WEIMA America, Fort Mill, SC, was presented with the 2015 Partner of the Year Award, presented annually to a company that stands out in partnership with its distributors in areas such as service, sales, education, and promotional support. WEIMA America was nominated by Erich Mazurek of Maze Machinery, LLC.

Madison Burt, vice president of sales, accepted the award on behalf of the WEIMA America team. “It is very rewarding to be acknowledged for your individual successes,” he said. “But it’s even more so when it’s for your entire team.”

The WEIMA distributor network has played a significant role in improving the company’s reputation as a manufacturer and business partner since that time. “Businesses don’t do business with each other. People do business with people,” Burt remarked. He went on to acknowledge the collaborative efforts of the sales, marketing, finance, and technical departments within WEIMA America and their commitment to each and every representative of the WEIMA brand.

In 1999, WEIMA America was established as the North American headquarters of WEIMA Maschinenbau, GmbH. Since then, WEIMA has made a name for itself in the wood industry and many other fields, including plastic and paper. The company returned as the Official Recycling Partner of the 2015 AWFS Fair, held in Las Vegas this July. The “Destroy Responsibly!” campaign has been an important part of the show’s efforts to create a greener footprint, not only at the show, but also within the Las Vegas community.
