The Automotive Parts Services Group (The Group) has presented excellence in vendor support awards to two of its members.
APW Knox-Seeman Warehouse of Carson, Calif., and Parts Authority of Rockville Centre, N.Y., earned top honors by supporting the highest number of supplier partners approved by The Group.
Their awards were presented at The Group meeting in Kauai, Hawaii, by Rusty Bishop, CEO of Federated Auto Parts, and Bill Maggs, CEO of National Pronto Association.
“APW Knox-Seeman and Parts Authority are leading the way by working with our supplier partners, supporting their sales programs and, in turn, helping their customers be more successful,” says Larry Pavey, CEO of The Group. “Without the strong vendor support by our membership, The Group would not be the tremendously successful venture it is today. We want to thank all of our members who have realized that the power of collaboration benefits every one of our member, vendor and customer stakeholders.”
