Las Vegas—Jefferson, Ind.-based Gilford Flooring was presented with Inhaus’ 2012 Distributor of the Year award during Surfaces 2013. Gilford, which services Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee and Ohio, increased sales of Inhaus products by 87% over 2011.

“We are pleased with our distribution partners,” said Daniel Lang, vice president of sales and marketing, Inhaus. “Our family of distributors is continuing to grow, as is their success with our product lines. As a whole, sales were up over 50% from 2011, and we are striving for continued growth in 2013.”

Like Inhaus, Gilford also had a strong 2012, according to Rob Purkins, vice president of residential sales. “It is suppliers like Inhaus and the products they provide that enable us to experience this growth. We are honored with this award primarily because it shows if a supplier and a distributor partner together and create a solid plan, great results can be achieved.”

Purkins said Inhaus has proven to be a quality supplier that continues to bring Gilford high-fashion products with impeccable quality at attractive pricing. “This combination of benefits has allowed us to pass all these attributes on to our customer base, which is a win-win for everyone.”

Inhaus also presented honorable mentions to distributors Southland Flooring, which services Florida, and Kennedy Flooring, which services central and western Canada.
