“We regularly talk to NSCA members about how integrator-customer relationships are changing,” said NSCA executive director Tom LeBlanc. “Some of the new solutions being unveiled by manufacturers are helping integrators transform the way they do business and support these new customer demands. This awards program is one way to recognize manufacturers for what they bring to the industry.”
