Federal-Mogul Corp. was selected as 2011 Vendor of the Year by the 53 shareholders of the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance, one of the world’s largest automotive parts distribution and marketing organizations. The award was presented during the Alliance Group’s annual winter meeting in Aventura, Fla.
The 2011 award marks the fourth time since 2001 that Federal-Mogul has been honored as the top manufacturer serving the Alliance, the company notes. This year’s award was based on Federal-Mogul’s exceptional performance in several key areas, including product availability, working capital reduction, customer support, training, marketing programs, and field sales support.
The award was presented to Federal-Mogul executives by Eli Futerman, Alliance chairman and co-president and CEO of Hahn Automotive.
“This is one of the most significant awards presented to an aftermarket manufacturer, and we are very proud to accept it on behalf of the entire Federal-Mogul team,” says Paul Johnson, vice president, North America, Federal-Mogul Global Aftermarket. “This isn’t simply about doing one thing very well, but truly excelling in several areas that ultimately help drive the success of Alliance members. This level of excellence is our goal each and every year.”
Alliance Group shareholders and their more than 2,300 wholly-owned and affiliated Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper stores carry a full complement of Federal-Mogul brands and products, including ANCO wipers, Carter fuel delivery products, Champion spark plugs, MOOG steering and suspension products, National bearings and seals, Precision universal joints, Sealed Power engine parts, Wagner brake products, and Wagner lighting components.
