And while not everyone can be a winner, the awards committee did share a list of Honourable Mentions, which included Acuity Brands, Mercor Lighting, E.B. Horsman & Son, Stanpro Lighting Systems and GE Lighting.

Launched in 2014, the awards program recognizes EFC member organizations “demonstrating marketing excellence and innovation within the Canadian electrical manufacturing and distribution industry”.

Electro-Federation Canada (EFC) says it will launch the 3rd annual marketing awards program in February 2016. Stay tuned to EBMag.com and Electrical Business Magazine.
