Modex Industry night celebrates MHI Innovation Award winners

Event also recognizes mentors and young professionals with MHI Young Professional Awards.

By ·

Virtual reality training, yard management software and forklift/pedestrian safety systems were the big winners at the MHI Innovation Awards during the Industry Night celebration at Modex on Wednesday.

The recipients of the 5th annual MHI Innovation Awards were among 111 total applicants narrowed to 12 finalists in three categories: Best New Innovation, Best Innovation of an Existing Product and Best IT Innovation.

Five judges comprised of professionals from the material handling and supply chain industry completed the initial vetting process. Judges included representatives from The Home Depot, Mohawk Industries, Champion Petfoods, Group Deschenes, and 3M. Four finalists were chosen as the most innovative products in each category based on concept, value, and impact.

The contest defines innovation as a new product, product line, technology or service – or a new application of existing products or technology – that creates quantifiable and sustainable results in terms of return on investment (ROI), cost savings and customer satisfaction. On Monday, the judging panel visited finalists’ exhibits in person before selecting winners in each category.
