At Master Electronics’ recent 5th annual MAKO (Masters’ Annual Kick-Off) event, Master’s Senior Vice President of Sales & Product, Riad Nizam, presented C&K with Masters’ coveted 2017 “Supplier Excellence Award.”   While presenting the award, Mr. Nizam stated, “Mirroring Master Electronics’ Core Values, C&K pursues similar company ideals; the importance of solid working relationships, out-of-the-box solutions, creating customer loyalty, and most importantly, exhibiting entrepreneurial behavior.  C&K’s significant regard to these goals makes them a supplier worthy of this prestigious award.  We consider C&K to be a stalwart partner of Master’s in every sense of the word.”

Accepting the award, Mr. Phillip Gerard, C&K’s V.P. of Sales & General Manager of the Americas, replied, “We are honored to receive such recognition from such an innovative partner. C&K’s recent growth has been greater than the market average – and we intend to continue to expand our presence and offering to a broad customer base. Our partnership with Master will certainly be a catalyst and enabler to this growth.”
