Facility Executive Announces 2015 Readers’ Choice Awards

The winning companies of this year’s Facility Executive Readers’ Choice Awards represent a wide range of the most dynamic manufacturers and service providers in the facility management marketplace — including those that offer access control, flooring, doors and locks, energy management, furniture, lighting, and more.

“For over two decades, this program has recognized and celebrated the best products, services, and solutions available to the facility management community,” said Susan Coene, Co-President of Group C Media Inc., parent company of Facility Executive. “To earn the recognition and respect of facility executives who spend much of their working lives purchasing products and services for their facilities is an impressive achievement, and we congratulate all our winners.”

Anne Cosgrove, Editor in Chief of Facility Executive, said, “The products offered by the winners of this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards represent leading solutions for facility professionals. With the votes based on aesthetics, reliability, value, and customer service, these annual awards provide a view into which companies our readers have found most beneficial to their work in the preceding year. I’d also like to thank our readers for casting their votes.”
