Founded in Chicago, GOOD DESIGN bestows international recognition upon the world's most prominent designers and manufacturers for advancing new, visionary and innovative product concepts, inventions and originality, and for stretching the envelope beyond what is considered ordinary product and consumer design.
"We are proud of this achievement, especially since this was the first time we submitted products to GOOD DESIGN," says Stephan Niehaus, corporate chief designer based in Schaan, Liechtenstein. "We continually invest in research and development in order to provide our customers with the most innovative and enthusing products in the industry."
"Our customers in North America consistently ask for products that increase worker comfort, safety and productivity," stated David Schimmel, Sr. director, Electric Tools and Accessories based in Tulsa, Okla. "By working together with our team in Liechtenstein, we are able to provide the type of tools our customers need to work more efficiently."
