“Returning to the winner’s circle as Best Overall Manufacturer for the fourth consecutive year is a huge honor that we couldn’t have accomplished without our hardworking employees and amazing customers,” said Jeff Meadows, president of residential sales. “We strive to produce the best products—flooring that is innovative, versatile, stylish and high performing—with superior service in order for our retailers to offer the best to consumers.”
Sponsored by Floor Covering News and Informa Exhibitions, proprietors of The International Surface Event (TISE), the Award of Excellence competition was established as a way for manufacturers’ customers—retailers, distributors, designers, installers and specifiers—to honor the companies that they feel consistently provide the best service, professionalism of sales force, management responsiveness, value, design, B2B, handling of claims and ease of doing business.
The prestigious industry awards are voted on by independent retailers beginning at the annual Surfaces flooring trade show in January and continuing through March via online ballots.
“The Mohawk team is honored that retailers recognize us as a leader in innovation and recognize our products such as the industry’s only hypoallergenic soft flooring—Air.o; our SmartStrand franchise, now featuring groundbreaking carpet technology called ColorMax; and our revolutionary wood flooring, RevWood, for contributing to their business success and consumer satisfaction,” said Michel Vermette, president of residential carpet. “These awards reinforce their resounding endorsement of our products, and we are thankful for their commitment to Mohawk.”
