BrassCraft Manufacturing, a leading manufacturer of plumbing products, was awarded first place in the 2014 Innovation Awards by industry-respected media group, Home Improvement Executive.
Home Improvement Executive's annual Innovation Awards are selected based on interviews with retail buyers and store personnel, research, and product achievements. BrassCraft Manufacturing won a coveted Gold Innovation Award, with a specific nod to its Safety+PLUS® gas connectors.
"We are honored to have received another Innovation Award for our products," said Jeffrey Jollay, vice president, Marketing & Product Development, BrassCraft Manufacturing. "It is particularly meaningful for it to be specific to innovation, since that is a continual focus within our company."
Safety+PLUS® gas connectors combine excess flow technology with the advanced corrosion resistance of the ProCoat® polymer coating to provide a safer connector. The Safety+PLUS® excess flow valve, when triggered, immediately restricts gas flow to a non-hazardous level (bypass flow) to prevent dangerous release of gas into the home. Safety+PLUS® gas connectors are designed, machined and assembled in the USA at the company's manufacturing plant in Corona, CA.
