Townsend Leather has once again been recognized as one of the best places to work in the entire Capital District Region, and in fact has been recognized as THE Top Place to Work of all mid-size companies!  

For years now Townsend Leather has continually been awarded recognition as a Top Work Place from the Albany Times Union and a Best Place To Work from the Albany Business Review.  

Our team was surprised and elated, to not only win once again, but to take the top position!  The award ceremony was filled with laughs, photos, and good times, but it was especially exciting at the moment that Townsend Leather was called out as the #1 Mid-Size Company Top Work Place winner.   

You can see the moment of excitement, at the award ceremony, from our Facebook Live video:

The Albany Times Union, wrote an article highlighting some of the awesome aspects of Townsend Leather:

Townsend Leather was also recognized with a special honor, an award for “DIRECTION”.  Which symbolizes the foresight, leadership, and positive direction that Townsend is headed in.  Our Partners feel safe and comfortable and are excited about our future.  

We believe in our company, in our people, and in our culture.  We believe in making it better every day.  Awards like these are not necessary, they aren’t something we specifically strive for, but to be recognized for the things that we hold near and dear to our hearts, feels good.  

Shortly after the award ceremony, we had a burst of good weather.  We seized the opportunity to get everyone outside and celebrate a lot of awesomeness.  We celebrated a couple of stellar Partner stories (a couple of our “Standing Ovation” awards) and even handed out huge checks to winners.  We celebrated a month of incredible feats and performance by everyone to get through one of Townsend’s busiest times in our history, and do awesomely through it.  We celebrated once again, earning our AS9100 Recertification and passing our intense audit, with flying colors.  And of course, we celebrated our #1 Top Work Place honor with confetti cannons, high fives, and fruit all around!

We are so proud of the work we do, the people we are, and the greatness we create together.  These things really matter.  We are able to produce even better leather at even faster speeds because we love doing it.  We love where we work, we love who we work with, we love how we work, we love what we do – and because of that love we are able to create the finest upholstery leather in the world and proudly stand behind it.
