Atlanta (Jan- 2012) – Tile Doctor Shield™, the first non-toxic antimicrobial product approved for hard surfaces that has no potential for legacy environmental concerns, has been named as a finalist by the Robison College of Business at Georgia State University, in association with the Atlanta Business Chronicle.  Each year the MAX Awards recognizes outstanding marketing innovations introduced in Georgia in the previous year with the Marketing Award of Excellence – the MAX Awards.

“We are extremely honored to be a finalist for such a reputable award, we feel Shield is a game changer in the household cleaning space and this recognition reinforces our hard work and commitment to create a product that is not only effective but is also non-toxic and 100 percent safe to use in the home,” said Curt Rapp, founder and CEO of The Tile Doctor.  “At The Tile Doctor our goal is to provide continuous innovation and environmentally-friendly products, and it’s truly humbling for Shield to be recognized for just that.”
