CHICAGO, IL, Feb 13, 2012 (MARKET WIRE) — The Edison Awards, celebrating its 25th year, has announced its finalists for the internationally renowned 2012 Edison Best New Product Awards. Since 1987, The Edison Awards have recognized ideas at the forefront of new products, services, marketing, design and innovation. Winning an Edison Award has become one of the highest accolades a company can receive in the name of innovation and business.
“The Edison Awards provide an exclusive platform for honoring innovation, recognizing innovators, and encouraging ongoing innovation among today’s development teams, researchers, designers, “intrapreneurs’ and entrepreneurs,” says Thomas Stat, the 2012 Edison Awards Steering Committee Chairman. “We’re inspired by our 2012 finalists and delighted to have this opportunity to recognize and promote the outstanding accomplishments they represent.”
