Inteva Receives Prestigious Hall of Fame Award from SPE Automotive Division

Troy, Mich., United States

Inteva Products, a leading global Tier One automotive supplier of engineered components and systems, was named to the Automotive Division of the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE®) Hall of Fame for the thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) skin first used on the 2000 Pontiac Bonneville. Inteva accepted the recognition along with its customer, General Motors, at the SPE’s 47th annual Automotive Innovation Awards Competition & Gala last evening.


The Interior Systems engineering team that developed the revolutionary new material for the Bonneville instrument panel is now part of the team at Inteva, which was formed in 2008. The team was part of Delphi Automotive when the skin was initially developed.


Inteva continues to further develop the TPO skin under the Inteather™ brand. Inteather provides a leather-like feel that is scratch and mar resistant, does not fade or degrade in ultraviolet light, and is 100 percent recyclable. It also has improved safety by enabling air bag deployments, and reduced windshield fogging with the reduction of VOCs and odors. Inteather also improves interior quality by preventing brittle cracking, color fading and warping.


Inteva has received other industry awards for its Inteather material and interior systems that include it. These honors include the Grand Prize Innovation Award from the European Association of Automotive Suppliers (CLEPA); a finalist in Automotive News’ PACE Award; “Recycler of the Year” from the SPE Recycling Div.; and TPO – Engineered Polyolefin Recognition Award of an All Olefin, Soft Skin, Stitched Full Instrument Panel System from the SPE Automotive Division.


“We are honored to be part of the team named to SPE’s Hall of Fame,” said Lon Offenbacher, Inteva President, CEO and Founder who accepted the recognition along with Stephen Jenkins, GM Director, Global Proving Ground Operations, Test Labs and Vehicle Materials Engineering. “This recognition is a reflection of our commitment to the advancement of plastics technologies to meet our customers’ continued needs for high-performance, lightweight materials.”
