We are excited to share that five of our electrical products have won prestigious Product of the Year category awards from Electrical Construction & Maintenance (EC&M) magazine. Hubbell is one of the largest electrical manufacturers in North America, with tradition built over more than a century of growth, innovation and delivery of high-quality, dependable products.
Each year, the Product of the Year awards recognize innovative products that help professional electrical installers, facility owners and occupants work safely and effectively. Hundreds of entries were evaluated by EC&M’s panel of independent judges. The judges are electrical professionals from the engineering, contracting and facility maintenance industries. After deliberations, the judges narrowed down the entries to a number of category winners announced in its special competition issue.
Peter Lau, president of Hubbell Electrical Solutions, commented, “We are honored to be recognized by EC&M’s Product of the Year awards for 2021. Winning first place in five categories demonstrates Hubbell’s commitment to product innovation and leadership in the commercial building industry.”
With the category winners selected, EC&M magazine determines an overall Product of the Year winner by vote of the magazine’s subscribers. Voting for this year’s award winner will be available on the magazine’s website between May 24 June 28.
