It’s that time again when talented trimmers across the industry compete to see who’s got the chops to take home the “NC Interior of the Year” award.
NC Carpet Binding & Equipment is excited to host the competition for a third straight year. No, the coronavirus pandemic will not nix plans. In fact, the contest and the excitement surrounding it might even help keep shops motivated and inspired during these tough times.
“We have no intention of doing much of anything different. We are who we are and nothing will ever change that. It’s my hope the contest will still matter to trimmers,” said Mal Maher, CEO.
“I called Brodie Smith of Douglass Interior Products and they’re on board again. Their continued generosity and support of this contest has been tremendous,” said Maher.
Douglass Interior Products, who cosponsor the annual contest, are also excited to get things going.
“We are really excited to once again be part of this great contest to support upholsterers from all over,” said Nick Roberts, director of Marketing for Douglass.
“Mal and the team at NC Carpet have been so generous to include us again and being that it is the third year, we are happy to see this contest quickly become a SEMA institution.”
