Woodcraft received one of three American Manufacturing Awards – Best Packaging – at the 73rd National Hardware Show held May 8-10 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Presented by Made in USA Brand and GBQ Partners, the awards reflect American manufacturing excellence in design, quality and innovation in three categories: best packaging, best on-site patriotic marketing, and best new product. John Lederer, National Hardware Show representative and Marcie Gabor, president of Made in USA Brand, presented the awards on May 9.

Woodcraft was one of over 90 companies exhibiting in the Made in USA Product Display within the National Hardware Show. The national woodworking retailer earned the Best Packaging Award for Black Dog Salvage Furniture Paint packaging. The paint was on display at the Woodcraft booth.

Made in small batches in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the paint line was developed by Woodcraft and Black Dog Salvage, a Roanoke, Virginia-based architectural salvage company. The goal was to a create a furniture paint that performed better than other paints currently available, one that would be safe and easy to use when transforming reclaimed materials into custom furniture and accents in the Black Dog Salvage shop. The unique formulation will adhere to almost any surface with minimal preparation. Sixteen premixed colors include a true black and white to afford the ability to mix custom tints and shades.

“Woodcraft is honored to receive the Best Packaging Award, a surprise that made exhibiting at this prestigious show even more rewarding,” Jack Bigger, Woodcraft vice president of sales and marketing, said. “The award was a special treat, an American made work of art.”
