bob Dreher, territory manager for Tru Power, Inc. was singled out for his achievement of selling nearly 2,000 Jacto backpack sprayers to dealers in his market during 2016. This feat earned Bob and his wife Trudy a trip to Brazil, which they are taking in April 2017.
