The award presentations took place at NEPPA’s Opening Reception and Awards Dinner at Scorpion Bar, Patriot Place, Foxboro, on April 9, the evening before the NEPPA Season Opener Expo.

This is the eighth year the association has bestowed Supplier of the Year awards and the fifth year they’ve had the New England Supplier of the year.  Hub Pen Company has been recognized six times for its excellent achievement as a supplier in the region.

Joe Fleming, Hub Pen Company President, commented, “Being recognized as the NEPPA Supplier of the Year in the non-apparel category as well as the New England Supplier of the Year is quite an overwhelming honor, especially considering the high caliber of the other supplier companies we were up against. We feel very privileged to serve our distributor customers and are humbled that they have selected us as being the best both in our category and overall as a supplier this year.”

A total of five NEPPA supplier members were nominated for the non-apparel Supplier of the Year awards, and NEPPA distributor members cast their votes in the apparel and non-apparel categories. Hub Pen Company received the majority vote in the non-apparel category.
