CarpetsPlus Color Tile and Carpetland stores, part of Alliance Flooring Inc., recently recognized Beaulieu of America as “Soft Surface Vendor of the Year.” This was the first time for Beaulieu to be so honored by the nationwide chain of over 450 stores. The award was presented at Alliance Flooring’s annual convention at the Orlando Gaylord Hotel in Orlando.

According to Mike Kinker, vp national accounts for Beaulieu, the carpet maker was responsible for one of the most successful display programs featuring Stainmaster with Magic Fresh, Beaulieu’s built-in proprietary odor reducing treatment.

“We are proud to accept this award on behalf of the entire Beaulieu family. We also want to recognize the Alliance Group and their CarpetsPlus and Carpetland members, for without their acceptance of our products and programs none of this would be possible,” Kinker said.
