After only one month into 2016, we are already making huge progress on a number of new parts. We expect to launch several of these new products in the first quarter, including our recent Design Competition winning entries. If this first month is setting the tone for 2016 as a whole, we are going to be in for a busy production year!
Speaking of new products, we will also be releasing several new designs as an extension of an existing product line. A part that you may be familiar with already in fact. Simple, classic tab pull design, DP3, now re-imagined with a twist. Sometimes we get caught up searching the globe for new design inspiration and we forget to stop and look around here at home. We thought maybe after 30 years of production on the original best-selling DP3, it might be time to mix it up. So we set up an in-house design contest where we got over 30 entries. In the end, three were selected, each issued a prize from 1st to 3rd place, and just like that, three new drawer pulls are born.
Congratulations to the winning participants: 1st Place - Jamaul Teague, 2nd Place - Francis Manalac, 3rd Place - Diego Wuethrich.
At this rate, we expect 2016 to be full of surprises. Onward innovation!
