Small Business of the Year Award goes to…

...Kreinik!  We are so excited: Kreinik Manufacturing Company won the Small Business of The Year Award presented by the Mid-Ohio Valley Chamber of Commerce at a ceremony last week. 

Doug Kreinik accepted the award, an honor that makes us proud especially since we just lost the company's co-founder, Estelle Kreinik, who passed away October 30. The company is in good hands with Jerry and Estelle's son Doug. 

We appreciate the award recognition, as bringing business and growth to the mid-Ohio Valley region has always been a goal. We are proud to be based in Parkersburg, West Virginia, with our threads made in the USA.

Kreinik Manufacturing Company began in 1972 when Jerry and Estelle Kreinik started selling portable cases made by Estelle to hold threads, needles, and stitchery projects. They went on to carry silk and metal threads, then started actually making metallic threads to be used in hand and machine embroidery. One thing led to another, and production moved into a former church building on the south side of Parkersburg. Over the years, son Doug Kreinik has added more colors of Kreinik Blending Filament, Braids, Ribbons, Silk Mori, Silk Serica, Silk Bella, Metallic Machine Sewing Threads, plus needlework tools and embellishments.
