Marketing program wins a Crystal Achievement Award from Window & Door

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Sept. 6, 2007) - Milgard Windows & Doors has been recognized by a leading trade publication for its "Get Smart" campaign to launch the Tuscany™ Series vinyl replacement windows and SmartTouch™ lock.

Window & Door, a publication serving the window and door industry, honored Milgard with a 2007 Crystal Achievement Award for the Most Innovative Marketing Program in the Large Manufacturer category. According to the magazine, the Crystal Achievement Awards "recognize significant achievements in window and door technology, manufacturing and marketing."

"The Tuscany Series and SmartTouch lock demonstrate our innovative approach to product development, so an equally innovative marketing program was needed to introduce them," said Maureen Faccia, Director of Marketing at Milgard. "It is an honor to be recognized by an important industry publication like Window & Door."

The "Get Smart" campaign was designed to generate excitement about the Tuscany and SmartTouch launch. It included a metal briefcase labeled, "CLASSIFIED: INNOVATIVE PRODUCT INSIDE." Inside was product literature, a tape measure with a "secret" message and other materials to convey the innovative features of the product. The package was shipped or hand-delivered to Milgard dealers and prospective trade customers.
