Mahindra recognized 26 dealers from across North America that scored a minimum of 850 points on a maximum scale of 1,000 points on several criteria that aligned them with the Mahindra vision.

Points were scored on categories that ranged from customer support, sales penetration and inventory management to business planning and training.

In addition, Mahindra USA revealed the dealers with the top three scores: Dave’s Tractor, Inc. in Red Bluff, California; Crane’s Outdoor Power Equipment in Canaan, Connecticut; and Dubay’s Tractor Center LLC in Danielson, Connecticut.

“Our Red Carpet Dealer Excellence Program compares, recognizes and rewards dealerships that bring Mahindra USA products to market, that provide the necessary professional support for Mahindra products," said Cleo Franklin, Mahindra USA’s vice president, marketing and strategic planning.

"They must also exhibit the qualities that are the embodiment of a true Red Carpet Dealer: quality, image, success, professionalism, dedication, customer-focus, and market leadership. Each of these dealers has proven to be worthy of the Red Carpet Status.”
