Winnebago Industries to Receive 17th Consecutive RVDA Quality Circle Award
FOREST CITY, Iowa, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Winnebago Industries, Inc. (NYSE: WGO), a leading U.S. recreation vehicle manufacturer, received notification that the Company earned the prestigious Quality Circle Award from the Recreation Vehicle Dealers’ Association (RVDA). The award is scheduled to be presented at a ceremony conducted at RVDA’s Dealer Reception during the National RV Trade Show on Monday, November 26, in the Elliot Room of the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Louisville, KY.
“We believe we have the best dealer network in the RV industry,” said Winnebago Industries’ CEO and President Randy Potts. “We are especially honored to have our dealer partners recognize us with this prestigious award. We are particularly proud that Winnebago Industries is the only manufacturer to receive this award from RVDA every year since its inception.”
Winnebago Industries was recognized as a Quality Circle Award winner based on overall dealer satisfaction for Winnebago, Itasca, and Era motorized brands as measured in the Dealer Satisfaction Index (DSI) survey conducted by RVDA.
Dealers believe the DSI is a tool to help improve communication and the overall relationships with their manufacturers. The survey measures dealer attitudes in key policy, product, and procedure areas that dealers say are the most important elements in their business partnerships with manufacturers.
“The DSI is a valuable indicator of our dealers’ perspective on the quality of our products and services,” said Potts. “We wish to thank all our dealer partners for the confidence they have shown in Winnebago Industries in honoring us with this award. We also wish to thank our valued employees for their continued diligence to ensure that every Winnebago Industries motor home, program and service provided is of the highest quality. Our employees have worked extremely hard to build high quality products, while providing world-class programs and services to our dealer partners. We are particularly excited about our dynamic motor home lineup and innovative new products that will be available soon. We plan to continue to deliver the most innovative and highest quality products, services and support in the industry for both our dealer partners and retail customers.”
