And we are very proud to have won. It motivates not only our team, but also is something we communicate to our customers,” said Sven Nielsen, Managing Director of BSI. “Our collaboration with Genie goes back 15 years. We have the same goals; in addition to safety, Quality By Design is a top priority for us. We are always personally available, in a timely manner, for our customers.”

Nielsen added, “After expanding our premises, we can supply our customers with high quality equipment at short notice, which is a benefit. For more than 25 years, we have placed great emphasis on a strong customer orientation, and now we look forward to the next 25 years together with Genie — and winning again in 2024.”

“It is always inspiring to be recognized for the efforts of our team,” said Krishna Patel, AGM – Head for Business for the access division. “Throughout the year, we were not thinking much about the competition apart from providing timely feedback to the Genie surveys and adhering to the requisitions of the dealer contest. Rather, we were focused on providing the best experience to Genie customers, and following the processes to achieve it. That said, winning the Silver Award is a great feeling, especially after winning Bronze last year. It motivates our team to be the best at what we do, which is providing quality services to our customers.”

Bronze Award: Concord Access Solutions (formerly Goscor Access Solutions), headquartered in Midrand, South Africa. Concord Access Solutions GAS operates a fleet of more than 1,000 access equipment units offering working heights from 6 to 57 m, suitable for multiple applications for many markets.

“Our market is highly competitive, so we worked closely with the Genie team to ensure availability of machines, at competitive prices. The result was an excellent sales year, locally and across borders. Having stock readily available was key, given our distance from factories and distribution centers. To accommodate that, we focused on having a range of Genie equipment in stock so we could get the equipment to our customers faster than our competitors,” said Marcus Gartside, National Sales Manager, Concord Access Solutions. “A partnership with Genie, and the ability to share information, is vital to understanding challenges and to serving the market and continuing to grow.”
