SherrillTree of Greensboro, North Carolina honored Samson as its first ever Vendor of the Year at its Vendor’s Summit in mid-May.


Christine Ricks, SherrillTree purchasing manager, was responsible for overseeing the selection process. “Samson has been a SherrillTree vendor since the very first catalog was distributed. In addition to extremely high-quality products, Samson is very easy to work with.” Ricks said. “Jim Cass [sales] and Linda Hughes [customer service] are our Samson representatives. They always go the extra mile for us and our customers. Jim has even called one of our customers that had questions about climbing lines to review the products and specifications with him directly.”

Christine Ricks said, “Samson’s product literature really distinguishes it from the competition. It goes well beyond mere product specifications into the safe and efficient use of those products in a critical application.”

Jim Cass has represented Samson to SherrillTree for several years. While he was as surprised as the other reps that the selection was taking place, he wasn’t surprised that Samson rose to the top. “The quality of our product is second to none and our delivery times are the best in the industry. We maintain an extensive inventory of arborist products, we ship on time every time, and our customer service outshines the competition.”
