KPS Global® has been named a finalist for the 2021 RAC Cooling Industry Awards in the Refrigeration Innovation of the Year category.
This year’s shortlisted entry features a new product KPS Global will launch in September 2021. The product is an innovation in the cold storage industry that will be applied as an eCommerce fulfillment solution for grocers, warehouses, pharmaceutical organizations and more. Its design and method of operations reduce labor and operating costs in the fulfillment process for those who are looking to save money and improve efficiency in fulfilling perishable orders.
The Refrigeration Innovation of the Year award recognizes cutting-edge systems, standalone products and components and processes in refrigeration, where the new technology provides a definitive change to existing techniques or equipment. Submissions are entered by distributors, manufacturers and designers alike. For this category, judges will weigh “pushing boundaries” and innovation more heavily than volume production.
“We are honored to be considered for such a prestigious award alongside so many other renowned companies,” said Mike Eakins, CEO of KPS Global. “As the leading manufacturer of insulated panels, KPS Global is dedicated to innovating and driving positive change in the cold storage industry.
