Knaack Manufacturing Co. was the recipient of the New Product Innovation Award during the Work Truck Show, March 1-3 in Atlanta.

The award was for the new line of Weather Guard steel truck boxes, which according to the company feature enhanced jobsite security and productivity. Knaack also won for its low-profile aluminum truck boxes that are designed to give contractors better visibility through the rear window.

"We are very excited about winning the New Product Innovation Award for two main reasons," said Chad Severson, Knaack's vice president of marketing and product development. "First, the award was determined by our customer base, attendees of the Work Truck Show. This is truly a special honor. Second, the award demonstrates our commitment to end-user-focused, new product innovation in our Weather Guard line of truck and van equipment."
