American OEM Wood Floors (American OEM) awarded Herregan Distributors Inc. out of Eagan, Minnesota the honor of the 2017 American Spirit Award, which represents the company’s top selling distributor from the previous year. Herregan is one of the company’s founding distributors, carrying the American OEM engineered wood floors under their private label program, “Canoe Bay” since 2015. The unique award is custom made by employees in the American OEM plant outside of Nashville, Tennessee to represent and celebrate the success of hand-crafted, American-made products in the industry.
The leadership teams from both companies have a close partnership and have experienced much mutual growth over the last year. “The Herregan team and field representatives are among the finest in the industry, and we are fortunate to call them business partners and friends,” says Randy Schrecengost, VP of Sales for American OEM. “It is a strong relationship that we look forward to growing in 2018 through the addition of the Hearthwood product line,” which is American OEM’s new brand of design-leading, American-made hardwood, which Herregan will also represent in their footprint.
The award was presented in the Hearthwood Booth at the 2018 International Surfaces Event. Funsten Distributing in Manteca, California, was the 2016 recipient, another founding distributor for American OEM.
