truck accessories ARE A.R.E.

Utility trucks: A.R.E. Accessories, a manufacturer of fiberglass truck caps and hard tonneau covers, was chosen as a winner of the 2015 Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Award. The award is designed to recognize innovative and dynamic for-profit, privately-held businesses in Stark County, and A.R.E. demonstrated excellence in several key areas to earn this distinction.

With a strong presence in the Stark County business community, over 700 employees in three ISO-9001 2008 certified manufacturing facilities and over 45 years of truck accessory industry leadership, A.R.E. has experienced continuous growth due to strong demand for the company's quality-built truck caps and tonneau covers. The company focuses on product innovation for both consumer and commercial product offerings, and has received a Ford Project Excellence Award in 2014, two General Motors Design Awards in 2013, and a Consumer's Digest "Best Buy" Award.

Another deciding factor in A.R.E.'s selection was the company's consistent, outstanding customer service. A.R.E. has a network of more than 650 authorized independent dealers in the U.S. and Canada.

According to Todd Hoffman, president and CEO, A.R.E. Accessories, "It is such an honor to be presented with this prestigious award in our own backyard. A.R.E. would not be the company it is today without its great team members, most who are from Stark County communities. To be recognized locally for our innovation, growth, longevity, and involvement within our community is a true testament to the quality people we have working in our company."
