Fellow nominees in the adult novelty manufacturer category included Beamonstar, Cal Exotics, Doc Johnson, Jimmy Jane, Screaming O, Topco and Vibratex, all of whom were nominated and the winner chosen by the readers of Teeze and Adult Store Buyer magazines.
According to Pipedream Products’ COO Nick Orlandino, the industry-based voting process made Pipedream's win all the sweeter.
“I’m so excited to win this award because it was voted on by our peers, [and was] not predicated on how much advertising we do,” he said. "I’d like to thank Adult Store Buyer magazine and StorErotica for the great job they did in making this event a huge success. I’d also like to congratulate Larry Garland and the entire Eldorado crew for winning Distributor of the Year. I’ve known Larry a long time and he really has built a great company.”
Orlandino attributed the recognition of Pipedream to the hard work and dedication put into the company's products by its employees.
“Over the last couple of years, Pipedream has reinvented itself as an industry leader in package design, product development, customer service and as always, offering a great product at a fair price,” he said. “I’m so proud of my entire staff for making winning this award possible.”
