Global growth consulting firm Frost & Sullivan presented Ansell Protective Products with two awards: the 2008 Frost & Sullivan Award for Market Strategy Leadership and the 2008 Frost & Sullivan Award for Market Leadership in the North American protective gloves market. Frost & Sullivan presents the respective awards each year to the leader in a particular marketplace, and to the company whose marketing strategy has yielded significant gains in market presence during the research period. This year, Ansell meets both those criteria.
"For more than 100 years, Ansell has been recognized for its innovations and leadership in the hand protection and safety apparel industry," stated Marina Rosemberg, PPE Analyst for North America, Frost & Sullivan. "These awards are presented in acknowledgement of Ansell's comprehensive market strategy and dominant leadership position in the U.S. protective gloves market."
According to the Frost & Sullivan announcements, the awards recognize Ansell's proactive market growth strategy, knowledge and skill at addressing end-user problems with the right solutions, and drive to develop novel products and services aimed at addressing unmet user needs. Frost & Sullivan detailed several factors in choosing Ansell for the award, including innovative hand protection products such as Sol-Vex®, Scorpio®, Hycron®, PawGard™, ArmorKnit™, AlphaTEC® and the HyFlex® line of gloves.
The Frost & Sullivan awards state that through a commitment to a comprehensive market strategy, Ansell has successfully differentiated itself from competitors through innovative new product development, an effective and innovative Web site, a high degree of end-user acceptance, and the continuous ability to innovate in an increasingly diverse market space.
