It’s always an honor to receive industry recognition for our efforts to revolutionize auto manufacturing, and today we are proud to announce that Frost & Sullivan has selected Divergent 3D as the recipient of the 2016 North American Technology Innovation Award.

This annual award is presented to the company that has “demonstrated uniqueness in developing and leveraging new technologies that impact both the functionality and the customer value of the new products and applications.”

To achieve this award, we underwent a rigorous review process with Frost & Sullivan analysts independently evaluating and scoring two key factors: Technology Attributes and Future Business Value. Frost & Sullivan looked in-depth at the Divergent Manufacturing Platform™, our proprietary Node™ connectors, as well as the Blade supercar, the first vehicle built upon our technology. We received a score of 9 and 9.5 out of a possible 10 in the two categories, the highest score given amongst companies undergoing the same review process.

In its detailed analysis, Frost & Sullivan concluded:

“Divergent 3D’s advanced chassis architecture can easily be deployed in automotive and other applications to optimize performance, increase energy efficiency, and reduce life-cycle emissions. Frost & Sullivan’s independent analysis clearly shows that the technology will provide excellent customer value and increase their return on investment by reducing manufacturing and assembly costs.  Its technological achievements have earned Divergent 3D Frost & Sullivan’s 2016 North America Technology Innovation Award for Structural Manufacturing in the Automotive Industry.”
