Werner Paddles was voted the second best company to do business in the Outdoor Industry, in the 2008 SNEWS Outdoor Retailer Dealer Survey.

Werner Paddles was voted the second best company to do business in the Outdoor Industry, in the 2008 SNEWS Outdoor Retailer Dealer Survey. The survey appears in the January issue of SNEWS magazine and full results are now posted on line.

Werner moved up two places, from number four, in the same survey in 2007. “It is such a great honor to be named in top positions, two years in a row. This is especially important to us, in that it is our dealers who cast the votes. We are really firing on all cylinders; great product design, quality production, on time delivery, and our sales, service and marketing teams focusing on helping our dealers sell through, says Jim Miller, Werner’s Marketing Manager.

The SNEWS survey lists the best and worst vendors to do business with. Werner landed right behind The North Face who took the number one position. (TNF also made the worst list.) “We look forward to working in partnership with our dealers in the coming paddle season. Our service really is a margin builder,” says Miller.

Werner Paddles is the leading manufacturer of high quality kayak, canoe, and stand up paddles, operating near the banks of the Skykomish River in Sultan, WA. For more information call 800.275.3311 or visit us at www.wernerpaddles.com
