Toyne Dealer Education Focus of 2014 Dealer Summit


Breda, Iowa - Toyne is finalizing plans to host the 2014 Dealer Summit from Sept. 7 through Sept. 9, at the Carrollton Inn, in Carroll, Iowa. After announcing their corporate re-branding initiative at last year's summit, the custom fire and emergency vehicle manufacturer will be concentrating on the future, and helping dealers build upon that new brand.

The annual summit is an interactive forum for dealers to gain additional knowledge on Toyne apparatus. In addition to educational presentations breakout sessions and social events, dealers will tour the Toyne plant in Breda to get a firsthand look at the company's latest manufacturing developments. There will also be employee-led discussions at Toyne headquarters, where dealers will have the opportunity to hear from those on the front lines of the quality-focused operation. Spartan Chassis will be another keynote presenter at the event and many other Toyne vendors will be in attendance.

The annual dealer award presentation is planned for the afternoon of Sept. 9. This year's awards will recognize the network's 2013 accomplishments in the following areas: Salesman of the Year, Most Improved Dealership, Million Dollar Club and Dealer of the Year. This is also an opportunity for Toyne to thank all dealers for their work over the years and continue to offer them tools that will make their jobs in the field easier.

"Toyne's mission for the past year has been to build the foundation for the Toyne of tomorrow, and now it is time to help cultivate that in our dealer network," said Toyne president Michael Schwabe. "We pride ourselves on manufacturing equipment that is built to take the call, and we want to outfit our extended team with the knowledge and tools to be prepared to take that call at their dealership as well."
