Great Stuff™ Smart Dispenser™ wins platinum and gold awards for its innovative and effective marketing campaigns from commercial and residential construction leader


WILMINGTON, Del.., Feb. 20, 2020 – Great Stuff™ has been named the winner of two Hanley Wood 2019 Brand Builder Awards, earning the industry’s highest honors for its exceptional Great Stuff™ Smart Dispenser™ marketing campaigns. The winning entries were selected for executing campaigns that generate sales, motivate buying behavior and inspire customer loyalty by Hanley Wood, the housing industry’s data leader backed by Zonda and Metrostudy, and the industry’s top residential real estate development and new home construction advisors.

“For over 40 years, Great Stuff™ has been a trusted and legacy brand, but what’s unique about the launch of the Smart Dispenser™ is that the innovation is rooted in the customer’s desire to have a better experience with the product,” said Heather Smith, Global Brand & Digital Marketing Leader, DuPont Performance Building Solutions. “The Smart Dispenser™ addresses customer pain points by offering less mess, no drips and 30-day reusability. We knew this innovation was something special, so igniting a digitally focused omni-channel campaign that spoke to and reached our customer was imperative for increased market adoption. Equally important was for the campaign to create a deeper trust and affinity to the Great Stuff™ brand and I’m proud to say, we achieved both. We are truly honored to receive this recognition from Hanley Wood, a prestigious and like-minded partner in the builder community.”
