COE Distributing Honored with NAW’s Distributors Deliver Award
COE Distributing, one of the nation’s largest wholesale distributors of office furnishings, is a proud recipient of a new award from the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors recognizing charitable efforts and service to community.
COE accepted the NAW’s inaugural Distributors Deliver Award at NAW’s 2022 Executive Summit in Washington, D.C.
The award was presented to wholesaler-distributors who donated funds and supplies to support NAW-sponsored COVID-19 relief efforts in 2021, NAW CEO Eric Hoplin said.
Last year, NAW member companies banded together to provide more than $500,000 in personal protective equipment (PPE) to vaccinate more than two million people at stadium-based clinics in partnership with the National Football League. NAW also joined with the National League of Cities surpassing $1 million in donations of PPE and other supplies to help reopen communities.
“The team at COE Distributing enthusiastically supports NAW’s efforts to aid in the recovery of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said J.D. Ewing, COE Distributing’s chairman and CEO. “I am fortunate to be a board member of NAW’s Institute for Distribution Excellence, and I’m truly proud of our collective efforts to advance our industry and our society.”
COE was among 30 wholesaler distributors recognized in the 2021 Distributors Deliver Award program. The award program will continue annually to recognize companies in the wholesale distribution industry for their commitment to philanthropy and building thriving communities.
NAW is composed of direct member companies and a federation of international, national, regional, state and local associations and their member companies, which collectively total more than 30,000 employers, with locations in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. NAW-affiliated companies employ more than 5.9 million American workers and are a constituency at the core of our economy — the link in the marketing chain between manufacturers and retailers, and commercial, institutional and governmental end users.
