Nine companies offering a variety of exciting, new and innovative products have been selected as winners of the prestigious AHR Expo Innovation Award. The winners will be honored at a special ceremony during the industry’s leading exposition in Orlando, on Jan. 26.

In addition, one of these nine category winners will be selected as the overall winner of the 2010 AHR Expo Product of the Year Award at the Show.

Winners of the AHR Expo Innovation awards will be recognized at the awards ceremony on Tuesday, January 26th at 1 p.m. in the New Product Technology Theater A on the Show Floor. Winners will also receive placards to display at their booths during the Show as well as an etched crystal award to be displayed at their company’s headquarters.

Finalists for the overall award appreciated receiving the initial recognition.

“We are honored that the AHR Expo is recognizing Delphi’s innovative Micro Channel evaporator at this premier HVAC/R show,” said Charlie Clevenger, product line director, Delphi Residential and Commercial Heat Exchangers. “After pioneering the use of Micro Channel Condensers in the stationary HVAC market four years ago, Delphi is excited to introduce this product for both indoor residential and commercial settings at the 2010 Orlando Show.”

“We are extremely pleased with the wide range and high quality of product submissions we received for the eighth year of the award program,” said Clay Stevens, President of International Exposition Company, producers and managers of the AHR Expo. “It is a pleasure to recognize and honor manufacturers that have excelled in turning technology into useful and efficient products.”

A panel of judges, made up of ASHRAE members selected for their exceptional knowledge of the industry and its products, reviewed and evaluated all submissions. Product entries were judged for innovation, application, value to user, and market impact.

In addition to recognizing outstanding product innovation, entry fees from the 2010 award competition will be used to benefit a charitable organization in the Orlando area. During the seven years of the program, thousands of dollars have been “given back” to the communities where the Show has been held.

The Innovation Awards are jointly sponsored by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE); the Air-Conditioning Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI); and International Exposition Company (IEC), producers and organizers of the AHR Expo.
