Two Englander licensees, Englander Midwest in Chicago and Englander Northwest in Tualatin, Ore., were honored for outstanding performance in sales and manufacturing quality, respectively, at the Las Vegas Market Jan. 28-Feb. 1.

Kevin Toman, president and chief executive officer of the Olive Branch, Miss.-based licensing group, presented the 2012 performance awards at the Englander showroom following a board meeting.

Ed Ciolkosz, owner of Englander Midwest, was recognized for achieving sales increases greater than 30% in 2012.

John Hagglund, owner of Englander Northwest, accepted the award for manufacturing excellence after his plant earned the highest quality scores in 2012.

“We believe in publicly recognizing each year those companies in our organization that have attained the best records in the critical areas of sales development and product quality,” Toman said. “Both of these factories turned in outstanding performances last year and we’re very proud to announce their respective achievements.”
