March 01, 2010
DALTON GA, March 2010 – Beaulieu of America was recently recognized by Sherwin-Williams as its “Vendor of the Year” in the floor covering category for this past year of 2009. This is the first time the carpet leader has received the award from the largest single-source supplier of high-quality paints, stains, masonry coatings and brand-name wall and floor coverings.
“Sherwin-Williams is one of the top floor covering retailers in the country. To receive this recognition from them is a tremendous honor for us,” commented Jeff Meadows, Executive VP of Beaulieu Residential. “The company is a strong floor covering supplier in the property management segment, and our Beaulieu Property Management Solutions collection with Magic Fresh has been a top seller for them.”
“Our relationship with Beaulieu has benefited our customers,” remarked Pete Sedlak , vice president of marketing and purchasing for Sherwin-Williams. “Their service to us over the years, as well as their product quality, has been exemplary.”
Beaulieu introduced its carpet line specifically designed for the multi-family housing industry at the National Apartment Association show in June 2009. It is the only carpet treated with Magic Fresh that reduces odors from pets, smoking or cooking in the home for the life of the carpet. By effectively reducing common, stubborn odors, carpet treated with Magic Fresh can actually preserve the value and desirability of rental property.
