Antron® Performance Awards Judge James O’Neill was impressed with the product selection story, stating, “It was very rewarding to hear the client was educated on the true lifetime costs of the carpet and not just the initial sale. Through this knowledge, the carpet specified will more than double the previous carpet’s life expectancy, reduce maintenance costs, and ultimately provide long term savings for the client.”

An elite panel of industry professionals lent their talent and expertise to this year’s panel and the selection of the winners:

  • James W O’Neill, AIA – Founding Principal Inventure Design
  • Lucy Nye, Manager Interiors – MD Anderson Cancer Center
  • Steve Spencer, Retired from State Farm – Now a Facilities Consultant

About the Antron® Brand

When durability meets design-ability, the possibilities are endless. Architects, interior designers and facility managers specify Antron® carpet fiber because of the superior type 6,6 nylon. It allows carpet to stand up to wear and tear – looking newer, longer. The fiber structure helps resist staining and the innovative shape releases soil more easily. It is the foundation ingredient in over 800 original carpet styles from 17 trusted commercial carpet mills. Antron® carpet fiber allows for creative flexibility without sacrificing performance. All Antron® fibers are third-party certified by SCS Global Services as Environmentally Preferable Products. For more information, visit or call 1-877-5ANTRON.
