PPG has given ACS of Georgia its Platinum Distributor of the Year Award. The presentation was made at the annual PPG Platinum Distributor Conference held Feb. 12-14 in Las Vegas at the Green Valley Ranch Resort.
Dave Marlow and J. P. Uren, co-owners of the Chamblee, Ga.-based company, accepted the award from John Leavy, director of the PPG Platinum Distributor program.
“This is quite an honor,” said Marlow. “J. P. and I are thrilled, and I know everyone at ACS will be just as excited. PPG has been extremely supportive and helped keep us focused and aggressive in the marketplace.”
Marlow and Uren teamed up and bought ACS in 2006 and turned it into a PPG Platinum Distributor that same year. When they purchased ACS, the company had five locations in Georgia. Today, ACS has 44 employees in seven locations in metropolitan Atlanta and a sister company with locations in southern Georgia and Alabama.
“ACS of Georgia has done a remarkable job,” said Leavy. “Dave and J. P. and their employees consistently exemplify the attributes of a successful Platinum Distributor industry knowledge, technical expertise, a commitment to customer service and a concerted effort to grow their business.”
PPG’s Platinum Distributor Program is a loyalty and support program for PPG single-line distributors. To be considered for the award, a Platinum Distributor must show consistent sales growth and use the program’s training and business development offerings.
