OW Lee, a manufacturer of high-end outdoor furniture, fire pits, and accessories located in Ontario, Calif., was honored with the Manufacturer of the Year Award for 2013 at the International Casual Furnishing Association Apollo Awards on September 19.
One manufacturer was honored in each of eight categories. Manufacturers were then judged on the following categories: design and quality of products, merchandising, customer service, ethics, communications and trade relations.
“We are very honored to be awarded Manufacturer of the Year,” said Terri Lee Rogers, President of OW Lee Co. “All of our employees work really hard to deliver the best and so this award means a lot to each and every one of us.”
This is OW Lee’s second year in a row winning the award, with previous honors in 2010 and 2012.
OW Lee was founded in 1947 in Pasadena, Calif., and manufactures fine wrought iron and wrought aluminum outdoor furniture and fire pits. It is one of the few remaining companies in the outdoor furniture industry that still manufactures in the USA.
