Behind The Tech


 

Behind the Tech

Our mission is quite simple at MacNeil Automotive Products Limited. We strive to continually exceed our customers expectations, and it shows not only in every product that wears the WeatherTech brand, but in our culture as well. Let's delve a bit deeper "Behind the Tech"!

Committed To Quality

From concept to consumer, MacNeil Automotive has long been recognized by the discerning automotive enthusiast as a supplier of accessories of unparalleled quality. In addition to the WeatherTech brand, we supply products to many Automobile Manufacturers (OEM) as an Original Equipment Supplier. In fact, MacNeil currently supplies accessories to all four German manufacturers of luxury automobiles as well as a host of other automobile manufacturers worldwide! Our commitment to Quality shows in our continued certification to the ISO9001 Quality Standard.

Our impeccable attention to detail begins here, from the moment we answer your call, directly to fulfillment!

Where great ideas take shape

The Downers Grove Product Development is where great ideas take shape. R&D, Engineering, Product Design, Tool Manufacture and Marketing all come together to create the finest Automotive Accessories available, from Concept to Consumer!

Our product development engineers utilize the most sophisticated tools available for data capture and reverse engineering of complex vehicle geometry such as floor surfaces, cargo areas, window openings or fenders. As a result, the customer is assured the highest standards are met in terms of the fit and finish of our products.

Engineering Standards

Our industrial designers, tool design team and manufacturing staff utilize fully integrated Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacture (CAM) software platforms. Solid modeling creates a virtual 3D representation of components for part design and analysis and we also use freeform surface modeling in which surfaces are defined, trimmed and merged to make a solid, essentially designing a product and proving its feasibility on the computer.

Our "virtual" product design is then validated with rapid prototyping technology by creating a finished solid prototype part from the CAD data in our Stereo Lithography Machines. From here, minor modifications to the part design can be refined prior to the tool development process, saving considerable time and expense.

Once the prototype meets our approval, the tooling is developed. Using the most current American-made technology available in Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machine centers, complex 3-D surfaces are relatively easy to produce, and the number of machining steps that require human interaction have been dramatically reduced.

Customer Service

Our sophisticated call center places an emphasis on a pleasant work environment for our highly trained sales specialists. Your time is valuable, so we ensure that the tools necessary to efficiently serve our customers are at their disposal. Whether you wish to order product, have an application question, or need customer service, each representative is eager to help!
