ORLANDO – Flooring America and Flooring Canada awarded its Soft Surface Supplier Partner of the Year Award to Beaulieu of America for the second year in a row. Flooring America is one of the nation’s largest floor covering cooperatives with over 500 stores and was started in 1999. Beaulieu of America is the nation’s third largest carpet maker. “Their service excellence in the field and a commitment from their management team to persevere and grow made them a clear choice for this award,” said Randy Upson, vice president Flooring America/Canada-IDG.
“What a proud moment for all of us at Beaulieu,” said Ken Sherwood, vice president for national accounts at Beaulieu of America. “Last year we won supplier of the year for
the first time in our company’s history. This year, our team’s commitment allowed us to win this prestigious award for the second time! We appreciate the support of the members and staff of Flooring America–Flooring Canada.”
Beaulieu supplies the popular Resista Refresh odor controlling carpet to Flooring America and Flooring Canada dealers. In December, Flooring America joined with Beaulieu’s Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort that continues through January 31, with donations to the Red Cross in New York and New Jersey.
