Valley Performance Premiere Dealers

Each year, Valley customers complete surveys on the performance of their local Valley dealers in three key areas: serviceparts, and sales. Through our growers' voices, as well as through other activities and continued education, top-performing Valley dealers are elevated to the prestigious tiers of our Performance Program. The Performance Program dealer status isn't decided by Valley, it's decided by what our growers say.

In addition, each year, Valley® Irrigation recognizes its dealers who have surpassed expectations. These are dealers who have shown a commitment to bettering their business, from brand to customer service, and from product offerings to in-store display. Valley distinguishes three levels of dealers in its Dealer Performance Program: Performance, Performance Plus and Performance Premier.

In January 2016, Valley applauded six Valley dealerships for achieving Performance Premier status – those that excel at the highest level. Among those 6 dealerships, Tennessee Tractor was recognized as the “Cream of the Crop”.

In order for dealerships to reach the Performance Premier status, which is the top-tier designation, they must demonstrate extraordinary focus on service, aftermarket support and sales. These dealers focus on include an unrelenting commitment to in-season service and off-season preventative maintenance programs, high levels of professionalism in design capabilities, full service offerings, providing technology expertise and guidance to their customers, and going the extra mile for their customers.
