MAPEI recently announced it has received the Fishman Vendor Partner of the Year Award from Fishman Flooring Solutions. The award is reportedly given to companies that “demonstrate the highest standards for training Fishman’s sales team, customers and contractors in the proper use of the vendor’s products. Recipients must also provide superior marketplace support for the products on which they provided the training.”

“The pace of new products and cutting-edge technologies being introduced into the flooring installation marketplace today is unprecedented,” said Bill Mabeus, Fishman executive vice president. “This puts a premium on manufacturers ensuring that distributors and installers know how, when and why to use them. Over the years, MAPEI has distinguished itself in terms of superior training and marketplace support for its new products, and we wanted to recognize the company as a role model for others in our industry to follow.”

“MAPEI is honored to receive this award from Fishman,” said Jeff Johnson, business manager for MAPEI’s floor covering installation systems. “This award is the recognition of all the hard work our sales team puts into the partnership with Fishman Flooring and also recognizes just how important this relationship is between our two companies. Without a doubt, we will continue to provide the same, if not better, support going forward and look forward to many more successful years to come.”
