32nd ANNUAL ARTS AWARDS

ARTS Awards Winner

32nd ANNUAL ARTS AWARDS — Dallas, TX –  January 7th, 2022

We WON!!!

To win the ARTS Awards is particularly exciting, as it recognizes, in addition to outstanding product design and innovation, the work of our entire staff of 245 people in Castleton, Vermont. We want to thank all of our customers for your support.

The night before the gala, our ARDESIA LED Pendant was displayed next to the other three finalists’ product entries. Our energy efficient LED with our innovative light-guide, along with the use of natural Vermont black slate in the design, clearly impressed the judges.

Friday evening was the ARTS gala event in Dallas. Our Hubbardton Forge table was filled with staff from Vermont, and, of course, our fearless leader and CEO, Maria Mullen. Excitement was building throughout the evening, as the Lighting award is always the finale of the program. When the announcers read off the finalists, “and the winner is… HUBBARDTON FORGE!”— there was joy and pride felt by all at the Hubbardton Forge table in winning this award for the fourth time.

Maria spoke on behalf of our entire team, all of whom play a role in our company’s success, “We have 245 people in Castleton, Vermont who do everything. Designers, engineers, welders, forgers, finishers, assemblers, and others…They put in their A-game every single day. I couldn’t be more appreciative or more proud of our team.”
