NORTH ANDOVER, MA – 9/24/12 – L-com, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, announced today that it is the recipient of six new Stevie awards from the 2012 International Business AwardsSM (IBA), including a gold award for Best New Product or Service of the Year – Telecommunications Hardware. Though L-com has won gold Stevie awards before (most recently in February, 2012) for the American Business Awards (ABA) Sales and Customer Service competition, this is L-com’s first time winning an award from the international Stevie competition.
Like the ABA, the IBA awards Stevie trophies to companies and individuals that are judged to be the best in each category. Each judge scores all of the entries in a category to determine the finalists. Then, they give each finalist entry a score from 1 to 10, and the highest final average score in each category wins a gold. For entrants that do not win a gold, they may still win a silver as long as their final average is at least 8.0 out of 10. All other finalists receive bronze statues.
In addition to the gold award for Best New Product or Service of the Year – Telecommunications Hardware, L-com has also won two silver awards in the categories: Company of the Year – Computer Hardware, and Best New Product or Service of the Year – Industrial Products & Services. The remaining three bronze awards are for Website – Electronics, Most Innovative Company of the Year in Canada and the U.S.A., and Customer Service Department of the Year. All of these trophies were won in competition with companies from around the world.
“In the past few years we’ve won a number of Stevies based on our North American operations, and those awards reflect our leadership in our domestic market,” said Chris Long, Senior VP of Marketing and E-commerce. “But we recently began to sell our products aggressively in international markets, and these new awards show that high quality brand connectivity products and exceptional customer service are highly valued in international markets as well.”
The 2012 IBA Stevies will be distributed to winners during an awards ceremony on October 15th, held at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Seoul, South Korea. This award will be listed on L-com’s award page with the other honors it has received.
