The team at Koda knows lights are more than a fixture, more than just a household necessity. The right light creates joy, does good for our environment and adds brightness to life while serving as an expression of yourself. That’s why we are constantly are developing forward-thinking and innovative designs.

One of our most popular designs, the LED Linkable Shop Light has been selected by Hardware Retailing magazine as one of its recipients for the Innovation Award. The Innovation Award is an annual accolade given out by Hardware Retailing magazine, one of the top publications in the realm of home improvement. The award recognizes products with a lot of potential for retail sales.

For the year 2020, the magazine dispatched judges to the virtual National Hardware Show® held in October 2020 in search of unique and eye-catching merchandise with real retail potential. In 2020, a total of 31 products were chosen, one of which was our LED Linkable Shop Light. Unlike other awards, judges for the Innovation Award do not come from the magazine's editorial team. Still, they are actual retailers who have real-world experience with what sells and what doesn't. Hardware Retailing's Innovation Awards have been around for over 50 years, which speaks volumes to the publication's credibility and expert status in the home improvement industry.

They identified Koda’s LED Linkable Shop Light as the perfect balance of aesthetics, technology, and utility for both commercial and personal use. The shop light allows a maximum of 6 lights to be connected to a single power source, decreasing the need for messy wires and multiple light switches. It is equipped with LED lights to provide providing bright lighting to large spaces. It is outfitted with advanced motion-sensing technology allowing the light fixtures to turn on and off automatically.

We are proud to receive this award as it recognizes the passion, innovation, creativity, and teamwork the people at Koda bring each and every day as we follow our mission to light the way for a better tomorrow, one memorable moment at a time.
