//  Industry Firsts
  • Multimatic HighValueCheck™ offers exceptional door control in an affordable, low-mass package.
  • Multimatic In-Wheel suspension eliminates conventional linkages by packaging motion control components within the wheel’s diameter.
  • Multimatic's championship-winning DSSV™ damper technology offers a proven competitive advantage over other damper products.
  • Multimatic developed the 'detachable' cargo door check in 1992 for Ford's E-Series van. Production by Multimatic continued throughout the entire vehicle life (2014).
  • Multimatic's stamped I-Beam control arm won a PACE innovation award for delivering the performance of a cast or forged equivalent, at reduced cost.
  • In 2004, Ford chose Multimatic to engineer, develop and build the first 'turnkey' race car to be sold through the Ford Racing catalogue. This relationship continues today.
  • With its easy reset feature, the Multimatic resettable pedestrian protection hood hinge system minimizes the consequences of false firings.
  • Multimatic TailgateAssist™ dramatically reduces opening and closing efforts, along with noise and slam loads. Consumers consistently prefer its feel to other solutions.
  • Available with or without an integrated NeedleCheck™, Multimatic BridgelessHinge™ shuns excess material for mass savings.
  • Multimatic BoxStep™ allows easy access to pickup truck box cargo, stowing when not in use, and without impacting vehicle ground clearance.
  • Multimatic Ball&GrooveCheck™ door check became an industry standard upon its introduction in 1993, and has since seen use on 157 different vehicle models.
  • A load-bearing composite floor pan, co-developed by Multimatic as part of a USCAR R&D program, demonstrated a significant weight saving per vehicle.
  • Multimatic StepGate™ has been a popular option on Ford trucks since 2008. A second-generation version is now in production.
