Jewel-Craft Wins 2022 RJO Vendor of the Year Award
It’s the fourth time the jewelry manufacture and repair company has received the honor.
The RJO award winners are chosen by the retail members and given to draw attention and award outstanding members for excellence in sales, service, and support.
This is the fourth time Jewel-Craft has won the award, previously being named a Vendor of the Year in 2009, 2019, and 2021, it said.
Earl Wesdorp founded Jewel-Craft in his small garage attic in 1947.
Today, the company is run by the third and fourth generations of the Wesdorp family.
In 2019, it completed an expansion that nearly doubled the size of its Kentucky facility.
The new 50,000-square-foot facility includes 10 new offices for managers and administration, a revamped security system, a fitness area, and patio.
“It’s such an honor to receive this award for the third time in four years,” said Nick Wesdorp, senior director of administration.
“I’m blown away that we’ve won it four times in total. Of course, we couldn’t have done it without the support of our customers, partners, and especially our amazing employees, a.k.a. the Pit Crew. They’re the absolute best in the business.”
