The mission at MacNeil Automotive Products Limited is quite simple. They strive to continually exceed their customers' expectations, and it shows not only in every product that wears the WeatherTech brand, but in their culture as well. Let's delve a bit deeper "Behind the Tech"!
Since 1989, MacNeil Automotive has been providing the best in automotive protection and vehicle accessories. WeatherTech® brand has been servicing the world with top-of-the-line vehicle protection, continually exceeding expectations and setting the industry bar that much higher. They favor the American Economy, and work hard to stay adamantly aware of sustainability and environmental best practices. Their investment in revolutionary technology ensures a superior product quality for our customers and symbolizes their commitment to excellence in everything that they do. They want to ensure that they provide only the best in customer service, and that starts with quality products and processes.
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, they 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!
Their commitment to Quality shows in their recent certification to the ISO/TS 16949 Quality Standard prepared by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF) and the Technical Committee of the ISO.
Modern Corporate Headquarters in beautiful Bolingbrook, Illinois houses the talented team of WeatherTech Customer Service Representatives. Their impeccable attention to detail begins there, from the moment CARiD answers your call, directly to fulfillment!
The machine shop at MacNeil Automotive is equipped with 17 CNC machining centers including four 4-axis mills and one 5-axis mill that produce between 30 to 50 injection and thermoforming molds per month. They have one shift of highly skilled American Journeymen toolmakers and apprentices, but their machines run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Here, your order is processed with accuracy and efficiency - prior to delivery to your doorstep.
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!
Their 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 their products.
Their 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 they 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.
Their "virtual" product design is then validated with rapid prototyping technology by creating a finished solid prototype part from the CAD data in their 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 their approval, the tooling is developed. Using the most current American-made technology available in Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machine centers, complex 3D surfaces are relatively easy to produce, and the number of machining steps that require human interaction has been dramatically reduced.
By having all manufacturing facilities located here in USA, MacNeil Automotive are as dedicated to designing, developing and manufacturing the finest automotive accessories for their consumer and OEM clients as they are passionate about supporting the American economy, preserving the American industrial infrastructure, and keeping the money in our family, a family of 300 million people from all over America.
At MacNeil Automotive Products Limited everyone is proud of their investment in the American manufacturing infrastructure and truly understands the marketplace they serve. Through creativity, productivity and innovation - with an eye toward conservation, they will continue to develop the finest automotive accessories you can purchase to protect, or enhance your vehicle ownership experience - simply-put, doing things right!
