NOVI, Mich. – BrassCraft Manufacturing Company is pleased to announce that its Safety+Plus® Coated Stainless Steel Gas Connectors and The Easy Way to Hook Up a Faucet or Toilet merchandising each received a Gold Distinction in Merchandising award - the highest level possible - from the North American Retail Hardware Association (NRHA) at the recently concluded NRHA Packaging and Merchandising Awards (PMA).  In addition to the two top awards, BrassCraft's Universal Gas & Water Installation Kit, Ice Maker / Humidifier Installation Kit and Shop By Clog Location Reference Numbers each received an honorable mention.

"We are delighted to have these merchandising materials recognized by the NRHA.  They are designed to educate and to help sell products and we are pleased that the NRHA felt that they demonstrated a superior level of  merchandising excellence," said Mike Chapman, packaging engineer, BrassCraft Manufacturing.

BrassCraft® merchandising fuses the proven performance of its world-class products with leading-edge merchandising and packaging solutions designed to be user-friendly.  Each package contains detailed installation instructions to make installing products quick and easy.

The PMA showcases the best of the best in home improvement packaging and merchandising. To determine the winners, the NRHA invited expert judges to evaluate the competition. The judges weighed-in on each product across diverse categories such as Material Usage and Selection, Graphic Design, Informational Value, Shelf-Life, Innovation, and Attention-Capturing Ability. Entries that scored highest in each category and demonstrated superior levels of packaging or merchandising excellence won Gold Distinction, the PMA highest honors.

As Gold award winners, BrassCraft® products received public recognition during the PMA program at the NRHA Village and were on display at the PMA expo at the 2014 National Hardware Show in Las Vegas, NV, May 6-8.
