Nova Scotia’s The Orb Factory continues to rack up the awards.
This time, the Halifax-based company, known for its best-selling craft lines like PlushCraft and Sticky Mosaics, is being honoured with a Manufacturer Excellence Award from the American Specialty Toy Retailing Association (ASTRA).
ASTRA is an international not-for-profit trade organization of 1,800+ independent retailers, manufacturers and sales representatives in the specialty toy industry. It counts many Canadian companies amongst its members.
Although The Orb Factory received news of the award earlier this week, their company reps won’t actually pick up the prestigious award until early next month at a special ceremony taking place during ASTRA’s annual Marketplace trade show and conference (June 5-8) in Denver.
