Toyota, at the vanguard of sustainable practices, entrusted our skilled team at Gator to forge an ingenious solution - a reusable ABS clamshell case that would revolutionize the shipping of car brake rotors. With precision and ingenuity, we embarked on a journey to create a practical product and supply chain, poised to deliver thousands of units each quarter.
Inspired by Toyota's commitment to environmental stewardship, we meticulously analyzed the dimensions and variations of the rotors. Sketching out innovative features and a secure closure system, we discovered the perfect harmony - a molded-in spindle that cradled the rotors within the clamshell. Collaborating with Toyota, we unveiled renderings and fine-tuned the design, ensuring every aspect aligned with their vision.
As the sustainable ABS clamshell case took its final form, Toyota enthusiastically embraced the innovative solution. With foresight, we arranged for production in a cutting-edge Vietnamese factory, facilitating container consolidation and offering remarkable cost efficiency. As the project was on the cusp of realization, unforeseen circumstances led to a temporary shelving, awaiting the propitious moment when Toyota HQ would reignite the initiative and propel it towards a greener tomorrow.
