At the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, Arlon brought together installers from all over the world into one booth for a prestigious wrap competition hosted by Arlon, “Arlon Automotive World Wrap Mania”.
The event started off with 6 teams, each with 5 installers, competing for the title of “Best Quality Wrap” or “Most Creative Wrap”. Each team brought unique qualities, skills and their creative minds to the competition which attracted crowds from all over the show floor.
The Arlon Automotive World Wrap Mania competition gave these top installers the first opportunity to work with the newly released Ultimate PremiumPlus™ Silver Chrome, and other Arlon favorites including: Blue Aluminum and Toxic Green. Each team was tasked with wrapping half of a vehicle in a limited three hour timeframe which included the most complex areas of the vehicle. A team of Arlon Automotive specialists judged each team’s execution on quality and creative design. After a neck to neck performance from each team, the competition proved to be a battle to the end.
The Wrap Society led by Team Captain, Niel Scotto of ND Vinyl, was awarded the “Best Quality Wrap” and the “Most Creative Wrap” was awarded to Team R.I.C.O. led by Team Captain, Carl Brewer of The Wrap Installers. Both teams showed exceptional skills in each category which led to their victory.
"Each Arlon wrap competition presents a unique set of challenges for the installers and this year’s competition did not disappoint. The inclusion of Arlon’s new Silver Chrome demanded a higher level of skill and innovative thinking from the installers,” states Ritchie Daize, Business Development Manager – Automotive, Arlon Graphics, LLC.
