McNeilus FLEX Controls™ Honored With Industry Awards
Award-Winning FLEX Controls™ recognized as a “Top 100 New Products of 2017” and a “2018 Most Innovative Product (MIP)”
DODGE CENTER, Minn. (April 17, 2018) – McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, was recently honored with two industry awards for their FLEX Controls™ system equipped on McNeilus concrete mixers. FLEX Controls are now a “Top 100 New Products of 2017,” recognized by Construction Equipment magazine and a “2018 Most Innovative Product (MIP)” at World of Concrete by Hanley Wood.
“It’s great to see our team’s development work acknowledged by the industry. McNeilus FLEX Controls is one of the only mixer control systems with an in-house team of developers that can help us quickly adapt and advance our system for our customers current and future needs.” commented Bryan Datema, Senior Director, Business Development of McNeilus Mixer Business Unit.
The “Top 100 New Products of 2017,” recognized by Construction Equipment magazine were announced in early January. The award recognizes the system’s unique ability to “consolidate monitoring on one screen,” delivering better control and less variability in loading, mixing and delivering.
Established in 1991, Construction Equipment’s Top 100 New Products list is the longest running and most prestigious product recognition program in the construction equipment industry. Editors evaluate the products introduced over the previous year and choose those considered most innovative. The selection criteria include: An advancement in technology, a new product line, a significant improvement to existing products, or an increase in competition in its field.
FLEX Controls was also honored as Expert’s Choice in Concrete Production & Delivery Equipment for the “2018 Most Innovative Product (MIP)” at World of Concrete. The win was announced last month in a press release by Hanley Wood.
Hanley Wood is the premier company serving the information and marketing needs of the construction industry. The awards, presented annually in conjunction with the World of Concrete, showcase many products exhibited at the show. The MIP awards program allows industry insiders an opportunity to vote for the products they judge as innovative. Winners are also selected by a panel of industry experts, and by the editors of Concrete Construction, and The Concrete Producer.
Jesus Crespo, Vice President & General Manager, McNeilus Concrete Mixers commented “We are honored to have been chosen for these awards and recognized as the only rear discharge truck body manufacturer in these categories. Our innovative FLEX Controls is a project the team has been working to identify the relevant needs of our key customers, to provide the best added value system in the industry.”
