Industry Retailers Recognize Entry Door Leader with Prestigious Award
Maumee, OHIO, (May 5, 2010) - In recognition of its innovation in product design, Therma-Tru is pleased to announce that the company has received a Golden Hammer Award. Sponsored by Home Channel News, the annual awards honor companies for their commitment to supporting retailer sales and marketing and partnership efforts. Therma-Tru is uniquely positioned to help all of its retail partners by continually introducing energy efficient, stylish and affordable products to the marketplace that meet the needs of both the retailer and end consumer.
The Golden Hammer Award recognizes vendors demonstrating industry excellence in 32 product categories. Therma-Tru outperformed more than 20 competitors in the doors category to obtain first-place honors. This is the second Golden Hammer the company has received. Therma-Tru was awarded a similar honor in the same category in 2007.
“Therma-Tru is committed to creating welcoming doors that give your home curb appeal,” says Jerry Oleshansky, VP of Marketing and the Home Center business for Therma-Tru. “In a time when homeowners are looking at which home-improvement projects bring the best return on their investment, we are proud to be recognized for producing high-quality products and adding value at every level from the retailer’s aisles to the homeowner’s entryway.”
Ballots were submitted to buyers and merchandise managers in America’s top 500 home center and building material retailers and dealers. Retailers and dealers were asked to select one supplier from each of the 32 product categories, which they felt excelled in strategic partnerships, based on criteria such as category and inventory management, new product innovation and quality control.
Awards were presented at the Golden Hammer Awards Reception on Tuesday, May 4, 2010, at the National Hardware Show in the Las Vegas Convention Center.
