Berk International Recognized by The United Group with a Pinnacle Award for Superior Leadership in the Jan/San Marketplace
Berk International, leading supplier and manufacturer of towel, tissue, and non-woven disposable wiping cloths based in Boyertown, PA, has been honored by The United Group (TUG) as a Pinnacle Award winner in the Jan/San market segment for 2020.
The United Group recognizes its outstanding members and suppliers annually with three levels of award — Silver, Gold, and Pinnacle. Berk International won Pinnacle honors based in part on growth of rebates year-over-year.
In order to qualify for recognition by The United Group, an award recipient must be a supplier for two full calendar years, and show an increase in rebates over the prior year.
Berk International increased rebates over 2019 numbers by almost 56%, and are supplying top-quality tissue, cloth, and non-woven wiping solutions to 92 TUG members. Numbers like these put Berk at the top of the heap in the Jan/San market segment.
Since 2000, Berk International has positioned itself as a leading manufacturer of standard, custom, and specialty wipes. Berk boasts a broad product line that serves the jan/san, industrial, healthcare, food service, automotive, electronics, and aerospace markets. With a key focus on customer service, Berk prides itself on offering fully customizable production capabilities to meet the wiping needs of any customer.
Beyond the prestigious TUG Pinnacle Award, Berk International has received many accolades over the years from various professional organizations, including the 2012 Smart CEO100 Best Run Company recognition; 2019 Philadelphia Inquirer Family Owned Business Award; and the 2020 WOW Innovation Award.
