Retailers’ Choice Award – Two Years in a Row!
Because Franklin Sensors has created revolutionary stud finder technology, we have grown accustomed to garnering many forms of industry recognition. I’ll be honest though; some awards just mean more than others.
We regularly attend the National Hardware Show® held every May in Las Vegas. The NHS provides an opportunity for vendors to showcase their products and for hardware professionals and buyers to see what’s new and innovative in the industry.
Hardware Retailing magazine has been hosting the Retailers’ Choice Awards at the National Hardware Show for more than 50 years. Being selected as a winner is quite an honor for a couple of reasons.
First, the judges are not magazine editors, but rather store owners who have real-world experience identifying products that add value to their store and best serve their customers. They walk the show as a store owner and provide no indication that they are part of the Retailers’ Choice Committee.
Second, there are over 2,800 booths and thousands of products at the show. Only 36 products are selected for an award. So, when one of our stud finders was chosen as the Retailers’ Choice Award for the second year in a row, and third time ever, we were thrilled!
Our first win came back in 2013 at our first National Hardware Show. At the time we only have one product – the ProSensor 710. As we have expanded our lineup of the World’s Best Stud Finders, we continue to be the favorite for retailers and consumers alike.
