SIMPSON Wins Honorable Mention Award in

 NRHA Packaging and Merchandising Competition


Indianapolis SIMPSON recently received the Honorable Mention distinction in the 2017 Packaging and Merchandising Awards (PMA) program, presented by North American Retail Hardware Association (NRHA).


SIMPSON and nearly fifty other U.S. and Canadian manufacturers recently submitted select packaging and merchandising/point-of-purchase display product materials to a distinguished awards committee in order to compete for recognition as the best in the industry.


To determine all winners, NRHA selected three expert judges representing the retail, media and graphics communities to contribute their professional talent and experience to review and critique each entry. The judges’ scores were categorically tallied resulting in winning packaging and merchandising displays selected among five award levels: Judges’ Choice, Whole Package for Packaging and Merchandising, Gold, Silver and Honorable Mention.


“Each year we look forward to receiving, reviewing and recognizing the most innovative in packaging and merchandising displays,” commented Marci Taschler, Member Growth & Development Manager and PMA Program Director at NRHA. “Packaging and merchandising play a key role in the overall success of manufacturers’ products from a corporate branding perspective to how they are positioned and purchased at the retail level. I am very proud of the companies who participated and honored to lead this initiative.”


NRHA hosts the PMA competition annually to inform the industry about emerging packaging trends, and to celebrate the overall independent home improvement channel’s best in merchandising and packaging.


The Packaging and Merchandising Awards presentation will take place at 2 p.m. May 9 in the NRHA Village at the National Hardware Show® in Las Vegas. All program entries will also be on display at the Packaging and Merchandising Award Expo in the NRHA Village for the duration of the three-day Show, and will appear in a special section in the May issue of Hardware Retailing magazine.
