MOR/ryde International Inc.’s Slidezilla truck bed slide was recognized with a 2013 Global Media Award last week during the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas. According to a press release, the Slidezilla represents the Elkhart, Ind.-based supplier’s entry into the truck aftermarket sector.
Slidezilla doubles a truck’s cargo space, the company stated. Positioned above the wheel wells, SlideZilla’s patented design creates an easy-to-use, bunk-storage system that creates more storage than competing truck slides. The truck bed slide also carries a five-year warranty.
The SEMA Global Media Awards Program recognizes companies that manufacture specialty equipment products and accessories that would have mass appeal to consumers around the world. The products are voted on by a prestigious group of international journalists who serve as judges.
This year the program included 36 judges from 19 countries. Each judge carefully reviewed and evaluated nearly 2,500 product entries at the SEMA Show before selecting the products that they felt would resonate and appeal most to consumers in their home countries. SlideZilla was chosen as one of the Top 10 products that would be of most interest and most likely to succeed commercially in the U.S.
