The award is in recognition of having enhanced the commitment and contribution of small businesses through service to customers and the community.
“This is a tremendous honor and we want to thank USTCI for recognizing FMI Automotive with this prestigious award,” said John Wall, CEO of FMI Automotive, a Panama City Beach-based single-source aftermarket manufacturer of premium-quality water pumps.
“FMI is committed to providing our customers with outstanding support and service, so it is very gratifying to be acknowledged for that commitment. I want to thank every member of the FMI team, as this award truly belongs to them.”

Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
