Comtest dealer network reaches far and wide

16 May 2007 News

Comtest, distributor of Fluke Industrial and Electrical test tools in southern Africa, again hosted its Annual Dealer Awards for 2006. Some 100 dealers from throughout South Africa as well as Kenya, Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique and Uganda attended the three functions held in Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and Cape Town.

The Awards acknowledged dealers' special achievements and were made to the Top Performers of 2006. Comtest, itself a top Fluke performer for 2006, received their award at a sales conference in Malaga earlier in the year. "Without the supreme sales efforts and commitment of our dealer network, Comtest would not have been able to double Fluke's business in southern Africa over two years, as we have," says Comtest's marketing director, Val Verwer.

Fluke's sales manager EEMEA, Bert Vellema and product specialist Bert van Bruchem attended the launches and made presentations on Fluke's direction for the coming year as well as giving a short overview of the new products that Fluke has launched for 2007. The Fluke 771 milliamp process clamp meter, in particular, caused real excitement.

Comtest product specialists, Brendan Campbell and Gavin van Rooy used the opportunity to demonstrate the latest Fluke equipment and Peter Verwer, MD, was on hand to personally thank the dealers for their magnificent contributions.
