Luxury Products Group Awards STRASSER Supplier of the Year 2021
Seattle-based STRASSER has been named Supplier of the Year by Luxury Products Group for its commitment in crafting the highest quality bathroom vanities, furniture, and accessories in the USA, along with their steadfast support and partnership with LPG, the plumbing industry’s premier buying group.
Executive Director Jeff MacDowell said, “STRASSER is a tremendous partner with Luxury Products Group, and under the leadership of Peter Ollestad, STRASSER’s Vice President of Sales, they have successfully garnered the unwavering support of fellow industry members as well as our team here at LPG.” He further explains that STRASSER has set the standard of achievement amongst LPG members and will be officially honored at the next IMARK/ LPG Annual Meeting.
According to MacDowell, for LPG’s suppliers to be considered, they must meet a certain selection criterion, as well as go above and beyond in supporting the initiatives of the group. “STRASSER was this year’s clear
choice, and I am thrilled to present the award to Ollestad on behalf of the manufacturer’s entire team,” he said, adding, “The generations of family members working at STRASSER’s facility and their plans for continuing family involvement, are inspirational.”
“It’s a tremendous honor to receive this award and recognition,” said Peter Ollestad. “To be selected in a field of first-class suppliers is truly humbling, and the award offers a tangible statement recognizing the positive culture here at STRASSER.” The Vice President of Sales further explains that the STRASSER family is proud to produce high quality products, as well as provide first class customer service, and concludes, “I would like to thank LPG/Imark, Jeff MacDowell and the advisory committee, and of course all our showroom partners and vendors in the group. You all make STRASSER and me better.”
MacDowell elaborated that STRASSER represents an exemplary example of the kind of leadership the industry needs now, and explained the award is being presented to the company in large part because of Ollestad’s collaborative efforts with suppliers in support of LPG and its members. “This has been a year of unprecedented growth for LPG with many of our supplier partners,” he said, adding, “We are lucky to have all of them, and happy to recognize and celebrate a job well done."
