The cart powers a scale and a printer. The light was conceived as a way to get the attention of a forklift driver to let them know assistance is needed (usually referring to a pallet that has been completed and is ready to be moved.)

For his creativity and willingness to share it, Ron and his team will be receiving a $500 Visa gift card and the winners trophy. Ron and the other semi-finalists will all be receiving a SWAG-pack of Brookstone wireless speakers and stainless steel water bottles.

The other three semi-finalists and runners-up were:

1. Rob Dugan of Franke Management, Inc. - for the "Shock Reduction Handle" sourced externally and configured to make the movement of almost any cart on the floor more ergonomic.

2. Arielle Evans of McMaster Carr - for the "Trick Out Kit" of accessories that customize their Newcastle carts with a magnetic tool strip, a small box for additional tools, a clip-board clip attached to the top of the work surface and other work-improving additions.
