LAS VEGAS - Carrier Corp. was honored by Managing Automation magazine as the winner of its second annual Progressive Manufacturing Awards in the Innovation Mastery category at the Progressive Manufacturing Summit in Las Vegas.

The Managing Automation Progressive Manufacturer of the Year Award recognizes a manufacturer who has mastered multiple technological and business disciplines needed to achieve and sustain a competitive advantage in the global marketplace. Selected by an independent panel of judges from a field of 33 finalists, Carrier was one of seven winners nominated for exemplifying the progressive use of technology to transform manufacturing business models.

Carrier was also honored by the American Business Awards as a finalist in its Best Overall Company category for the fourth annual "Stevie" Awards. Called "the business world's own Oscars" by the New York Post, the Stevie Awards are a national, all-encompassing business awards program honoring superior performances in the workplace.

Carrier was honored by both organizations for its Everest Project, carried out by Carrier Residential, North America. The Everest Project involved the complete redesign of its air conditioning split systems product line, consisting of stock keeping units (SKUs) under its nine major brands. The redesign and repackaging of Carrier's product line was successfully completed in a short span of 18 months.

"We are excited and grateful to be recognized by these prestigious award organizations. This project was appropriately named 'Everest' as it represents one of the largest investments and most comprehensive redesign projects in Carrier's history," said Rick Roetken, director of marketing for Carrier Residential & Light Commercial Systems.

"We are leading the industry by providing customers with the broadest line of products to meet new energy efficiency standards. Above all, these recognitions are a testament to Carrier's forward-thinking strategy, to support great design with the right resources and translate it into business success," said Roetken.
