FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ROHL Honored at Orange County Business Journal's Seventh Annual
Family Owned Business Award

Irvine, CA – Ken Rohl and the entire ROHL corporate family were honored with the Noteworthy Family Owned Business Award for Medium Business on November 16, 2006 at the Orange County Seventh Annual Family Owned Business Awards held at the Hyatt Regency in Irvine, CA.

The awards luncheon and ceremony, held from 12:00-2:00pm, was preceded by a VIP champagne reception in honor of all 62 nominees. As the nominees and award winners dined in the Grand Ballroom, various presenters, including Orange County Business Journal Publisher, Richard Reisman, and keynote speaker Tony Moiso, President/CEO of Rancho Mission Viejo, addressed the audience with introductory remarks.

After being awarded the Seventh Annual Family Owned Business Award for Medium Business in Orange County, Ken Rohl, President/CEO of ROHL, spoke on behalf of the entire Rohl family and the company. He attributed the success of the company and the winning of this prestigious local award to the hard work, family values and commitment of the entire ROHL ‘family’ staff. He said, “Being a family owned business at ROHL means more than just the Rohl family name; your last name doesn’t have to be Rohl to be a part of what we consider family. We consider our entire corporate staff, as well as companies that supply our product and our showrooms that display and sell our product, part of the ROHL family. We are very careful to only partner with those people, such as our suppliers, that have the same ‘family values’ that we hold in high regard at ROHL.”

Ken Rohl’s tradition of bringing quality kitchen and bath products to the luxury market has evolved rapidly over the past two decades. From the moment Ken introduced the first Pull-Out Kitchen Faucet to the U.S from Europe in 1983, ROHL was born and has grown into a legacy best known today for helping to create some of the world’s most elegant and luxurious kitchen and baths.

Today ROHL offers much more than the Pull-Out Kitchen Faucet. They bring the very latest in design and innovation to faucets and fixtures. Extending to bath, ROHL offers customers spa-inspired luxury shower systems. ROHL is also proud of their partnership with Shaws from England who make farmhouse fireclay sinks that are hand-made, celebrating family-owned heritage much like that of ROHL’s own.

It all begins with family values. ROHL presenters of high-end, luxury faucets, sinks and fixtures for America’s finest homes, resorts and hospitality projects, headquartered in Irvine, California, has helped thoughtful homeowners and designers create personal expressions of authentic luxury for over 20 years.

Anchored in traditional family values, trust, integrity and innovation, the Rohl leadership possesses a dynamic entrepreneurial spirit that extends through the organization. ROHL’s strength comes from a synergy of family and friendship in partnership with suppliers and customers. From traditional to modern, the ROHL line includes a wide range of top-quality faucets, fixtures, shower components and accessories. Sourced from Western Europe, New Zealand and North America, each is crafted to ROHL’s rigid specifications and is uniquely tailored for the American home, hotel or resort.
