The Seegrid automated GT10 tow tractor product has been named a 2014 Award Finalist by the internationally renowned Edison Awards.

The distinguished awards, inspired by Thomas Edison’s persistence and inventiveness, recognize innovation, creativity and ingenuity in the global economy.

“It’s exciting to see companies like Seegrid continuing Thomas Edison’s legacy of challenging conventional thinking,” said Frank Bonafilia, Edison Awards’ executive director. “Edison Awards recognizes the game‐changing products and services, and the teams that brought them to consumers.” Award winners will be announced at the Edison Awards Annual Gala April 30th, held in the historic Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco, Calif.

Seegrid CEO Anthony Horbal noted, “Seegrid is honored to be an Edison Award finalist in the Applied Technology category and Industrial Productivity sub-category. We continually strive to develop game-changing products that revolutionize manufacturing and distribution facilities, and therefore, are very appreciative of being acknowledged for our innovative product, the GT10 robotic tow tractor.”

Edison Award nominees are judged by more than 3,000 senior business executives and academics from across the nation whose votes acknowledge the Finalists’ success in meeting the award’s stringent criteria of quality. The Edison Awards is a program conducted by Edison Universe, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to fostering future innovators. The 2014 Edison Awards are sponsored by Ipsos.
