Experi-Metal Receives Tesla 2014 Award

Recently, EMI was invited to attend the Tesla Motors Supplier Day Event in Fremont, California. Only the top 300 suppliers in the world were invited to attend. Of the 300 invitees, 15 received a special recognition award — Experi-Metal is proud to be one of those recipients.

  • Numerous battery enclosure development projects
  • Manufacturing the first 17 Model S Alpha Body-in-Whites and several additional BIW sets of parts for assembly
  • On-going support on an as-needed basis for Right Hand Drive, European (EU) and Dual Motor (D) versions
  • Extensive manufacturing capacity commitment for new products
  • On-site plant level skilled-trades support for product assembly in Fremont, CA

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors, demonstrated his appreciation by personally presenting this special award to Gerry King, who proudly represented EMI on this special occasion.
