Feizy repeats as ‘Manufacturer of the Year’

Dallas – For the second consecutive year, Feizy Rugs was named Manufacturer of the Year by the Accessories Resource Team (ART) at its 20th annual awards event here Jan. 17.

This latest honor marks Feizy’s fifth ARTS award – which on a grander scope means now Feizy is the first and only area rug manufacturer to be named to the ARTS Hall of Fame.

“It is such an enormous honor to be nominated, let alone win this award,” said John Feizy, ceo “It’s a wonderful start to 2009 – a year in which we have so many exciting things planned, especially in the arena of product design.”

ARTS represents accessory manufacturers, retailers, representatives and other industry individuals and companies interested in promoting the decorative home accessories industry. The ARTS Awards honor companies and individuals as opposed to a specific design or product, “making a total package assessment of the nominees,” the association said.

For the 2009 event, more than 25,000 nomination ballots were sent out last year during various markets and to ART members nationwide. Finalists in the manufacturing category must create a presentation binder that showcases the company’s history, philosophy and overall corporate culture. In addition, a product sample must be submitted.

At the gala held at the Dallas Trade Mart, Feizy’s assistant to the ceo and executive account manager – Leah Feizy and Cameron Feizy, respectively – accepted the award in memory of Jeanne Carroll, Feizy Rugs’ former marketing director who was killed in November. Feizy’s ARTS award presentation binder was one of the last projects that Carroll supervised to completion prior to her untimely death.
