Concepts West Corp. of Parkersburg, W.Va., acknowledged support from Conair Group Inc. (Booth S2649) and presented an award for outstanding customer support to Vince Paskie, Conair account manager.
Joe Martin, Concepts West owner, presented a plaque to Paskie in a June 20 ceremony at Conair's NPE booth. Another plaque went to Christopher Keller, president and chief operating officer of Pittsburgh-based Conair, recognizing Conair as Concepts West's vendor of the decade.
Routinely over a decade and in addition to other duties, Paskie has provided service for Concepts West beyond the call of duty and gone out of his way even in the midst of uncomfortable situations, Martin said.
Conair has consistently been the firm's best supplier, Martin said. Concepts West has standardized on Conair equipment.
At Concepts West's beginning, Conair went way beyond what a normal business would do for a startup company with five employees and 5,000 square feet, Martin said.
Founded in 1995, Concepts West provides pre- and post-production services to Fortune 500 chemical and engineering resin companies and now employs 60 and occupies 300,000 square feet.
