Many people know Accuride as a premium drawer slide manufacturer. While drawer slides are a big part of our business, we are much more than that; we’re a provider of movement and access control solutions for a wide variety of industries, including Automotive!
This year, we attended The 11th Annual Seating Innovators Summit in Detroit. The summit, hosted by Automotive IQ, was held on July 26-28 at The Greektown Casino-Hotel in Detroit, MI. This event provides a forum for industry experts to share design concepts and showcase the latest developments in the automotive seating space.
Accuride Product Manager, John Kovatch, had the pleasure of hosting an open forum discussion on Movement Solutions for Next-Gen Seating Systems. John discussed enhancing seating comfort with extensible surfaces, delivering interior value with premium movement solutions, and movement requirements of the future.
