Red Lion Receives Control Design 2012 Readers' Choice Award for 12th Consecutive Year

Voters Recognize Red Lion’s Industry-Leading Panel Meters with Prestigious Accolade

York, Pa. – September 18, 2012 – Red Lion Controls, global experts in communication, monitoring and control for industrial automation, today announced that the company’s industry-leading panel meters have received the 2012 Readers’ Choice Award from Control Design magazine. This achievement marks the 12th consecutive year that the prestigious accolade has been awarded to Red Lion.

“Winning this award for the 12th straight year is a testament to the work we are doing within the industrial automation space,” said Jesse Benefiel, vice president of product management at Red Lion Controls. “With a goal to design and bring high-quality products to market, having customers select both our panel meters and customer service makes this award that much more gratifying.”

To determine this year’s winners, Control Design sent questionnaires to approximately 15,000 magazine subscribers who work directly with industrial automation and control products. The questionnaire included an unaided ballot in which participants were asked to identify the vendors that came to mind in response to questions. Voters were also asked to rate both service and customer support. Only companies that received at least five percent of the category vote were recognized. The survey has been conducted annually since 2001 and Red Lion has dominated the panel meter category year after year.

“The journey to market acceptance requires immense work and excellent listening skills. Staying there requires innovation and endurance,” says Joe Feeley, Editor-in-Chief of Control Design. “Our Readers’ Choice Awards recognize market leadership among many worthy competitors who are working hard to deliver cutting-edge products and services in the industrial automation market.”
