STAUNTON, Va. (May 20, 2014) — Three Federated Auto Parts member companies were honored during the company’s annual national meeting, April 30-May 3 in Phoenix.
Indianapolis-based TBA & Oil Warehouse was named Federated Co-Man Member of the Year. Accepting the award for TBA were Charlie Crouse and Ryan Wrege. This award is presented annually “to the participating member that has shown outstanding dedication and support of the member-owned Federated Co-Man warehouse operation and its programs,” Federated said.
The company added a new award this year—the inaugural Federated Car Care Excellence Award—presented to Cold Air Distributors of Florida and Parts Distributing Milwaukee. It recognizes Federated members “who have excelled at implementing the Federated Car Care program.”
Federated CEO Rusty Bishop thanked the three award winners “for their exceptional commitment to the success of Federated and its programs.
“Federated is a successful organization because of its member involvement, support and collaboration, so it is with great pleasure that we recognize these three outstanding members with well-deserved awards.”
