The Delta brand is proud to have been a recipient of many industry awards throughout the years as we continue to push the envelope of innovation. These awards give us a perennial opportunity to outdo ourselves with new technologies and designs, to advance industry standards and show the world what Delta can do.
In 2003, the Delta Trevi Kitchen and Bath Collections received top honors from Home Magazine for its ability to meet the high demands of today's lifestyles in terms of both form and function. Awards for Kitchen & Bath are chosen based on versatility, design and user experience.
Hailed as "the business world's own Oscars" by the New York Post, the American Business Awards are the first national, all-encompassing business awards program honoring great performances in the workplace. The Delta Monitor 1800 Series Jetted Shower XO garnered the award, nicknamed the "Stevie," in 2003 in the Best New Product category. Judges felt the faucet "exemplified the initiative to move away from conventional industry offerings and provide consumers with [a] unique and innovative product," according to Michael Gallagher, president of The American Business Awards.
Citing the company's ability to translate innovative design into business success, the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) and BusinessWeek magazine named the Delta brand as the 2003 Design and Business Catalyst Award recipient. The prestigious honor recognized the company’s Signature® and Waterfall® pull-out spray faucets as powerful industrial designs that established the Delta brand as a market leader. The Catalyst Award selects recipients from past winners of the IDEA Award.
