The American Business Awards are the nation's premier business awards programme. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning 'crowned', the awards will be presented to winners at a gala ceremony at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Tuesday, 20 June.
More than 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Live Event of the Year, and App of the Year, among others. Magline was nominated in the Industrial Products & Services sub-category in the New Product & Service category for the LiftPlus.
The Magliner LiftPlus is a combination stacker, transporter, and positioner that can lift up to 350 pounds. It reduces common injuries due to lifting, balancing, positioning and transporting loads. The versatility of the LiftPlus makes it highly marketable across a vast portfolio of industry types, including: manufacturing, server/IT management, printing companies, packaging companies, auto repair shops, tool and die shops and beverage manufacturers.
More than 190 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year's Stevie Award winners.
"Each year the judges find the quality and variety of the nominations to be greater than the year before. The 2017 competition was intense and every organization that has won should be proud," said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.
