The Daiwa Corporation has been named as Vendor of the Year by one of North America’s biggest outdoor sports distributors.

Big Rock Sports, which supplies more than 15,000 US retailers with products from over 1,200 manufacturers, made the announcement during ICAST in Orlando, Florida.

Other recipients included the Rapala VMC Corporation (Lure Vendor of the Year) and Eagle Claw (Terminal Tackle Vendor of the Year).

“The recipients of these awards epitomise the best of the fishing and marine industries,” said Dave Martin, President of Big Rock’s Fishing, Camping and Marine Division. “We feel it’s important to recognise our vendor partners who go the extra mile to ensure that our industry thrives today and well into the future.

“Daiwa has once again proved that it is at the forefront of innovation and acutely aware of the importance of products being profitable for today’s independent retailer.”

“We at Daiwa are very proud to be given the Big Rock Sports Vendor of the Year Award. This is a great honour and we appreciate the recognition,” said Tom Komatsu, President of the Daiwa Corporation. “Daiwa works hard to bring the latest technologies, innovation and strong value to the market. It takes great partnerships like this one with Big Rock Sports to grow our mutual businesses.”
