Matt Beenen, Builtright Industries

Matt's product, Bedside Rack System stood out and impressed the team of automotive industry judges. The BuiltRight Industries Bedside Rack System adds modular mounting panels to the inside walls of a normally featureless truck bed, enabling users to quickly and securely mount their choice of tools, equipment and accessories. These OEM fit and finish steel panels require no modification. Easy installation with basic hand tools! BuiltRight Industries is dedicated to Matt's father, who passed away unexpectedly in 2008. "He was an extremely hard worker and always impressed upon me the importance of having something to call your own, no matter how small. For my 14th birthday, he gave me a $1200 no-interest small business loan to buy my first real computer and build blue-bubble.com, a free online local classifieds service. Many years later, in February of 2017, I decided to see what I could do with the same $1200 - BuiltRight Industries was born. It's modest, but it's mine."
