TORLYS Smart Floors recently won the BILD (The Building Industry and Land Development Association) Manufacturer/Supplier of the Year award. This is the first time that Manufacturer/Supplier of the Year has been awarded to a flooring exclusive company. The BILD Associate Awards are handed out at the end of each year in order to recognize companies who are highly rated by their homebuilder clients for quality and service as partners in the building process.

Since 1921, BILD has been the voice of the land development, home building and professional renovation industry in the Greater Toronto Area and through the Associate Awards, recognizes those that are highly rated and respected within and by the building industry itself. There are currently 1,350 members in the association.

TORLYS Inc. has been a strong supplier to the home building community in the Ontario market for over 20 years and has been a member of BILD association since 1995. A dedicated team of TORLYS professionals services the flooring needs of homebuilders and offers a wide selection of flooring products such as hardwood, laminate, cork, leather and TerraWood floors.

“Everyone at TORLYS is absolutely honoured to be the recipient of this year’s BILD Manufacturer/Supplier of the Year Associate Award. We pride ourselves in providing excellent service and innovative quality flooring products to the builder community, but we couldn’t have achieved this award without the wonderful relationships we have developed with our customers over the years. We thank them for recognizing our efforts in this way,” said Peter Barretto, TORLYS president and ceo.

TORLYS joins other notable companies who have received this award in the past including Olympia Tile & Stone, Tamarack Lumber, Reliance Home Comfort and Newmar Windows.
