NRD, LLC – NRD® was recognized with a 2017 Global Media Award November 1, 2017 at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas for its Staticmaster® Neutralizer® AC Static Control Gun.

“The Neutralizer AC is unique in that it gets the job done right the first time,” said John Glynn II, Director of Sales and Marketing, NRD, LLC. “Perfection is key in this industry. This gun removes static quickly and easily, so debris stays out of the work environment, improving productivity and profitability.”

For the sixth year, 30 top automotive journalists or judges from 19 countries throughout Asia, Europe, South Africa, North and South America served on the SEMA Global Media Awards (GMA) panel. Each judge carefully reviewed and evaluated nearly 3,000 product entries at the SEMA Show before selecting the products they felt would have mass appeal to automotive personalization and customization markets in their home countries and worldwide.
