FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – May 14, 2018 – Valley Forge Fabrics won a Gold Stevie® Award in the “Company of the Year for Large Manufacturing” category in the 16th Annual American Business Awards® in May. More than 200 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners. Over 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including “Startup of the Year,” “Executive of the Year,” “Best New Product or Service of the Year,” “Marketing Campaign of the Year,” “Live Event of the Year,” and “App of the Year.” The winning nomination, called Diversification in Our Industry, centered on Valley Forge’s strategic plan to diversify the business. Historically the company sold only piece goods, but it has evolved to encompass finished products for the hospitality industry. These products include bedding and the fabrication and installation of window treatments, like roller blinds. “Our diversification into more complex textile products for hospitality allows us to provide more value to our customers,” says Diana Dobin, second-generation family leader of the business. “We are innovators at heart, and are deeply passionate makers who are very proud and motivated by manufacturing here in the United States.” Valley Forge Fabrics, Inc., is an over 40-year-old family-owned and operated company, and one of the world’s largest suppliers of decorative textiles for the hospitality industry.
