PACE 2016

PACE™ Awards judges and TRC Inc. team members are currently reviewing the 22nd annual Automotive News PACE™ Awards (Premier Automotive Suppliers’ Contribution to Excellence) finalists, which were announced in October 2015.

TRC Inc. has sponsored the Automotive News PACE™ Awards since 2001, making 2016 its 15th year of honoring automotive suppliers who have embraced innovation or adapted and reinvented themselves to meet the demands of the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) customer.

TRC Inc. team members join the PACE™ judges at various award site visits, serving as sponsors and co-reviewers of the innovation finalists. Winners will be announced on April 11, 2016 at Max M. Fisher Music Center in Detroit, Michigan at a special ceremony held during SAE 2016 World Congress.

On October 28, 2015, TRC Inc. Chief Operating Officer Jeffrey Sprague spoke at a pre-judging ceremony in Detroit, Michigan, honoring the applicants and finalists. TRC Inc. team members will travel to Michigan to support the announcing of the PACE™ Award winners at SAE 2016 World Congress, supporting a prestigious award which sets the standard for ingenuity and excellence and has become a significant industry credential.

The PACE™ Awards finalists’ innovations are ultimately validated at the TRC Inc. proving ground, giving TRC Inc. a natural link to the latest novelties and an opportunity to acknowledge customers and their efforts in the market place.
