American Leather, the Dallas-based leather furniture manufacturer, was recently listed as a part of the Dallas 100 Award, designating the company as one of the fastest growing corporations in the Dallas area. This is the company's twelfth consecutive year to be recognized by the prestigious honor, which makes American Leather the longest standing recipient of the award.
"The American Leather team is honored to receive this award for the twelfth year in a row," said Bob Duncan, CEO and founder of American Leather. "Since beginning operations in 1990, we have worked hard to consistently expand our customer and market base while increasing our sales volumes," he said. "We have strived very hard every year to contribute to Dallas' reputable, premier economy."
The Dallas 100 Award is given each year to Dallas-based, independent, privately held companies exhibiting the greatest increase in earnings and generated more than $7.9 billion in revenue over the past three years. The Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship at Southern Methodist University's Cox School of Business has been compiling and ranking businesses in the metroplex for over 15 years, along with the auditing help of KBA Group LLP.
As one of the industry's most technology-advanced and design-oriented furniture manufactures, American Leather has received a number of awards. The company was selected as a "Pacesetters" company in 1999 by the Dallas 100, an honor recognizing the top 25 fastest growing companies in the metroplex. Other awards include the Pinnacle Awards, Good Design Awards, American Furniture Award, ADEX Award and UDM Magazine's "Under the Covers" Award. The company has also been listed in Inc. Magazine's "Inc. 500," for the fasting growing corporations in the United States.
