This year’s awards are particularly special since the conference and awards were held in Greenville for the first time, so it’s great to bring recognition not only to your company, but also our region of the country.”
Top Jobs is NOMMA’s annual competition NOMMA where member organizations can enter designs and products in 17 categories. Each category has a gold, silver and bronze winner, which was announced on the last night of the 2016 METALfab Conference. Top Job entries are displayed throughout the conference, and every member organization receives one vote per category.
The Heirloom Companies won its first gold award in the Exterior Railings & Fences (Forged) category for an eclectic entryway railing. Using aluminum, artisans forged the creation to resemble fluid shapes with fantasy-like movement. The project was completed with an acid-based patina to lend it an earth-tone color.
Its second gold award entry was in the Furniture & Accessories (Forged) category. A previous client approached The Heirloom Companies to design a dining table, with seating for up to 20 people. All elements of the custom table were hand forged, and features include a center pedestal focal point and brass accent pieces.
In the Gates & Door (Non-forged) category, The Heirloom Companies was awarded the bronze for a custom door made out of aluminum and stainless steel hewn into decorative cut-out shapes. The door was finished in a water-based metallic paint.
Finally, The Heirloom Companies earned another bronze award in the Furniture & Accessories (Non-forged) category for its embellishment work on an existing stone bench. The company created a curved iron backrest with a powder coat finishing to enhance and complete the outdoor seating arrangement.
