For the past 22 years, Floor Covering News magazine and Informa Exhibitions have partnered to present the Awards of Excellence, the premier manufacturer recognition program in the floor covering industry. According to Floor Covering News, the program is a way for retailers, distributors, installers and design professionals to honor the companies they feel consistently provide the best design, service, value, performance, quality, professionalism of sales force management responsiveness, customer service, handling of claims, B2B and ease of doing business. After 2,200 votes were tallied by the publication, we are thrilled to announce that we are the recipient of the Award of Excellence in the Resilient: LVT B* category!
"It is a tremendous honor to be recognized by our retail partners as a company that provides significant value to their businesses. We recognize that in an ever-expanding luxury vinyl market our retailers have many choices. We are honored that retailers feel we are a company that offers a reliable partnership with products that allow them a profitable way to grow their business." Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Larry Browder said. "Every member of the Karndean Designflooring staff, at all levels of our organization, plays an important role in our success. We work extremely hard to ensure that we provide the best possible products, displays and service to our retailers, and that's something we will continue to deliver on."
According to Steve Feldman, publisher and editorial director of Floor Covering News, " We encourage all dealers to vote because the more ballots cast, the more significant these awards become. And that makes all manufacturers strive to improve the value they provide."
We thank each of our retail partners for their vote of confidence in us! For more details on this year's Awards of Excellence, visit Floor Covering News.
