Rosen Award for outstanding sales representative performance in the areas of preparation, planning, execution and salesmanship.

The company markets the Brass Craft product line to the wholesale trades in southern California. Mega Western is a member of the Pacific Southwest Distributors Association.
The award is named after former Brass Craft chairman and 41-year company veteran Stanley Q.
