Metropolitan Car-o-liner (MCI) attended its first-ever Car-O-Liner Global Conference in June, 2008. The conference, held every other year in Sweden, brings together Car-O-Liner distributors from all over the world to review new products in development, discuss industry trends, and share best practices.

During the conference, attendees — in 18th century period costumes supplied by the host — took part in a formal banquet held at historic Sundbyholms castle in Eskilstuna (see photo at right). At the banquet, Metropolitan Car-o-liner was honored as Car-O-Liner’s North American Distributor of the Year for 2007. The award recognizes superior sales performance among Car-O-Liner’s 25 distributors across the U.S. and Canada.

Says Dave Demarest, Jr., “We’re delighted that the efforts of the Metropolitan Car-o-liner team on behalf of our customers were recognized on a global scale, and we look forward to keeping the momentum going through 2008 and beyond.”


Presenting the 2007 Distributor of the Year award to Dave Demarest Sr. and Dave Demarest Jr. is Jeff Kern, president of Car-O-Liner Company, and Anders Felling, president of Car-O-Liner AB.
