Wendell, NCJune 6, 2013 – KIOTI Tractor is proud to announce that 53 North American KIOTI dealerships have received 5-Paw certification distinction for 2012. The certification is part of the unique KIOTI 5-Paw Dealer Excellence Program, which was created to honor dealerships that deliver outstanding overall performance.

Each year KIOTI dealers are evaluated against stringent qualifications in regards to service, sales, operations and parts. Dealers who meet or exceed these qualifications are named KIOTI 5-Paw Dealers and earn the ability to display KIOTI’s exclusive 5-Paw logo at their dealership. The program was developed to ensure that KIOTI Tractor customers receive a top quality buying experience and premier service when purchasing a KIOTI tractor or UTV.

“KIOTI strives to deliver excellent products with top customer service to every KIOTI user. The efforts of our dealerships to live up to the standards of 5-Paw certification makes them invaluable to the KIOTI brand,” said Peter Dong-Kyun Kim, chief executive officer of Daedong-USA, Inc. KIOTI Tractor Division. “Our program honors these dealerships to let them know that they are an important part of the KIOTI family.”

The KIOTI 5-Paw Dealer Excellence Program was initiated in 2008 to recognize these exemplary dealerships and provide exclusive benefits to those dealers as a reward for their achievement. Each year a select number of dealerships in the KIOTI network receive this certification, symbolizing a dedication to maintaining the standard of excellence that KIOTI is known for.
