Home & Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, July 1, 2008
The ceremony was held under a large festive tent at the Yunus Textile facilities here before an audience of company officials, journalists, politicians and well-wishers. Arthur Emmanuel, svp sourcing and retail import development, Wal-Mart, presented the award to Altaf Gul Muhammad, gm-operations, and Imran Tabba, a Yunus principal.
Emmanuel noted that the award is “not based on volume but consistent quality, service and a commitment” to excellence. Yunus, the parent of Kearny, N.J.-based Royale Linens, is a diversified producer of fashion bedding, window treatments and home decor accessories.
Altaf Gul Muhammad said winning the Wal-Mart award for the second time “was indeed a team effort. The members of the team have not been focused on the award itself but devoted in the desire to be a world class manufacturer.”
The ceremony was followed by an extensive tour of the Yunus manufacturing facilities.
