Mullet’s Aluminum Receives Architizer A+Product Awards Special Mention

Mullet’s Aluminum Products Inc. received Architizer A+Product Awards Special Mention in the Landscape Design category for its work on the “Majestic Rising” project in Southwest Florida. The Architizer A+Product Awards are regarded as the world’s largest award program for architecture.

“This is an extreme honor to receive a Special Mention from one of the industry’s most respected organizations. The recognition is a testament to our team’s dedication, design style, and creativity,” stated Nate Yoder, Marketing Director.

Mullet’s Aluminum’s Special Mention was due to its prestigious work on the “Majestic Rising” project in Southwest Florida. This custom aluminum pergola was handcrafted in Mullet’s Aluminum’s manufacturing plant and delivered and installed by the team. 

The structure has quickly become an iconic landscaping feature for the residential high-rise, Seaglass, located in Bonita Springs, Florida.

“Majestic Rising” reflects the vision behind this extraordinary architectural aluminum trellis feature designed to provide visual interest and complement the aesthetics of the building structure it sits adjacent to. This feature evokes a vision of people holding hands and standing in a circle with arms raised towards the heavens. It is both primitive – reflecting ancient rituals of indigenous people as they gathered to welcome a mystical presence from above or give thanks for a bountiful harvest – and modern with welded aluminum trusses that reflect our current civilization and people gathering to worship or celebrate a special event.

The welded aluminum structure demonstrates the strength of the gathered people, and the upward trajectory points towards an endless sky. The circular design shows continuity and community, while the color reflects the purity of those gathered.

Manufactured by Mullet’s Aluminum Products, Inc. in Sarasota, this circular trellis was handcrafted using 4″ x 6″ and 4″ x 8″ rectangular aluminum extrusion and 4″ x 4″ square extrusion. The overall diameter of the trellis measures 19′ 2 3/4,” and it sets atop four 9′ tall reinforced concrete columns.

The Architizer winners were chosen by a 200+ member jury comprised of industry leaders from around the world. Architizer’s core mission is to empower architects by connecting designers with building-product manufacturers via inspiring content, awards programs, competitions, and global reach spotlighting the world’s best architecture. The A+Product Awards were created to honor the globe’s most inspiring contemporary buildings, designs, and architecture.

Founded in 1978, Mullet’s Aluminum has received numerous industry awards for its products, community service, and customer care. The manufacturing company specializes in all aluminum products for commercial, residential, and condominium projects throughout the State of Florida and beyond.

Sarasota’s manufacturers represent ‘best of the best’ in Florida | Sarasota Herald Tribune

Mullet’s Aluminum was mentioned in an article on Monday, October 3, 2022 in the Sarasota Herald Tribune.

Sarasota’s manufacturers represent ‘best of the best’ in Florida Manufacturing doesn’t seem top of mind when you first think of Sarasota County, but when you take a deep look into what makes our economy tick, it has become a key economic diversifier. In· fact, 485 manufacturers are employing 9,500 people in our community, and 1,250 new manufacturing jobs are projected to be added over the next five years.

As the Economic Development Corporation’s vice president of business development services, I have had the unique privilege of meeting with the people who are leading Sarasota County’s manufacturing giants, touring their facilities and witnessing the incredible work their teams are doing.

From the fiber optic cabling of Washington, D.C., government buildings to fragments that make the world’s largest oil drills function, some of our world’s most relied upon products are being produced right here in our community. It is important for us to not only recognize these companies and the work they do, but also their vital role in our community and its economy.

Harmar Mobility and Mullet’s Aluminum Products are two examples of local companies with worldwide implications.

Harmar Mobility manufactures a red light and noticed the metal lift on the back of the car in front of you? Look closely arid you’ll most likely notice a Harmar sticker on it. In fact, Harmar is the largest supplier of wheelchair and scooter lifts to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. That’s definitely something of which we can be proud.

Mullet’s Aluminum Products is recognized as one of the largest architectural aluminum manufacturers in the Southeast. Mullet’s executed amazing projects like the railings of the recently renovated St. Petersburg Pier, and one of their more interesting projects took place at the Kennedy Space Center. The “Last Room on Earth,” as it’s called, is the final steppingstone before astronauts board their capsule for space travel. Right here in Sarasota County, the Mullet’s team constructed what they described as one of the most technically challenging and complex items they’ve ever built. Their project is making Sarasota County forever noted in our country’s ongoing space exploration legacy.

Harmar and Mullet’s have both deservingly been recognized on a statewide level. The Sterling Council and FloridaMakes recently announced their 2022 Florida Sterling Manufacturing Business Excellence (SMBE) Award honorees, which is presented annually by the governor to high performing, role model organizations, both private and public, that demonstrate superior management approaches and role model results.

Included on a list of just11 state-wide winners were Harmar and Mullet’s. Their awards are so indicative to their impact on our state that Kevin Carr, CEO of FloridaMakes, took the liberty to note how “they truly represent the best of the best among manufacturers in Florida.”

The manufacturing industry is just one sector that is garnering Sarasota County national attention amid relocations. I hope our community can recognize the work of companies like Harmar and Mullet’s and many others, collectively supporting them while we work to diversify our economy. They are instrumental to the future of our business ecosystem.
