CHATSWORTH, Calif. — Pipedream Products has been awarded the 2011 Best of Chatsworth Gifts and Novelties Award from the U.S. Commerce Association (USCA).

The USCA awards are given annually, recognizing companies excelling in their local community and industry.

“Each year, the USCA identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category,” said Kelly McCartney, of the Board of Review for the U.S. Commerce Association. “These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and community.”

The USCA gathers various sources of information and analyzes data to choose winners in each of its categories focusing on quality as opposed to quantity. Winners are then determined based on the information gathered internally by the USCA from third parties.

Pipedream CEO Nick Orlandino said he was pleasantly surprised when he was notified.

“We had no idea we were even in the running when we were told that we won,” he said. “It’s an honor to know that our hard work and dedication to improving Pipedream in the last few years is being recognized even outside of our industry.”
