Brea, Calif. – Earlier this year 6D Helmets submitted a 90 second video to Fast Company Magazine’s “Drive Your Business Forward” contest depicting how a Sprinter van would help support their business. 6D was chosen out of hundreds of entries by the Fast Company Magazine and Mercedes Benz judging panel to receive the customized award. On November 6th 2013, during Fast Company’s Innovation Uncensored event held in downtown San Francisco, Mercedes’ Antje Williams presented 6D’s Bob Weber and Robert Reisinger with the keys to their amazing van. Amie Deutch, Fast Company’s Associate Publisher stated; “Fast Company covers the intersection of great design, technology and innovation – and 6D Helmets fuses these elements together into a game-changing product. We chose 6D as the winner of the Drive Your Business Forward contest because they are poised to impact the entire helmet industry, and a new Sprinter will allow them to bring their business to the next level.” 6D’s Bob Weber was thrilled. “We are very fortunate to receive this amazing award. This van just ices the cake on a simply incredible year for our company! “
6D Helmets would like to thank everyone involved in the process of outfitting the Mercedes Benz Sprinter with all the necessary tools for the 6D crew to assist customers while attending events. Ron Weaver and the staff at Automotive Designs & Fabrication in San Fernando, CA completed the project constructing a mobile office in the front and a helmet workshop in the rear. Thanks to PPG Paints, Kelly & Son’s The Crazy Painters, Kicker Audio, Clarion Audio, Matrix Concepts and RB Components for their generous contributions to the project.
