CustomRetailer Magazine honors the ECO-Surge Suppressor for innovative, energy-saving green technology and solution-oriented design

Chicago, IL (September 14, 2010) - -Tripp Lite is proud to announce that its TLP1210SATG ECO -Surge™ Suppressor is a recipient of CustomRetailer magazine's EXC!TE Award.

"We're thrilled that the ECO -Surge Suppressor has received this mark of recognition from CustomRetailer," said Tripp Lite Senior Product Manager Karenann Brow. "With its innovative green design, this surge suppressor saves money, conserves electricity and helps to reduce the carbon footprint of custom installations. And as more and more end users demand environmentally friendly solutions, it provides custom installers with multiple margin -building attachment opportunities."
