The Automotive Parts Services Group (the Group) presented its Co-Man Vendor of the Year award to KYB Americas Corp.

The Co-Man Vendor of the Year for Order Fill award went to Fram Group IP LLC’s Autolite division.

“At The Group, the Co-Man operation is a big difference-maker in the marketplace and it is important to our membership that the vendors who participate in Co-Man fully support it,” says Larry Pavey, CEO of The Group. “The KYB team consistently does an outstanding job supporting the Co-Man program, and members of The Group agreed by selecting them for this prestigious honor.”

Presented annually, The Group Co-Man vendor awards honor supplier partners who have shown outstanding dedication and support of The Group Co-Man operation and programs.

The Co-Man enterprise began with members deciding to open a jointly-owned warehouse. The operation has seen significant growth each year since its inception, expanding numerous times to meet the rapidly growing demand of members.

“High order fill rates are valued by members of The Group. Autolite delivered consistently high order fill rates, allowing them to meet the needs of their customers,” says Pavey. “We congratulate them on this award and thank all supplier partners who participate in Co-Man for their continued support of this very important program.”
