105-Year-Old Boston Showcase Presents First-Ever Rep Of The Year Award


Boston Showcase Co. has presented Nils Ahlin of Dave Swain Associates with its first-ever Manufacturer’s Rep of the Year Award. The 2017 honor, voted on by Boston Showcase employees, cited Ahlin was the year’s winner based on his reliability, responsiveness and availability to staff.

The family-owned and -operated dealer cited Ahlin for helping increase the volume of several key manufacturers in recent years. Boston Showcase President Alan Starr says of Ahlin, “I don’t know if you have other customers and I’m sure you do, but you make us feel as though we are your only one.”
