NAILD announces Keystone Technologies LED kits as winner of 'Best Overall Product' in Product Sprint Awards

Keystone Technologies won “Best Overall” product honors as part of the 2016 Product Sprint Awards, the National Association of Independent Lighting Distributors (NAILD) announced this week.

The Product Sprint awards honor lighting manufacturers with the best products in five categories. Exhibitors showcased their newest products during NAILD’s annual conference at La Cantera Resort in San Antonio, Texas on April 12. NAILD’s distributor members voted to determine the winners of the prestigious awards, which are the pinnacle of design innovation and technical achievement.

Keystone Technologies’ Future Fit LED kits earned the title of “Best Ballast/Driver” and voters also named it the “Best Overall” product at the conference.

“We had many quality entries in this year’s Product Sprint, demonstrating the widespread innovation we see every day in the LED marketplace,” NAILD President Rebecca Phillips said. “The best part of these awards is the product winners are selected by distributors who know exactly how well these products perform once they reach the end user.”
