We are thrilled to announce that Alex Parker, President of Redline Detection, has been awarded the prestigious 2023 Orange County Business Journal Innovator of the Year Award.
In a few short years, Redline has gone from a mechanical manufacturer to leading the field in software-based battery diagnostic technology for e-mobility, developing technology that facilitates the safe adoption of EV's. This innovation has expanded Redline Detection’s footprint to 160 countries around the world.
"We are in one of the greatest technology renaissance periods of our lifetime," Parker told the
Business Journal. This prestigious award further fuels our pride in being an American manufacturer and accelerates our drive toward innovation.”
Redline, which designs and manufactures tools for the automotive aftermarket and automakers in 160 countries, has become a recognized industry leader. With the rise of e-mobility, Parker chose to invest in EV battery diagnostics, establishing a business unit dedicated to the sector and adding a second building at its headquarters, doubling its real estate footprint. Redline's headquarters facility brings together engineering, design and manufacturing units. Parker also works to invest in future entrepreneurs; she has mentored over 100 students during her career through an internship program she started at Redline in 2009.
“This award is a great honor for our entire team at Redline. We went from being an analog tool manufacturer to engineering globally adopted, software-driven battery diagnostic technology for e-mobility.” According to Parker, “Redline will be accelerating development of future technologies and not tapping the brakes when it comes to innovation.”
