SEMA 2011 Hose Candy Wins In Ford & Kia Booth

SEMA 2011 Hose Candy Wins In Ford & Kia Booth

Hose Candy equipped vehicles are featured in the Ford and Kia booths at SEMA 2011. We were sure excited when we received the news about some of the specialty vehicles at SEMA 2011 that were equipped with Hose Candy. I was especially excited about the Ford and Kia projects. My only disappointment was these feature vehicles had their hoods closed. I know builders like the looks of their cars with the hoods closed to show off all the subtle design features, but I sure wanted to open the hoods. I was resigned to take pictures of the vehicles and our decals.

Additionally, Hose Candy™ received two Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Global Media Awards during the 2011 SEMA Show for their new Barb Bite™ hose retainer kits and Hose Skins™, which slide over stock or custom hoses to create the ultimate custom look.

“This is the fourth Global Media Award for our company in three years, and we are honored that the global automotive community continues to recognize our high-quality products designed to improve the look and performance of under hood engine compartments,” said CEO and founder Jon Petty.

Hose Candy received its Global Media Awards from a voting panel of 25 journalists from leading consumer and trade publications representing 13 countries.  SEMA introduced the Global Media Award program in 2004 to highlight the wide appeal to enthusiasts on every continent of specialty-equipment products that are on display at the SEMA Show.
