Tinting The Way To The Top
Companies selected for consideration were either nominated by their suppliers or chosen based on editorial research. Rankings were based on estimated annual sales, anecdotal reports of sales and percent growth and our own estimates, among other considerations such as industry involvement, years in business and rate of growth. Positive growth over the year was also a requirement; all ranked Top Dealers reported positive, steady growth figures.
We also chose to exclude individual franchise locations from our list of Top Dealers, instead focusing on and highlighting those achievements of our independent dealers. Franchises were, however, recognized separately for their national reach.
If you think your company may qualify as a Top Dealer for next year, contact the editor, Casey Neeley at firstname.lastname@example.org to be considered.
