The award was presented for a two-material door panel, for the 2007 Dodge Caliber, that is being produced on a 1,820 ton (16,500 kN) Husky Quadloc two-material rotary machine. The part features a substrate with soft-touch overmolding.

The award is the second SPE Automotive Innovation Award presented to Husky in the past three years. Husky also was part of the group that won in the Process/Assembly/Enabling Technologies category in 2004 for a two-shot instrument panel for the 2005 Ford Mustang.
In addition to its Bolton facility, Husky has manufacturing centres in the U.S., Luxembourg and China, and approximately 40 service and sales offices worldwide.
