Waukesha, Wis. – Generac® Power Systems, Inc., Waukesha, Wis., a leading manufacturer of standby and portable power generation equipment, has earned the Good Housekeeping Seal, one of the most prestigious and trusted emblems of quality in the industry.
Originating in Good Housekeeping’s December 1909 issue, the Seal gained recognition as the most important guide in consumer purchasing. To celebrate the 100th birthday of the Seal, Good Housekeeping has introduced a new emblem celebrating its century-long commitment to backing exceptional products.
“The Good Housekeeping Seal recognizes Generac’s commitment to quality products, ingenuity, and integrity,” says Clement Feng, executive VP and chief marketing officer, Generac. “This accreditation opens a new door for the Generac brand that we hope will lead to new opportunities to influence the power generation industry and to continue to better serve our customers. We are very honored to have received such a distinguished commendation.”
After review by the Good Housekeeping Research Institute, Generac has impressively earned the Seal for a number of their product lines: The Generac Guardian Series of Residential Standby Generators, the Generac QuietSource Series, the XP and GP line of Generac portables, and the Centurion series.
”Over the past 100 years, the Seal has become the most respected and recognized emblem in the marketplace and today enjoys a 94 percent awareness among consumers. Its value to a company is indisputable – 81 percent of potential buyers say they are more likely to purchase a product with the Good Housekeeping Seal than a similar one without it,” according to Patricia Haegele, senior vice president/ publisher, Good Housekeeping. “We are thrilled to have Generac Power Systems as part of our great family of Seal-holding brands.”
Generac has consistently provided home and business owners the options they need to protect their family, businesses and valuables during power outages. Unlike its competitors, Generac is focused solely on generators, providing a broad line of diverse product offerings to make it easy for customers to depend on the Generac brand.
The Good Housekeeping Seal echoes Generac’s customer commitment by providing a limited two-year warranty on any of its sealed product lines. The limited warranty reflected by the Good Housekeeping Seal means that if a product bearing the Seal is defective within the first two years of purchase, Good Housekeeping will replace the product or refund the purchase price.
