Mannington Announces John B. Campbell Award Recipient for Salem, New Jersey, Site
SALEM, NJ, November 29, 2018—Two long-time Mannington employees, Luther Gore and Ryan Thom, have been named recipients of the company’s 2018 John B. Campbell award for its Salem site. This annual award recognizes associates who exemplify the qualities that John B. Campbell valued and which continue to be the guiding principles of the company today— “Care, Do The Right Thing, Work Hard/Play Hard and Control Your Own Destiny.” Winners are selected from nominations submitted by Mannington employees, making this one of the highest honors an associate can receive for their service because it is an award from their peers.
“Although Mannington is now a global company with operations throughout North America and the U.K., we remain a small company at heart that values the contribution every associate makes,” says Keith Campbell, Mannington Mills Chairman of the Board. “Each year, it is an honor to announce the winners of the John B. Campbell award, which is based on values my family has always held dear.”
