Arlington Heights, IL (March 4, 2015) — min, a publication and website dedicated to coverage of consumer and trade publications, recently announced the finalists for its annual Best of the Web & Digital Awards, honoring those who “took chances and made tremendous strides in the digital space.” SGC Horizon Building Group’s Inside Video Series was named as one of nine finalists in the Video: Overall Use of Video category, sharing the limelight with such notables as Sports Illustrated, Golf Digest, Essence, Runner’s World, and Crain’s New York Business.

SGC Horizon’s Director of Digital Media Adam Grubb is the host, writer and producer of the Inside Video Series, which takes viewers behind the scenes of a building product manufacturing facility. Grubb partnered with Illinois-based WideEye Productions’ Ed Plamondon, director of photography, co-producer and editor, and Garry Grasinski, primary shooter, of Grayson Media in Chicago. Each Inside Video Series video is archived for on-demand viewing at SGC Horizon brands’ websites, www.ProBuilder.com, www.ProRemodeler.com and www.BDCnetwork.com.
