NISSCO Awards 2014 Sustainability Honors to Americo Manufacturing
Americo Manufacturing was presented with the 2014 Sustainability Award by the NISSCO Buying Group at the ISSA Show in Orlando. NISSCO President, Mark Bozich, made the presentation to Americo Senior Executives with many NISSCO Distributors on hand for the event.
As Mr. Bozich noted, “Americo embodies what we look for in NISSCO Preferred Suppliers; an undying commitment to the independent distributor. Their partnership with NISSCO predates the employment of all but one NISSCO employees, and that is a fact that says a lot about AMERICO as a company. They never waiver from the model we hold sacrosanct: Supplier to Distributor to End User.
It is tough to differentiate floor pads, especially in this day of racing to lower cost by cutting corners, using lesser and lower quality materials. AMERICO has taken a better path by reversing the trend and enhancing the traditional; thereby giving the distributor a tool to differentiate.
50 million floor pads enter landfills every year and by offering 100 percent recycled PET fiber, plus water based latex binder instead of phenolic resins they offer a pad formulated for enhanced biodegradation. Let the others sell the cheap pads, AMERICO offers the distributor a tool that will make their business stand out and in the process do their part to make this a better planet.”
