The QUIKRETE Companies, the manufacturer of packaged concrete products for the building and home improvement markets, has been awarded a 2014 Golden Hammer Award in the building materials category from Home Channel News.
Since 1985, the annual Golden Hammer Awards have honored excellence within different categories of the home improvement industry. Recipients of the awards are selected by home improvement retailers, distributors, and wholesalers based on four categories: category management, inventory management, new product innovation, and quality control.
“For more than 75 years QUIKRETE has been committed to helping home improvement retailers meet market demand by offering the most comprehensive line of concrete and masonry building and repair products available,” said Frank Owens, Vice President Marketing for The QUIKRETE Companies. “We appreciate being recognized by customers for our efforts in areas like new product development, distribution, advertising and marketing, and quality control.”
A number of initiatives during the past year helped QUIKRETE earn this prestigious honor including the introduction of a new line of concrete stains and coatings, the launch of a new television ad campaign, the expansion of its online how-to video library, and the acquisition of Custom Building Products.
