2019 MHI Innovation Awards: Technological Marvels Honored

For the seventh year, an expert panel of industry insiders has evaluated and selected the most innovative products and solutions created in our industry. Prior to April’s installment of ProMat 2019, exhibitors were invited to submit entries for consideration in the MHI Innovation awards across three different categories: Best New Innovation, Best Innovation of an Existing Product and Best IT Innovation.

MHI received 108 total submissions spread among the three groupings. To narrow down each category to four finalists prior to the show, the submissions were evaluated by a committee of six volunteer judges.

This year’s evaluators included representatives from Covenant Transport, Canada’s Department of National Defense, Framebridge, IKEA, PharmaLink, and Steelcase Inc. On Monday at ProMat, finalists’ exhibits were visited in person by the judges who selected the winners based on their ability to deliver quantifiable and sustainable return on investment (ROI), cost savings and customer satisfaction.

Awards were presented to the winning products and technologies on Wednesday during MHI Industry Night with Craig Ferguson.

This issue of MHI Solutions focuses on sustainability and its progression in the supply chain. Consumers are becoming more interested in making environmentally friendly decisions when it comes to their buying habits and the brands to which they are loyal. Studies have found anywhere from 80-85% of consumers are more likely to buy from a company with a reputation for sustainability than from a neutral company, if their prices are equal.

Leading firms are tapping into this mindset by building more sustainability, and transparency, into their supply chains. They know that more sustainable operations will drive long-term brand loyalty and competitive advantage while having bottom line impacts on efficiency and profitability.

This issue of MHI Solutions will help provide you with the information and resources you need to address sustainability across your supply chain to improve your overall business performance.
