Local dealership received national designation from Marine Retailers Association of the Americas

AMSTERDAM, N.Y. – The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas (MRAA) has named Alpin Haus in Amsterdam, N.Y., among this year’s marine industry Great Dealerships to Work For. The dealership was honored on Dec. 7, 2022, at Dealer Week, the association’s annual conference and expo in Austin, Texas.

Alpin Haus was part of a record 27 dealership locations across North America that qualified for recognition by earning an overall score of 90% or better on the Marine Industry Certified Dealership Program’s annual Employee Satisfaction Survey. Administered anonymously through the MRAA, the survey asks employees of Marine Industry Certified Dealerships to answer 32 ranking questions about overall satisfaction regarding their unique dealership’s customer relations, employee satisfaction, leadership, management and reputation.

After their employees complete the survey and the dealership receives its 13-page survey report, the whole team meets and discusses what the dealership is doing well and what they could be doing better for their employee culture.

“The staff at Alpin Haus reported that employee satisfaction is high among their respective departments,” said Liz Keener, MRAA Certification Manager. “The dealership shares its values with its employees, and the team relies on the guidance of those values to deliver an exceptional customer experience.”

“It’s an honor to be named one of the MRAA’s Great Dealerships to Work For,” said Alpin Haus President Andy Heck. “Alpin Haus was founded by my father in 1964 and we’re proud to carry on his vision as a family-owned business. We believe in treating our employees like family. We owe our nearly 60 years of continued success to our team members’ dedication, support and expertise. We will keep doing our best for the people that give their all to Alpin Haus.”

Alpin Haus received the award and recognition on stage at the awards luncheon at Dealer Week.
