PACE Award Trophy

The PACE Award (Premier Automotive Suppliers’ Contribution to Excellence Award) is an annual award from Automotive News in collaboration with Ernst & Young and through 2016 the Transportation Research Center Inc. (TRC Inc.). For the 2016-17 awards OESA, the Original Equipment Suppliers Association, will be a sponsor alongside EY. Automotive News and EY founded the award to celebrate innovation, technological advancement and business performance among automotive suppliers. It is given annually since 1995 in a black-tie ceremony the week of the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) convention in Detroit.

The focus of the award is an innovation developed primarily by a supplier, that is new to the automotive industry, that is in use, and that "changes the rules of the game." Awards have been given for products, materials, processes, capital equipment and services. A panel of independent judges from industry, finance, research, and academia choose finalists from the initial applicants, make site visits to evaluate the innovation, and then gather to select winners, independent of the sponsors. Winners to date include suppliers from Japan, Korea, the US, Canada, Brazil and an array of European countries.[1] Among the most awarded companies over the years are BorgWarner, Delphi Automotive, Federal-Mogul and PPG Industries as well as Robert Bosch GmbH, Gentex Corporation, Johnson Controls and Siemens AG.[2]
