Suttle's SOHO Access Enclosure Named as Finalist

For the 2005 Electrical Contracting Products INNOVATION Award

Eden Prairie, MN (August 18, 2005) - Suttle's newly launched SOHO Access structured wiring enclosure was recently named a finalist for the 2005 INNOVATION Award that is given out by Electrical Contracting Products magazine. The 2005 INNOVATION Award recognizes outstanding products or services that have best responded to electrical contractors' market challenges by offering creative and innovative ideas.


The SOHO Access enclosure will be judged by a panel of electrical contractors who will evaluate the enclosure on six criteria: Innovation, Ease of Use, Cost Effectiveness, Quality Contribution, Maintainability, and Productivity Improvements. The competition itself looks to be hotly contested based on the final 120 products entered into the contest.

"It is extremely exciting to see Suttle's SOHO Access enclosure to be named as a finalist for the 2005 INNOVATION Award", said Jay Kilby, Product Manager SOHO Access Products. "It is a true testament to the thought and engineering that have gone into this product line, to fulfill those contractors' needs in the field."

The 2005 INNOVATION Award winners will be presented their trophies at a special ceremony and reception being held at the New Orleans Convention Center on Sunday, September 18th on the first evening of the National Electrical Contractors Association's Show.
