We discussed goal setting techniques that can be applied to business goals and outside ambitions. Atlanta was overflowing with local automotive industry related events in early 2016. In January, Next Generation Manufacturing hosted a Young Professionals networking event and SAE Atlanta welcomed HondaJet Aircraft Company Representative, Samantha A. Magill PhD,  as the featured speaker of their quarterly meeting. On February 3, Tunc Kip, from Temel Gaskets and Olivia Whitehurst, from Global Parts Distributors, hosted a YANG Regional Meet-Up with guest speaker Glenn Carver, VP of Business Development and DeltaWings Technologies, who spoke about making beneficial career moves and finding your passion. In late January, Temel Gaskets participated in Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) 2016 where attendees were presented with the latest product developments from the heavy duty industry.

Temel Gaskets USA Attends Formula SAE Competition

On February 27, 2016, Temel Gaskets USA attended the 4th Annual Formula South Invitational at Kennesaw State University, in Marietta, Georgia.

We enjoyed watching the phases of competition, which included events in acceleration, autocross, endurance, and a skid pad test. During the 6-hour event, spectators were entertained by testing variety of Porsche vehicles and other exotic cars. It was exciting to see the results of the impressive work students invested in designing and building their dynamic formula style vehicles. We enjoyed engaging with enthusiastic engineering students who are the upcoming leaders of auto industry. SAE International, the Society of Automotive and Aerospace Engineers, is the parent organization of Formula SAE, which was founded in 1979, as a design competition. The concept comes from the idea that universities are being contracted by an imaginary manufacturing company to build a small formula style car that will be evaluated for its production potential. The car is designed, built, and tested by a team of students, and the competitions have expanded to Australia, Brazil, Japan, and select European countries. Temel Gaskets aims to support the next generation of engineers and contribute to their education. We believe in sharing our extensive engineering knowledge and years of expertise in designing, developing, manufacturing high precision sealing solutions for the automotive industry. We...
