Annually, BELGARD (Northfield/Oldcastle) sponsors a World Class Awards Banquet that honors landscape contractors, architects, and engineers for being, “simply the best.” Awards are given based on creativity, craftsmanship, quality and aesthetics, as determined by an independent panel of hardscape industry experts. Additionally, deserving individuals and companies are recognized for their outstanding contributions to BELGARD, and for “raising the bar” in the industry as a whole.
Besser proudly sponsored the grand prize for the event held on 3 December. More than 300 attendees gathered at The Meadows Club in Rolling Meadows, Illinois and excitedly watched John Reedy, Besser Company Director of Sales – Americas, joined Mike Hodges, Belgard Sales Manager and emcee of the function, on stage to draw the winner’s name with the Besser logo providing a backdrop.
“This was a terrific evening for celebrating our industry and spending time with our loyal customers,” commented John who attended the gala event with his wife Kathy.
