MORRISVILLE, NC - Juki Corporation, a world-leading provider of automated assembly products and systems, awarded Dave Trail of Horizon Sales the Juki Representative of the Year at the recent Juki Americas National Sales meeting. The meeting took place on Thursday, October 21, 2010 at Juki America’s headquarters in Morrisville, NC. The award was given to Horizon Sales for achieving the highest performance against budget and was weighted to include territory potential, new customers and number of machines sold. 

Bob Black, President and CEO of Juki Automation Systems, said, “Dave is consistently one of our top performing sales representatives year in and year out. He has a great working relationship with his existing customers and continually brings new customers to Juki. It was my pleasure to recognize Dave for the good work that he has done for Juki this past year.”

“We are pleased to achieve this level of success. Juki has consistently been our leading line year after year. The product line meets the needs of our customer base and through the company’s excellent pre- and post-sales support, we have been able to make Juki the number one choice for pick-and-place and selective solder machines in the Midwest,” said Dave Trail, Principal of Horizon Sales.
