MILWAUKEE – The New England Motor Press Association (NEMPA) selected BOLT® Lock as the recipient of the 2018 NEMPA Yankee Supplier Award. This specific award is given to automotive suppliers who have made significant contributions to the industry, whether by making driving safer, more cost-efficient or more enjoyable. 

NEMPA hosts the awards annually in an effort to recognize manufacturers, suppliers and industry professionals who have brought excellence to the automotive industry. Members of NEMPA selected the winner of the supplier award. The awards are tailored to the automotive needs and tastes of New England drivers. 

The Yankee Supplier Award was presented at NEMPA’s Annual Awards dinner held at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, Massachusetts on May 30, 2018. BOLT Lock’s “Breakthrough One-Key Lock Technology” is a unique technological advancement which allows every lock in the product line to be specifically coded to a vehicle’s ignition key. Key-ring clutter is greatly reduced as every cable, coupler, receiver, padlock and more can be locked and unlocked using only the vehicle’s key. 

“All of us at BOLT Lock are thrilled to receive this award. The technology is a great advancement that makes securing a driver’s valuables simple without any of the headache of searching through to find the right key,” said Steve Gilles, Director of New Business Development for BOLT Lock.
