First to Market

From the first blow-mold machine in 1949 to our latest full plastic hybrid tank, we have maintained a “first to market” trend with regards to our products and innovation.  We've proven ourselves as the leader in the conversion of steel to plastic and continue to do so with our Pentatonic Battery Portfolio. Our Allegro Cleaning System offers smart, customized sensor cleaning for every level of autonomous vehicle in the era of new mobility. 

Our employees are part of a global community committed to solving customer needs, leveraging diverse skill sets, making sustainability a differentiator, embracing the diversity that is part of a global, multi-industry leader and creating an environment where employees can build a dynamic career.
