“First of all, I would like to thank Young Jun Yu at Car & Tech Magazine for selecting our Wheel Repair Mask and honouring us with this award. We pride ourselves on listening to our customers problems and finding the solutions which this product is a great example of. Thanks to everyone involved it was a great team effort.” Oliver Jevons, Managing Director of JTAPE.

The SEMA Global Media Awards Program recognises those companies that manufacture specialty equipment products and accessories that would have mass appeal to consumers in countries outside the United States. The products are voted on by a prestigious group of international journalists who serve as judges.

“The idea of customisation and personalisation has been growing throughout world” said Linda Spencer, SEMA director of international and government relations. “Our goal is to have media experts from around the world determine which new products are likely to succeed in their home markets. The automotive specialty-equipment market is made up of enthusiasts who are passionate about the hobby, and so it’s exciting to see how their love for cars, trucks and SUVs is impacting those throughout the world.”

This year’s programme included about 30 judges from 19 countries. Each judge carefully reviewed and evaluated nearly 3,000 product entries at the SEMA Show before selecting the products that they felt would resonate and appeal most to consumers in their home countries.
