Congratulations!

For the 9th time, the Doors and Closures Award were bestowed on the best automotive OEM series hang-on part development, presented and exhibited at the annual Automotive Circle conference Doors and Closures in Car Body Engineering. The winner of this Award is determined through the voting of the whole expert audience.

At this year`s conference, Jaguar Land Rover impressed the audience with their excellent presentation and explanation of the doors and closures with respect to the new Jaguar I-Pace, and therefore won the Doors and Closures Systems Award 2018.

The speakers Kevin Welch and Simon Heyes presented various highlights of the new I-Pace’s doors and closures, starting with the full aluminium hang-on parts, the aerodynamic louvred bonnet, the polymer front fenders as well as the plastic reinforced tailgate and spoiler, and thus got best results from the expert audience.

Promoting ideas for the construction and production of such parts was the goal of this year’s international Automotive Circle conference on Doors and Closures in Car Body Engineering in Bad Nauheim. With hands-on presentations of latest OEM series hang-on-part projects, the discussion of new solutions by importing system suppliers, inspiring impulses about the future of mobility, future door concepts and challenges as well as the chance to inspect a number of recently launches full vehicles, the conference again addressed its network of 190 expert automobile engineers from all over the world.
