Tel Hanan Israel, February 2013 - Tabor Electronics is proud to announce Mr. Shingo Haraguchi as the winner of its best Salesman of the year award. Mr. Haraguchi has been chosen out of hundreds of salesmen worldwide, which are selling the Tabor product line every day, for his outstanding achievement of increasing Tabor sales dramatically in Japan and breaking 5 years sales record.

Mr. Haraguchi serves as the Tabor product line manager at Toyo Corporation in Japan for 9 years. Haraguchi has been with Toyo Corporation for 22 years. Haraguchi holds a bachelor of engineering in electronic engineering.

Along with the award, Mr. Shingo Haraguchi will be presented with a check for the sum of $1,500 for his outstanding performance in the past year.

"It is a great honor for me to receive Tabor’s Best Salesman of the year award”, said Mr. Haraguchi. “In recent years, Japan went through some rough times, from the economic crisis in 2008, through the devastating earthquake and tsunami in 2011 and the subsequent second economy crisis caused by the prolonged deflation. Being able to recover and achieve best results in five years, despite the difficult economic situation, makes me even more delighted and proud. I was able to win this prestige award, due to outstanding team effort of Toyo’s sales team, who worked closely together and supported me at all time. In my eyes, this award was given for our best teamwork!”

Mr. Shin-Ichiro Mizuta, Executive Officer, 1st sales department at Toyo Corporation commented: "I am very proud of Haraguchi's receipt of such an honorable award.

Mizuta added: “I’d like to thank Tabor for recognizing our achievement. I’m definite that our team we’ll continue the hard work prompting and selling the Tabor product line to achieve even better results this coming year.”

“It is a great pleasure to honor Mr. Haraguchi with our Salesman of the year award", said Mr. Shimon Katzav, Tabor’s International Sales Manager. “Mr. Haraguchi is one of the best Tabor product line managers around the world and his extensive application knowledge and outstanding Tabor product line understanding are admirable.”
