According to Jack Ball, sales manager for Tru-Power., “On behalf of the participating dealers we sincerely thank Maruyama for co-sponsoring this incredible trip. During our farewell banquet, many dealers came up to me and asked how many Maruyama products they need to buy to qualify for the next incentive trip. ‘We want to go again,’ they all said.”

The 57 participants were presented with a host of activities at the all-inclusive resort such as horseback riding, golf on the Robert Trent Jones championship course, snorkeling, swimming, sailing, sports fishing, canopy zip line tours, and jungle river cruise.

Maruyama Operations Manager Mark Dyos said, “Outstanding. That’s how best to describe the efforts Tru-Power did to launch and execute this incentive program with their dealers.
