Well-deserved awards for those who know the ropes! JCB has held the annual dealer conference and awarded the top-performing dealers of 2018 from Russia and the CIS countries.
EkoNiva-Tekhnika was recognised in several categories including the Most Outstanding Growth of Skid Steer Loader Retail Sales, the Highest Increase in Spare Parts Sales per Unit and the Breakthrough of the Year in JCB Finance. ‘Business partnership with JCB was really successful and productive for us in 2018’, says Gennadiy Nepomnyashchiy, Regional Director of EkoNiva-Tekhnika. ‘We have implemented large-scale projects and improved our after-sales service. We put a special focus on our demo shows and successfully marketed new attachments and implements. As a result, the sales plan has been exceeded by 25%. We have excelled in certain things, but there are new challenges for us. One of them is the expansion of the trade-in system, which is of interest to our clients.’ EkoNiva-Chernozemye was acknowledged in the Biggest Market Share in Retail Sales category.‘Our collaboration with JCB was very fruitful in 2018’, says Eduard Ivanov, Sales Department Manager of EkoNiva-Chernozemye. ‘Eighty-nine units were sold in 2018, the JCB 531-70 telescopic loader being the top-seller as the most popular model in our market. This model can tackle almost any handling job on a farm, which makes this reliable machine indispensable to our clients. In 2019, we are going to develop our partnership with JCB, increase the sales of wheeled loaders, extend the trailed implement line and keep expanding our market share.
