Electrical Contracting Products Magazine Names UK International as Finalist for 2006 INNOVATION Award

Arlington Heights, IL Electrical Contracting Products magazine, the product information authority for decision makers at the nation’s leading electrical contracting firms, has named UK International as a finalist in its 2006 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 16 product categories, the 2006 INNOVATION Awards are judged by a distinguished panel of professional electrical contractors who will evaluate each of the product finalists on six criteria:
  • Innovation
  • Ease of use
  • Cost effectiveness
  • Quality contribution
  • Maintainability
  • Productivity improvements
“We are proud to be recognized as a finalist for the Innovation Awards,” said Walter Kaihatu, president of UK International.   “We appreciate the recognition of our excellent products, hard work and success with our high-performance portable lighting products for the electrical contracting market.  The continuous positive response we've received within the industry validates the efforts our company has put forth throughout the past 30 years."
The 2006 INNOVATION Award winners will be recognized at a special ceremony and reception being held at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston on Sunday, October 8th, the first evening of the National Electrical Contractors Association’s Show.
“Based on the quality of the entries, this year’s competition promises to be even tougher than last year’s inaugural awards program,” said Brian Taylor, Editor of Electrical Contracting Products. “Every one of the Finalists should be commended for their efforts to improve the value and effectiveness of products created for our nation’s electrical contractors.”
