27th Annual ARTS Awards We WON!!! An exuberant team from Hubbardton Forge was on-hand at the 27th Annual ARTS Awards in Dallas on Friday. Excitement was building throughout the evening, as the Lighting award was slated as the last one on the program. When the announcers read off the four finalists (Currey & Company, Fine Art, Hubbardton Forge, Visual Comfort), and then announced—“And the winner is… HUBBARDTON FORGE!”—there were cheers everywhere in the audience, to say nothing of the joy and pride felt by all at the Hubbardton Forge table in winning this award for the first time. Our fearless leader and CEO, Bob Dillon, took to the podium to accept the award, and spoke on behalf of our 225 employees, all of whom play a role in our company’s success. We are humbled by the industry’s recognition of Hubbardton Forge, and are particularly proud of receiving an award that rewards, first and foremost, great product design and innovation, as well as the efforts of our entire team, from customer service and sales to creative and marketing, to engineering and environmentally-sensitive manufacturing.
