Nikwax®, the global leader in aftercare products for outdoor performance gear and apparel, has named KNS Reps as its Agency of the Year. KNS has represented Nikwax in the Rocky Mountain region for multiple years. This is their second time earning Nikwax’s Agency of the Year Award. Because of their sales success, and recognition, KNS Reps earned a substantial year-end bonus and will receive a higher commission rate for the next year

“KNS did a great job this past year and surpassed multiple Nikwax agency goals set for the Rocky Mountain territory,” said Brian Davidson, Nikwax NA President. “They implemented Nikwax preseason and dealer support programs to the fullest, making sure their retail accounts took advantage of every program Nikwax offered. They also lead our agency groups in opening new accounts as well as in the implementation of store merchandising programs. The entire team worked hard and we saw improvement across multiple market segments and from key accounts to brand new customers.”
