Each month, WQP features a dealer as Dealer of the Month. This spring, we conducted a survey to ask our readers which dealer of the 12 featured in 2014 they felt was deserving of the moniker “Dealer of the Year.” With a resounding 87% majority, they selected Scott Hillman of Integrity Plumbing & Water Treatment in Franklinville, N.Y., as the 2014 Dealer of the Year honoree.

WQP’s 2014 Dealer of the Year shares tips for success
Jim and Martha Rabb founded Rabb Water Systems in 1951 in Plymouth, Ind. Ten years later, they relocated to Warsaw, Ind., and the dealership has been a fixture in north-central Indiana for nearly 45 years.
Rabb Water has since expanded to five other locations, with a service area covering 27 counties. The Rabb family sold the business to Don and George Clemens in 1988. George was the Rabb’s son-in-law, so the dealership remains family owned.
