The Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance Inc. has named Valvoline LLC its 2018 Channel Partner of the Year.

Valvoline was welcomed to the stage as this year’s winner during the Alliance’s annual Channel Partner supplier awards ceremony at Turnberry Isle in Aventura, Fla.

“Valvoline is honored to have been selected by the Alliance shareholders as the Channel Partner of the Year,” said Christa Bryant, director of marketing at Valvoline. “The Alliance plays an important role in our future and we are grateful for their partnership. Valvoline looks forward to launching new innovative products and programs with the Alliance in 2019 and the years ahead.”

“They have been a fantastic partner for our Alliance members. They went over the top in their support for our national sweepstakes, the Kentucky Horsepower Promotion last May and during our Race to Charlotte NASCAR event in September. The Alliance appreciates Valvoline’s commitment to the success of Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper.”
