Arlington Heights, IL (October 22, 2018) — Two Scranton Gillette Communications/SGC Horizon brands — Professional Builder and Furniture, Lighting & Decor — were honored by Folio: at the 2018 Eddie and Ozzie Awards Oct. 9. The awards program recognizes excellence in editorial (Eddies) and design (Ozzies) across consumer, B2B, custom and association magazines.

Professional Builder was the winner in the Column/Blog category for B2B Building & Construction. In his award-winning column, “Grand Theft Home Building/Welcome to Your VPO Nightmare,” Contributing Editor Scott Sedam implored builders to understand the true wastefulness of variance purchase orders, using real-world scenarios to demonstrate how such practices impact a company’s bottom line.

In addition, Professional Builder won two Honorable Mentions in the Eddie Awards: Full Issue, B2B General category for the January 2018 issue, and Profile/Q&A in the B2B category for “Active Culture.” The magazine also scored Honorable Mentions in two Ozzie Award categories: Feature Design, B2B Above 100,000 Circulation, and Overall Design (single magazine issue), B2B, for the February 2018 issue.

Furniture, Lighting & Decor won Honorable Mentions for two Eddie Awards, as well, earning accolades in the Series of Articles, B2B, Shelter/Home/Garden category for its Made in America series (“Made in Post-Globalized America" and "O Say Can You See”) and in the B2B Website category.
