American Standard Brands recently was named Ferguson’s Showroom Plumbing Vendor of the Year. The company also received a Ferguson Featured Counter Product Award for its Colony Soft Centerset bathroom faucet promotion.

A Vendor of the Year award was given in three categories — plumbing, lighting and appliances — and was based on multiple criteria, including overall sales performance, channel marketing engagement and execution, and the level of sales representative support provided.

The Featured Counter Product recognition was based on successful marketing and sales execution of a promotion for the Colony Soft bath faucet in nearly 600 Ferguson-blended branch counters across the United States.

“We are so pleased to receive this prestigious recognition from a valued partner such as Ferguson,” said Steven Delarge, CEO and president of LIXIL Water Technology Americas, American Standard, DXV. “Ferguson’s influence on the marketplace cannot be overstated. We deeply appreciate this opportunity to work closely in partnership with a leading supplier of commercial and residential plumbing products.”

Award winners were announced at the annual Ferguson Enterprises Vendor Summit in Williamsburg, Va., on Oct. 21. Accepting both awards on behalf of American Stadard was Bert Magladry, manager of U.S. trade sales for the company.
