Exotic hardwood flooring maker Ark Floors was honored as Top International Flooring Brand at the recent Domotex Asia/Chinafloor show in Shanghai. Additionally, Ark Floors' parent company, A&W Shanghai Woods Co., was named Top Chinese Flooring Brand.

"This recognition is a great source of pride, especially since it is the direct result of much effort from both companies to provide outstanding service to our markets," said Ira Lefkowitz, CEO of Ark. "We have exceptional products, a great team and a dedicated company behind us."

Ark Floors was launched two years ago in El Monte, Calif. The parent company, A&W Shanghai Woods, is one of the largest manufacturers of Brazilian timber products in China.
