SOUTHINGTON, Conn. — RVBusiness magazine recently named Hemlock Hill RV, located at 2123 Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike in Southington, Conn., as one of its 2017 Top 50 RV Dealers in North America.
The Andro family of Hemlock Hill RV is very proud and grateful to have achieved Top 50 RV dealer status. Hemlock Hill RV has remained a local, family run business for over 30 years, where the owners still work in the day-to-day operations. Growing their people through education, special job opportunities and training is what has helped Hemlock Hill RV reach this level of success in the RV Industry.
Hemlock Hill RV trains their people on RV everything, everyday! The Hemlock Hill RV sales team is extremely knowledgeable on all of their RV units, (new and used), and maintain great relationships with each customer, according to a press release. Hemlock Hill RV’s trusted service technicians are RVIA certified where Value, Safety, Security and Professionalism are their priority. “Our employees are like family to us. We couldn’t have done it without their dedication, loyalty and passion,” said Chris Andro, owner & general manager of Hemlock Hill RV.
RVBusiness asked recreation vehicle manufacturers to nominate dealers across the United States and Canada who exemplify best practices and excellence in their field. Nominees were invited to fill out comprehensive applications describing business aspects including customer service and satisfaction, employee training, financial planning, marketing and community involvement. An independent panel of industry experts convened at the RV/MH Hall of Fame in Elkhart, Ind., the unofficial “RV Capital of the World,” to select the RVB Top 50 from nominated dealers who submitted applications.
Program coordinators expanded the judges’ panel this year, bringing perspectives from even more areas of RV-industry business specialization. The extra hands also helped make lighter work of the extensive applications received, according to Sherman Goldenberg, publisher of RVBusiness magazine and founder of the Top 50 Dealer program.
“As a whole, our applying dealers not only gave us more data this year, but they also went to great lengths to tell us their stories and let their personalities shine through,” Goldenberg said. “It was a tough job for the judges to narrow it down. Those who made the cut should be very proud of that achievement.”
The 2017 class of RVBusiness Top 50 dealers were honored at a Nov. 8 awards reception in front of an all-industry standing room only audience of over 400 during the 2017 RV Dealers Association (RVDA) International Convention/Expo at Bally’s Las Vegas, presented in cooperation with the RVDA of both the United States and Canada and underwritten by the program’s sponsors: Airxcel, Ally Financial Inc., Cummins Power Generation, Dometic Corp., Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp., Lippert Components Inc., NTP-STAG, Protective Asset Protection, Truma and Wells Fargo CDF.
“It was great to be recognized in front of our peers from all across the United States of America and Canada, but the benefits of attending the RVDA Convention, year after year, far outweigh any accolades. This conference has helped us expand our business, run it more effectively and efficiently and bring new, innovative technology to our operations. In an industry filled with entrepreneurs and family run dealerships, the ongoing support of our partners and vendors is invaluable. Thank you!” says Chris Andro.
