(VIRGINIA BEACH, VA – July 2014) – Agio-USA was awarded Casual Living’s top honor of “Supplier of the Year” at the Casual Living Conference, held in Orlando earlier this year. The event brought together the top outdoor manufacturers and retailers in the industry.
In his acceptance, Bob Gaylord, President of Agio-USA thanked Casual Living for the award and reiterated the company’s commitment to moving forward with new ideas and continued growth in the segment. “Agio-USA is brimming with pride for this recognition. We will continue to move the market with fresh designs and innovations to better serve our suppliers, retailers, and customers.”
Furniture retailers have realized tremendous success and hit chart-topping sales goals after becoming Agio retailers, according to Gaylord. By adding outdoor to their product mix – the fastest growing segment in the furniture industry – indoor retailers are empowered with an entirely new money-making vertical. Outdoor retailers that partner with Agio are able to add looks that are hot on consumers’ lists, he added.
“Now is truly the time to embrace outdoor furniture,” Gaylord said. “We look forward to leading the charge to improve the ‘outdoor living room’ for all Americans.”
