Xylem Group hires national sales manager
Xylem Group, the Cumming, Ga.-based manufacturer of bathroom vanities, faucets, mirrors and sinks, has appointed J.T. Stewart to the position of national sales manager for the Xylem and Zoli brands. Stewart’s primary responsibilities will include driving Xylem Group’s expansion into the hospitality segment. In addition, he will be active in Xylem Group’s 3D private-label division at the wholesale level.
Stewart most recently held the position of national sales manager at Mountain Plumbing Products, where he gained recognition for securing accounts among notable hotel brands. Prior to his career in the kitchen and bath industry, Stewart practiced corporate and commercial litigation for a New Jersey law firm after graduating from Seton Hall University. His credentials also include trading equities on Wall Street after completing his undergraduate studies at the University of New Hampshire’s Whittemore School of Business & Economics.
Circular of the Week
This week, Westminster, Mass.-based Aubuchon Hardware is just wrapping up its More Bang sale, as in more bang for your buck. The New England chain of approximately 125 stores is featuring deals on everything from outdoor entertainment to yard maintenance and pet supplies. The circular, which ran from late June through today, maintained a red, white and blue and star spangled design.
• EZ Grill disposable charcoal grill for $4.00; • Your choice of 34-quart, 20-quart or 5-gallon water cooler by Rubbermaid for $24; and • $4 off all exterior Benjamin Moore paint and stain.
The Skinny: Home Team Rewards
Throughout the eight-page circular are green Home Team Rewards boxes, featuring items that will provide the company’s discount rewards program members with coupons toward future purchases. For example, customers who purchase resin Adirondack chairs, already on sale for $18.97, will receive a coupon on their receipt for $3.00. The add points out, it’s as if paying only $15.97. The only catch is the coupon cannot be applied until a later purchase.
Commission approves Lowe’s store in Carlsbad, Calif.

Carlsbad’s Planning Commission approved the proposal last week.
