The NAEDA Dealer’s Choice Awards are determined from results of dealer evaluation data collected from the association’s annual Dealer Manufacturer Relations Survey.  The survey asks dealers to evaluate the companies whose products they sell in key areas correlated to a dealer’s operational model. The Dealer’s Choice Award is designed to recognize those manufacturers who in the eyes of the dealers are doing an exceptional job of providing them with top-quality products, parts, services and support.
