Congratulations to All Those Nominated in the 2018 DPHA Professional Award Categories

DPHA publishes a Product of the Year (POTY) Guide for all nominated products in five different categories (Accessories, Furniture, Hardware, Plumbing Fixtures and Plumbing Water Delivery) which is distributed each year to all conference attendees and then is available to anyone for downloading from the website (to see the 2017 Product of the Year Guide, click here).  However, until last year we had never announced the nominated individuals and companies in the Professional award categories at any point in time.

This year the Awards Committee, under the leadership of David Crossley (Baci by Remcraft/Colonial Bronze) and Dennis Mezzapesa (TCB Sales), received a near record number of award nominations, and would therefore like to continue this tradition.  We would like to congratulate the following companies and individuals for being nominated in one of the six Professional award categories:
