November 10, 2021, Detroit. The 2021 SPE Automotive Innovation Awards Competition & Gala nominated Omega Tool Corp along with Plastic Omnium for Tier 1 DFM activities and Manufacturing Development category #14 for the Ford MachE 727 liftgate.
For almost 50 years the SPE Automotive Innovation Awards Program has been the most prestigious and largest competition of its kind in the world. Dozens of teams made up of OEMs, tier suppliers, and polymer producers submit nominations describing their part, system, or complete vehicle and why it merits the claim as the Year’s Most Innovative Use of Plastics. This annual event typically draws over 700 OEM engineers, automotive and plastics industry executives, and media. As is customary, funds raised from this event are used to support SPE educational efforts and technical seminars, which help educate and secure the role of plastics in the advancement of the automobile.
We appreciate the nomination and look forward to the competition next year.
