The City of Kaufman selected Numo Manufacturing to be awarded the Business of the Month Award.
Board members select businesses that show pride in the community through the efforts of business owners to be good community neighbors.
The City Council presented the Business of the Month Award at the council meeting on May 28.
Every Business of the Month Award winner receives an engraved glass award presented by the City of Kaufman and a board made up of a city, economic development corporation and chamber designee.
The representative Jim Martin received the award on behalf of Numo Manufacturing.
Numo Manufacturing was founded in Dallas in 1962. The name "Numo" refers to Numismatics, the scientific study of currency. For many years, Numo's primary product line consisted of wooden nickels, hence the Numo name.
Over time, the company ceased to manufacture wooden coins and expanded into new lines including beverage insulators, bank bags, ceramic and glass beverage ware, travel mugs, floor mats and cooler bags.
In 2007, Kolder Incorporated, a manufacturer of beverage insulators for both the promotional and retail markets, purchased Numo. To eliminate overlap and present a comprehensive line to promotional distributors, Kolder's promotional line of neoprene beverage insulators and other assorted products are now sold under the Numo name.
Kolder Incorporated is a privately held company based in South Texas. Founded in 1982, the company manufactures products for the promotional and retail markets in three North American facilities and employs approximately 450 people.
