AIM/R presented its 2004 Golden Eagle award to Ward Manufacturing during the American Supply Association's annual convention. Each year the Association of Independent Manufacturers'/Representatives recognizes a manufacturer that works cooperatively with reps; has a positive influence on the industry; has an efficient, up-to-date information network; facilitates the manufacturers rep job; and supports AIM/R. Tom Gleason, vice president/marketing and sales at Ward Manufacturing (left), accepted the award from Greg McLaren, president of ProLine Sales, Glenside, Pa., and president of AIM/R. “Ward sells through reps only to wholesalers - that is our channel,” Gleason said.
