Singled out for innovation prowess
The winners of the 2013 ISSA Innovation Award Programme were announced last week during ISSA/Interclean North America, 2013, held in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
This annual programme provides cleaning-industry distributors and end-customers-including building service contractors and in-house service professionals-the opportunity to choose which innovations in five categories deserve to take home the awards.
The 2013 contest attracted 43 entries in the categories Cleaning Agents, Dispensers, Equipment, Services and Technology, and Supplies. The five category winners, which were chosen throughout three months of online voting, are listed below.
In addition, this year's programme allowed distributor, wholesaler, and facilities service providers attending the show, to select five additional Visitors' Choice awards by voting in the ISSA Innovation Showcase onsite. The Visitors' Choice award winners also are listed below.
"Anyone interested in seeing the future of the industry need look no further than the ISSA Innovation Award Programme," says Anthony Trombetta, ISSA director of sales. "These forward-thinking products and services are proof that the cleaning industry is constantly evolving and providing the innovative tools necessary to help industry professionals change the way the world views cleaning."
