Ferro's Brian Donnelly and Mitch Hamilton with their 2020 Doosan dealer awardsClick image to enlargeMachine tool distributor and service provider Ferro Technique has picked up numerous awards for exceptional performance and service during the Annual Doosan Dealer Meeting.

Ferro’s president Brian Donnelly said his company faced many challenges in 2020 and thanked his dedicated team at Ferro Technique, who helped guide the company to one of its best years for sales.

“It was a surprise because when the pandemic started, they shut everything down,” said Donnelly. “For three months we saw almost no business and weren’t able to ship very much. But the year ended up being one of the top five years since we have been in business since 1952.”

In 2020, Ferro delivered more than 125 Doosan machines to its customers. It was also awarded with a Century Award—its fifteenth in the last 20 years—which is granted annually by Doosan to companies with sales exceeding 100 machines.

Along with those two accolades, Ferro was named Top Performer for the Northeast Division by Doosan and was also recognized for Outstanding Sales and Service Performance for the region.

“It’s always an accomplishment because the other dealers are great dealers too. It’s a great feeling to know that we’ve performed better than anyone else in our division,” said Donnelly.
