WHY Greenville, SC? 

South Carolina’s automotive industry originated in the early 1900's with Milliken & Company as a manufacturer of fabric seats and roofs for Henry Ford’s gasoline-powered cars. The Upstate is now home to BMW, Michelin, Milliken, and South Carolina's new Inland Port. More than 12 Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) including startups like Proterra - maker of electric busses - and numerous suppliers are in South Carolina.  With over 250 companies making up a growing automotive network, the state is ranked second in the U.S. for automotive exports. Nearby, Clemson University is one of the few packaging science undergraduate degree programs in the U.S. and Greenville's CU-ICAR is the only graduate degree program for Automotive Engineering in the U.S. - combine these factors and more for one powerful regional and national influence.  

October 10th, 2019 - 3rd ANNUAL EVENT

AutoPack Summit addresses an unmet need - spotlighting the critical link, inherent value, and resulting opportunities of packaging in the automotive supply chain, SKD, and aftermarket process. The summit brings subject matter experts and industry leaders together for both visionary keynote presentations for tomorrow's strategy and practical insights on supply chain tactics for today.  


The goal of this event is for OEMs and Tier 1 part suppliers to discuss, collaborate, and unveil innovations within the packaging value chain. Packaging providers will be in attendance and showcasing the latest in packaging technologies. The summit will be a highly productive session that rises the tides for everyone that touches automotive packaging.

The 2019 event will be held October 10. Sponsorship opportunities for 2019 are now open.
