(Framingham, MA) October 7, 2015 – Material Handling Product News is proud to announce its first-annual Readers’ Choice Products of the Year award contest. This award will honor the achievements of companies for advances in materials handling systems and equipment within manufacturing, distribution centers and warehouses. Winning products will be featured in our December issue and online at mhpn.com.

Our editors have chosen the 25 finalists from products seen throughout the year and voting is open to our readers to choose the top 10 materials handling products from the 25 finalists. Voting will go until October 14th.

“Each year we feature more than 750 products on the pages of Material Handling Product News. Each month, the editorial team struggles to determine which five will be our Editor’s Choice products,” said Executive Managing Editor Noël P.
