ACE chosen as a Finalist for Supplier Innovation Challenge - February 2015
Advanced Chemical Etching (ACE) were chosen as one of the ten finalists for the MD&M West Show 2015 Supplier Innovation Challenge. ACE entered the challenge through an on-line survey in January, where they were asked to showcase an innovation developed between 2012 and the present. The brief was to "answer the six required questions in no more than 100 words each. Make sure to adequately state your case as to why your product, service or technology is truly innovative. Email a picture of the relevant product or service offering". ACE decided to enter their unique innovation TiME (Titanium Molecular Etching) process and set about writing a piece to fulfill the criteria and catch the eye of the judging panel.
ACE were contacted by the senior editor at Medical Device + Diagnostic Industry on the 6th February and were informed that they had been chosen as one of the finalists. This was a fantastic achievement considering that the challenge was open to over 2,000 exhibitors at the MD&M West Show, and the show is the largest Medical Technology event in the USA.
An on-line vote along with slideshows showing the ten finalists ran from the 10th - 11th February, encouraging readers to vote for their favourite innovation. Our Chairman and Technical Sales Manager were also interviewed as part of the challenge, at the MD&M West Show 2015 in Anaheim, CA. ACE were up against some stiff competition from the other nine finalists, some of whom are major players in the Medical Technology sector.
After the voting closed, ACE were informed that they had ranked third in the vote. Another proud moment for the company, ACE would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who took the time to vote for them.
