In this special edition of EC&M On Air, Editor-in-Chief Ellen Parson sat down with the product managers representing the Platinum, Gold, and Silver winners of EC&M's 2023 Product of the Year competition to learn more about the products’ applications, development process, and end-user benefits.
The Platinum Award went to the MegaFlex UL, represented by John Goosseff, global product manager of ABB Inc.. The Gold Award winner is the NFPA LiNK software, represented by Kyle Spencer, director of subscription services for the National Fire Protection Association. The Silver Award went to the M12 cable stapler, represented by Sean Kelley, director of product management for Milwaukee Tool.
This year’s competition featured products introduced to the market between Jan. 1, 2022, and Dec. 31, 2022. A hand-picked panel of judges narrowed down the 110 entries to 34 category winners for the first phase of the competition. These category winners were then narrowed down to our three finalists through an online poll available to EC&M readers, who cast their votes to determine the three award-winning products.
For more information on all three of the 2023 POTY winners and the history of the EC&M Product of the Year competition, read the report by Freelancer Amy Fischbach.
