Local Reno Company & Kawasaki Motors Corp Have Something in Common - Strength in Numbers

“Kawasaki Strong” was the theme for the National Dealer Business meeting in San Diego, September 5th-7th, 2013.  The Applied Companies in Reno Nevada participated in the meeting with Kawasaki Motors Corp through their division called Kawasaki Dealer’s Benefits Company, or KDBC. KDBC is headquartered in Reno, Nevada and has a strategic business alliance with Kawasaki Motors Corp. With more than twenty years’ experience in insurance and professional employer services, KDBC offers an exclusive program to Kawasaki dealers around the country that helps small business owners save time, lower risk and increase the value of their organization.

Kawasaki has a strong legacy and heritage that no other Japanese OEM can even come close to matching. Bullet trains, cargo ships, subway cars, jets, robotics and a dynamic Powersports line-up just to mention a few.  They have strength in numbers, strength in innovative engineers, designer, factory team members, support team members and strong strategic business alliances with companies like KDBC.

Jim Annis, CEO of KDBC said, “Our clients sell “FUN”, and we handle the non-productive administrative functions that not only gives them more time but also protects their business interests.  We rolled out the KDBC program less than two years ago and we already have a presence in twenty five states.” “The response to the program has been phenomenal and we expect huge growth for the remainder of this year and through 2014,” says Annis.
