Cabot accepts consumer award

A national online survey service has bestowed upon Cabot Premium Wood Finish the tile of “Product of the Year,” in the home improvement category.

According to the survey organizers, some 40,000 American shoppers voted in the cross-category competition.

"It is such an honor to have a Cabot product selected as the 2014 Product of the Year, especially because consumers chose the award," said Victoria Stroud, Cabot brand manager. The product is a Lowe’s exclusive, available in seven ready-mix colors and 27 tintable colors in quarts and half-pint sizes.

Product of the Year accepts entries every year from consumer-packaged goods that demonstrate innovation and were launched within the previous year. Entered products are then placed into specific categories, such as food, beverages, personal care, household care, etc., with a product then being chosen as a winner in its category through a nationally representative online study.
