The Q-LED GameChanger by Qualite has been named a 2017 Award Finalist by the internationally renowned Edison Awards™. The distinguished awards, inspired by Thomas Edison’s persistence and inventiveness, recognize innovation, creativity and ingenuity in the global economy.

"It’s exciting to see companies like Qualite continuing Thomas Edison’s legacy of challenging conventional thinking,” said Frank Bonafilia, Edison Awards’ Executive Director. “Edison Awards recognizes the game-changing products and services, and the teams that brought them to consumers."

Eric Boorom, Qualite’s owner, adds that "The Qualite team is overwhelmed with excitement. The Edison Award is a testament to the insight, intuitiveness and somewhat radical development of the GameChanger product. We knew we wanted to make a statement to the industry, and the recognition granted to us by the Edison Award has validated our work; this is our greatest honor in the company’s history."

Edison Award nominees are judged by more than 3,000 senior business executives and academics from across the nation whose votes acknowledge the Finalists’ success in meeting the award’s stringent criteria of quality.
