Mississauga, ON:  ARI, Canada’s largest provider of fleet management services, has received the United Technologies Corporation (UTC) Supplier Gold award. The award is given annually to suppliers who provide and maintain “best in class” quality, delivery and customer service, and is given to less than one percent of UTC’s 50,000 suppliers. After just 18 months of partnership, ARI has reached Gold status faster than any other UTC supplier in history.

“We are extremely proud to be recognized so quickly by UTC, and with such a prestigious designation” said Chris Conroy. ARI’s senior vice-president of sales and service.

UTC’s Supplier Gold program was established to facilitate and accelerate superior supplier performance and to recognize suppliers for their exceptional performance. ARI was recognized for the successful management of more than 10,000 vehicles across eight different UTC divisions.

Examples of ARI’s achievements working with UTC include: the successful implementation of UTC’s entire North American fleet in just 30 days in 2010 and cost savings which surpassed expectations by more than double initial projections.
