YKK AP America Wins Product Innovation Award for its YCW 750 OGP Curtain Wall
DALLAS/FORT WORTH (Nov. 2014) – YKK AP America’s YCW 750 OGP curtain wall was honored with an Architectural Products 2014 Product Innovation Award (PIA) in the Windows/Doors/Openings category. Announced in the November issue of Architectural Products, the PIAs aim to showcase a wide-range of innovative building-related products that readers – including architects, specifiers, designers and building owners/operators – specify most.
The award is designed to identify and honor innovation in the development and refinement of building-related products. Products were assigned to a diverse body of judges including architects, interior designers, lighting designers and veteran A/E/C writers. The group of 50 independent industry professionals then reviewed each entry and selected the products they found most innovative and worth investigating.
“It is an honor to have the YCW 750 OGP named one of the most innovative products by such an esteemed panel of judges,” said Oliver Stepe, senior vice president, YKK AP America. “We strive to design and deliver products that meet the needs of our customers, which are represented by the panel and readers. To be recognized by this group of judges means that we are achieving that goal and supplying our customers with some of the most innovative solutions in today’s market.”
