DUX WINS 2008 CHALLENGERS DISTINGUISHED ACHIEVEMENT AWARD™
Advanced Laminar Airflow Technology recognized at International Woodworking Fair
SEATTLE, Wash. - August 25, 2008 - Having returned from an extremely successful week at the International Woodworking Fair in Atlanta, Ga., DUX Area, Inc. is today celebrating the receipt of one of the woodworking industry's most coveted prizes - the Challengers Distinguished Achievement Award™. Officially awarded on Wednesday, August 20th, the prize recognizes the DUX spray guns' Advanced Laminar Airflow Technology as one of the woodworking industry's most innovative and environmentally friendly new technologies.
This year, ninety-three companies entered a record one hundred and twenty-six entries for the award. Earlier in the year, DUX submitted a comprehensive application package, complete with product background and real-world customer success stories. After being selected as one of twenty finalists, the company was offered the opportunity to personally present their product/technology to a panel of judges the day before the IWF show opened. After deliberations, DUX was chosen one of seven award winners.
“Winning the Challengers Award is just incredibly exciting for us.” said Matt Carlson, Vice President of Marketing for DUX. “We understand that new technologies are often greeted with skepticism at first, so having such a seasoned group of industry veterans review and then recognize the value in our technology is a real feather in our cap.” Carlson added that the award announcement drove scores of first-time visitors to the DUX booth at IWF. “We’re looking forward to showing these companies how our spray equipment can dramatically reduce overspray, leading to coatings savings and lower VOC emissions.”
