Teadit Honored with 2019 SEAL Award

Teadit North America President, Chris Day, is calling their latest achievement, the SEAL Award, “One for the thumb!” This award rolls in as the 5th for Teadit’s Origin Technology, currently utilized in the RC510 Gasket.

This recognition, however, is different from the previous awards which all focused on the innovation of the technology itself. The SEAL (Sustainability, Environmental Achievement and Leadership) Award recognizes Environmental Initiatives and is the first accolade for Teadit’s Origin Technology based on the sustainability of its manufacturing process. This is something that hits close to home for Teadit, as their mission is “Sealing for a Safer and Greener Tomorrow.” The award was evaluated, and selected, based upon key criteria such as, impact metrics, innovation, sharing of insights, and investment levels.
