Mahindra Announces Red Carpet Dealers

HOUSTON (March 28, 2012) – Houston-based Mahindra USA, the number one selling tractor in the world based on volume, recently announced the Mahindra dealers that have achieved the level of “Red Carpet” as part of the tractor giant’s first ever Dealer Excellence Program. Mahindra recognized 26 dealers from across North America that scored a minimum of 850 points on a maximum scale of 1,000 points on several criteria that aligned them with the Mahindra vision.
