CLEARWATER, FL--(Marketwired - May 13, 2014) - Infusion Brands, Inc., a leading consumer product brand marketing company, operating under the public company As Seen On TV, Inc. (OTCQB: ASTV), today announced that its Dual Tools brand, known for its unique, patented dual counter-rotating technology, received the Silver Award for Most Innovative New Product at the 2014 National Hardware Show. The award was given for Dual Tool's newest product -- two tools in one -- the PS7000, a dual counter-rotating polisher and sander, for its overall product, packaging, consumer appeal, and industrial design innovation.
The Dual Tools PS7000 Polisher/Sander is the world's first dual counter-rotating polisher and sander. Its inner and outer pads spin in opposite directions for ease of use as a polisher, while preventing swirl marks, burning and marring that occur with a regular random orbital sander. The PS7000's ergonomic two-handle design makes it easy to use and switch from one accessory to the next, allowing consumers to wax, clean, sand, and polish all with this one revolutionary tool.
This year's New Product Launch Awards, presented by Kevin Weiss of SkyMall, Inc., recognized leaders in innovation and groundbreaking products new to market in 2014. Most exciting is the fact that Dual Tools beat out The Robert Bosch Group who took third place.
"We're honored to have been awarded the Silver Award for New Product Launch at this year's National Hardware Show," said Bob DeCecco, Chairman and CEO of As Seen On TV, Inc. "To place better than a multi-billion dollar company like Robert Bosch Group at the National Hardware Show is testament to the new innovation we are bringing to the hardware space and should provide our distribution partners an exciting new product to offer their customers validated by our industry peers."
Leveraging the success and award-winning innovation, quality, and value of the original DualSaw, the PS7000 marks the first of many new product line extensions in the power tool category for the Dual Tools brand.
Dual Tools' award-winning PS7000 Polisher/Sander is currently available at Lowes and www.DualTools.com.
