Mattress licensing group Englander Sleep Products, based in Olive Branch, Miss., held an awards presentation during its Dec. 8 board of directors meeting in Rome, Ga.
The presentation and board meeting are annual events held at a different Englander licensee each year and include a review of the host plant’s best manufacturing practices.
Kevin Toman, Englander president, presided over the awards ceremony.
Mark Savel, general manager of Englander Northeast in North Billerica, Mass., accepted the Manufacturing Excellence Award.
The criteria for manufacturing excellence are based on an assessment using a random teardown of an Englander product, Toman said. Components, tailoring and overall product quality are evaluated on a point system.
Harvey Freeman, president of Englander Mid-Atlantic in Philadelphia, was presented with the Outstanding Sales Achievement Award.
When presenting Freeman with the sales award, Toman said, “Englander is proud to present the award for outstanding accomplishment in achieving the highest percentage increase in the group and increasing Englander market share in the mid-Atlantic.”
