New York, NY (PRWEB) September 16, 2005
Globus Cork Inc. announced that it won the Most Valuable Product Award for 2005. The prestigious MVP Awards are granted by the leading publisher in the building industry, Hanley Wood, which publishes 22 magazines in the building and construction industry, for both the commercial and residential markets. Hundreds of manufacturers submit products each year for evaluation and the award selections are made by a 6 judge panel. ÂGlobus Cork is very excited to receive the MVP award for its colored cork tiles and very honored to be the only flooring company selected in 2005Â, said Jennifer Biscoe, Globus CorkÂs Marketing Director.
MVP awards are granted to products that not only add beauty and value to a home but are also easy to install. The selected products often provide a new solution to common industry problems. Colored Globus Cork tiles impressed the judges with their unique beauty and wide range of colors and tile sizes. The judges also liked that the cork tiles were an environmentally-friendly ÂgreenÂ product and that they were easy to install.
Cork is the environmentally sound choice for flooring. With great thermal and acoustical insulative properties, Cork is durable as well as soft and warm underfoot. The cork oak tree grown in the Mediterranean is never destroyed to produce cork products. The Cork bark is harvested from the tree every 9 years, leaving the forest undamaged as the tree re-grows more bark. Even better than a renewable resource, Cork is a Harvested Resource. All pigments, varnishes and adhesives that Globus Cork uses in producing its tiles are water-based, solvent-free and eco-friendly. Cork also qualifies as a rapidly-renewable resource under the US Green Building CouncilÂs LEED certification program.
Globus Cork Inc. is a US-based manufacturer of colored cork floor and wall tiles as well as colored cork floating floor systems. They offer more than 27 tile shapes and sizes as well as the cork panels in over 36 colors along with custom color and size capabilities.
