Denver-May 2017- Henkel has presented Krayden with the Aerospace Distributor Partner of the Year award for 2016. This award, rarely offered by Henkel, recognizes Krayden for achieving the highest level of project closures as well as sales growth. Significant contributions to the increase of Henkel’s sales volume throughout the year and a track record of going above and beyond to complete shared missions have earned Krayden the title of Henkel’s Aerospace Distributor Partner of the Year. This award highlights the emphasis that Krayden places on consistent business to business excellence.

It is our mission to be a noteworthy resource for our partners, and we strive daily to achieve strong mutually beneficial relationships.

Henkel is recognizing Krayden as a valuable partner due to the company’s proven ability to increase their sales growth. According to your customers, why Krayden?
“The customers need more than simple logistics of aerospace materials. While most suppliers recognize pure sale growth Henkel instead recognizes Krayden’s ability to bring Henkel products to the correct application or need at the customer location.”
Has the cause for your customer’s consistent return to Krayden for their aerospace products (or products in general) been made apparent to you?
“Definitely. Many products can be sourced from a variety of places, but customers return to Krayden because when there is an issue, new application, or technical question, the Krayden Technical Sellers are the best trained and most advanced overall in distribution.”
Part of the award’s purpose is to recognize Krayden’s high level of project closures. Does any project or group of projects stand out in your mind as cause to deem Krayden a worthy recipient of this award?
“Not really, whether it’s a rocket, satellite, aircraft or drone, Krayden is bringing new Henkel products to customer applications every day.”
Big picture wise, what do you hope for regarding Krayden’s future in the Aerospace market, and how do you intend to achieve this position?
“To be recognized as the leader in Technical distribution. We always know that while we do not have the most lines, we know more about the ones we have than anyone.”
