LAS VEGAS — Hunter Engineering Co.'s Revolution tire changer with "WalkAway" operation has garnered a Global Media Award from the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) in voting by a panel of international journalists at the recent SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
The latest Hunter Revolution changer — which automates the bead-breaking and demounting functions — was judged a winner by the editors of "Off-Road Drive," a Russian monthly magazine and website.
The SEMA Global Media Awards Program recognizes those companies that manufacture specialty equipment products and accessories that would have mass appeal to consumers in countries outside the U.S.
"Our goal is to have media experts from around the world determine which new products are likely to succeed in their home markets," said Linda Spencer, SEMA Director of International and Government Relations.
This year's program included 30 judges from 19 countries, who reviewed and evaluated nearly 3,000 product entries at the SEMA Show, which ran Oct. 31-Nov. 2 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
