Bedside Rack System Inventor Wins Launch Pad Competition


Matt Beenen of Builtright Industries was named the winner of the sixth annual SEMA Launch Pad, presented by the Young Executives Network (YEN).

Builtright's 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 tools and equipment. The Bedside Rack System requires no modification and is easy to install with basic hand tools, according to the company.

The Launch Pad competition features young inventors and entrepreneurs pitching their business or invention to a panel of industry personalities at the SEMA Show. This year's SEMA Launch Pad competition included more than 80 applicants. Beenen competed in the last stage against nine other finalists to prove that his product was the best in 2018.
