Do you think you have what it takes to challenge the industry’s best trimmers and come out on top? Then enter “NC Interior of the Year.”
NC Carpet Binding & Equipment is excited to host the auto upholstery industry’s premier competition for a fourth straight year.
“The 2018, 2019 and 2020 contests produced some epic interiors,” said Mal Maher, CEO. “But it’s more than that. It’s about getting recognized globally and competing against the best. If it were me, I’d gunning for the bragging rights alone.”
“We couldn’t turn down an opportunity to support the hardworking craftsmen and women in this industry,” said Brodie Smith, head of aviation and automotive sales at Douglass.
“Mal called us up to ask if we were in — and we said ‘hell yeah!'”
THE PRIZES ARE AWESOME
The 2021 winner will receive a MONSTER TROPHY to display in his shop; an NC Leather Skiver, complete with a servo motor workstation + Vacuum system; and $2,500 gift certificate to Douglass to spend on premium automotive leather, fabric or carpets. That’s a $4300 value.
Of course, the winner will also be profiled on The Hog Ring.
“Want to be seen and recognized? What better way than to be judged by some of the industry’s best trimmers and have your work viewed world-wide? Raise your shop profile, push yourself, and show us what you got,” said Mal.
This year’s contest will be voted on by a panel of elite shops and industry insiders:
