SUWANEE, Ga. Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US (METUS) has been awarded a National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) 2019 Global Innovation Award for its SLZ-KF Four-way Ceiling Cassette model in the internal/external products category.

For the past five years, the NAHB Global Innovation Awards have recognized the most cutting-edge, advanced, or original product offerings and marketing strategies. NAHB established the awards to showcase these products to the entire global home building community and encourage innovation. This year, NAHB gave awards in three categories: internal/external products, technology/education, and leadership.

“The products recognized by this year’s Global Innovation Awards offer home builders new options for building more sustainable, more efficient, and more comfortable homes, as well as unique ways to plan and sell them to buyers,” said S. Robert August, chairman of the NAHB Global Opportunities Board. “We’re excited to welcome these winners to our family of innovators who’ve been honored with this award.”

Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US accepted its award in Las Vegas, Nevada, during the NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS) Global Industry Day in January. Judges chose the winners based on the following criteria: innovation, functionality, good design, builder/consumer friendly, sustainability, and unique marketing approach.

“We’re incredibly proud to receive this honor from the National Association of Home Builders,” said Michelle Robb, senior director of marketing for Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US. “As the name of the award suggests, we work diligently to develop products that aren’t only functional, but also innovative and forward-thinking. We’re pleased to have our SLZ unit recognized for just that.”
