partner profiles HunterDouglasHospitality More than 60 years ago, Hunter Douglas pioneered a unique, continuous casting and integrated manufacturing process to produce painted aluminum strips that form the basic material for many of the company’s products. This early innovation enabled Hunter Douglas to create efficient and trusted production methods that helped them to become an industry leader. Today, the company offers a full range of fabrics, window shades, and custom fabricated draperies, bedding, and upholstery. Hunter Douglas Hospitality is part of the global Hunter Douglas Group, which has more than 169 companies in more than 100 countries. The company’s focus on hospitality and worldwide resources make Hunter Douglas Hospitality the choice of hotels, casinos, and resorts of all types. “Our legacy includes the creation of entirely new and award-winning categories of window coverings, such as the first honeycomb shade and the first and only window shading on the market,” explains Paul Hagar, marketing director at Hunter Douglas Hospitality. “Innovation is at the very core of our business. Our decentralized structure actively stimulates innovation throughout the company where we encourage constant experimentation with our products.” And the product offerings keep on growing. “We are continuously bringing innovative architectural products to the international marketplace. Our growing offering of sun control solutions, ceilings, façades, and motorized products help today's architects and designers to move their projects to the forefront of sustainable building.” ISG is a leading full-service provider of FF&E installation and logistics for the hospitality design industry. The company receives and installs all soft and casegoods as well as furniture, fixtures, artwork, and equipment for new construction and renovation, and repositioning projects. With more than 30 years of logistics experience, ISG is sensitive to their clients’ general construction and renovation timeline requirements. ISG utilizes a set of guidelines and principles that educate and involve all supply chain partners so everyone understands the importance of the property’s service level expectations and unique property brand standards. This process is then maintained by the company’s trained on-site installers. “Our web-based visibility and transparency offered by our professional services platform has allowed us to form longterm relationships within the industry,” says Chris Schafer, principal of ISG. “Over the past six years, our association with NEWH has lead to the development of key relationships critical to our success. Our interaction with the members and the organization has been professional while at the same time enjoyable. We commend them for their continuing commitment to education in the hospitality design industry. We value our relationship with NEWH as it continues to help ISG expand our services within the industry.” In part from ISG’s customer satisfaction and relations, the company launched its Hospitality Renovation division in 2010 to offer complete interior renovation services to existing clientele. “We look forward to continued success with all our NEWH partners and members. My belief is to better our clients’ projects and the industry one lives within. This is the essence of our partnership with NEWH.” Lexmark Carpet Mills, Inc. was founded in 1993 with the goal of providing high styled, quality carpet to the hospitality industry.
