January 2019

Dear Friends:

Maybe I say it every New Year, but – where did the year go? Where did 2018 go? Seems like just yesterday was the start of 2018 …

Our 2018 was a pretty outstanding one. Just a few highlights –

We had a record crowd at our booth at NEOCON in June. It was impressive and quite humbling to see how many people stopped by to take in our new offerings. We’ll be back this year in the same space on the 7th floor. Please stop by.

I cannot even give a rough guess how many new concepts, new designs and new products we introduced in 2018, but it was a lot. And we’re on point to keep it up!

We’re experimenting in brand new technology and I mean BRAND NEW! More to come …

The young driver we sponsor, Colton Herta, won the biggest Indy Lights race of the year at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway a few days before the Indy 500. He finished 2nd in the Lights championship and moves up to Indy Cars. We wish him well and will be rooting him on!

Our 33rd annual Design Competition crowned two student winners who have come up with incredible yet practical designs. Trust me, you’re going to love them.

We were invited to display a Christmas tree at the annual Torrance Memorial Hospital charity fundraiser. And – our tree won “Best Tree Design” – plus sold for more than $ 2500 in their charity auction.

Within a month you will be getting our first 2019 catalog entitled “Lifestyle Collection”. I think you may be as excited as we are! Good stuff.

Ours is a small firm. We laugh together and we cry together. We cried in February when May Beck, a dedicated team member for 27 years, passed away at age 46. We all miss her very much.

Our very best wishes for your success in 2019.

Cordially,

Douglas A.J. Mockett
