Endurica named winner of the 2020 Tibbetts Award from the U.S. Small Business Administration

  1/19/2021 - Findlay, OH - Endurica LLC has received the 2020 United States Small Business Administration (SBA) Tibbetts Award. The Tibbetts Award recognizes companies that best exemplify the spirit and intent of the SBA’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. Endurica now joins the ranks of past Tibbetts winners, including Qualcomm, 23andMe and Symantec. Of 38 companies recognized nationally this year, Endurica is the only Ohio-based recipient. Company president Dr. William Mars reflected, “I am very proud to receive this prestigious recognition on behalf of our team. We won the U.S. Army as our first paying customer through the SBIR program, and this enabled us to commercialize game-changing tools for analyzing the fatigue performance of elastomers. Over the last decade, we’ve continued to improve our tools and the business. Today, we have a growing user base, six of the top 12 global rubber product producers (by revenue) are using Endurica solutions in their applications, and there are hundreds of trained users globally.” Endurica’s tools and workflows are used by OEMs, by rubber part suppliers and by raw materials suppliers. As part of the honor, Endurica is highlighted on the SBA website which notes, “Endurica was founded to help the industry get durability right by revolutionizing rubber product design throughout the world.”
