Each year, The Home Depot recognizes the achievements of its valued partners at its annual Supplier Partnership Meeting.
At this year’s meeting, the company named Pergo Outlast+ as the winner of its 2016 Innovation Award. Pergo Outlast+ was selected because the new laminate flooring provides 24 hours of defense against liquid spills – something no other laminate offers today.
Runner-up honors were awarded to Milwaukee Tools for its Milwaukee M18 FUEL with ONE-KEY, which allows users to connect via smartphone for unlimited customization and control.
Heath Zenith lighting also received honors for its Defiant LED BLADE motion activated security lights. BLADE LED motion lights provide seamless light coverage for increased safety at home.
