For the third straight year, the Ontario, Calif.-based manufacturer of high-end outdoor furniture earned the honor at the International Casual Furnishings Association’s Apollo Awards, held September 18.
OW Lee, a manufacturer of high-end outdoor furniture, fire pits, and accessories located in Ontario, Calif., was honored with their third straight Manufacturer of the Year Award win at the ICFA Apollo Awards on September 18. Manufacturers and specialty stores gathered to celebrate excellence in the Casual Furniture Industry.
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 feel very honored to receive the Manufacturer of the Year Award, and for the third year in a row too!” 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 fourth time out of the last five years winning this prestigious award. They also received the Manufacturer of the Year Award in 2010, 2012 and 2013.
OW Lee was founded in 1947 in Pasadena, Calif., manufacturing fine wrought iron and wrought aluminum outdoor furniture and fire pits. OW Lee manufactures heirloom quality products in Ontario, California and they are one of the few remaining companies in the outdoor furniture industry that still manufacture in the USA.
