Fuse Alliance presented its 2014 annual supplier and member awards at the buying group’s recent annual convention in Las Vegas.

Dal-Tile captured the Best Product Award. The product category is awarded to the supplier who has a product collection with the most depth and range of collection, aesthetic and market acceptance, and an overall value of offering. Schönox was presented the Best Support award for outstanding local, regional and national support of members throughout the Fuse network. Finally, Tandus Centiva captured two awards—Best Service Award, which is presented to the supplier with outstanding customer service, systems and technology, and communication, and for the first time, captured Supplier of the Year.

For six years in a row, Johnsonite has won Supplier of the Year. With stellar customer service to the organization’s members, Johnsonite received many kudos in the member surveys and finished a very close second, noted Geoff Gordon, Fuse’s executive director.
