University Electric Home Appliance Center of Santa Clara, Calif., was named the 2019 BrandSource Dealer of the Year for the PacRim Region on August 25 at the BrandSource National Convention & Expo at the Gaylord Texan in Dallas. Co-owners Mike and Adam Heintz were honored at the buying group’s annual awards ceremony, which was held amid the hoopla of its four-day confab.
The company, now celebrating its 100th year as a family-owned and operated local business, currently serves Bay Area consumers, designers, builders and remodelers from a 26,000-square-foot showroom and warehouse facility that the Heintz’s proudly describe as the region’s most modern and complete.
University also offers 60 appliance brands, including such premium nameplates as Bosch, Dacor, Fisher & Paykel, Gaggenau, Miele, Monogram, Thermador, Viking and Wolf, all presented by knowledgeable professionals with a combined 400 years of sales experience in the appliance industry.
The BrandSource Dealer of the Year awards are presented annually to members who have shown continued support of BrandSource and its direct suppliers. A Dealer of the Year must support the group by attending regional meetings as well as national events such as the Convention and Summit.
This year’s 14 winners, which were selected by each region’s membership, demonstrated a continued commitment to excellence in the retail industry and to their fellow BrandSource dealers.
