Arlington Heights, IL (September, 2007) - Electrical Contracting Products magazine, the product information authority for decision makers at the nation's leading electrical contracting firms, has named the Finalists in its 2007 INNOVATION Awards. The prestigious program recognizes outstanding companies whose products or services have best responded to electrical contractors' market challenges by offering creative and innovative ideas.
Finalists for this year's event include some of the most influential companies serving the $82 billion electrical contracting market. Divided into 18 product categories, the 2007 INNOVATION Awards are judged by a distinguished panel of professional electrical contractors who will evaluate each of the product finalists on six criteria:
- Ease of use
- Cost effectiveness
- Quality contribution
- Productivity improvements
The 2007 INNOVATION Award winners will be recognized at a special ceremony and reception being held at the Muscone Convention Center in San Francisco on Saturday, October 6, the first evening of the National Electrical Contractors Association's Show.
"We received a record number of entries this year, a 33 percent increase over 2006. Not only are these quality products, but the record number of entries and companies submitting products shows that manufacturers have a strong interest in the INNOVATION Awards," said John Dyslin, Editor of Electrical Contracting Products.
