GRAPEVINE, Texas — The Automotive Parts Services Group (The Group) has named Motor Parts Manufacturing Inc. and Delphi Technologies P.L.C. as its Co-Man Vendors of the Year.
The awards were announced as part of The Group's virtual conference and trade show, held Aug. 21 for Pronto Smart Choice and Federated Car Care Centers operators.
Group CEO Larry Pavey said the Co-Man awards "differentiate The Group from its competitors and is an important program for our membership, so it is fitting that we recognize those suppliers who demonstrate outstanding commitment to its success."
The Group Co-Man vendor awards, presented annually, recognize supplier partners that "have shown outstanding dedication and support of The Group Co-Man operation and programs."
According to The Group, the Co-Man enterprise began with members deciding to open a jointly owned warehouse. The operation has grown significantly since its inception, The Group said, expanding numerous times to meet demand from members.
"While so many supplier partners did a tremendous job this past year," Mr. Pavey said, "our members selected Motor Parts Manufacturing to receive top honors as Co-Man Vendor of the Year. We congratulate them on earning this prestigious recognition."
Yantai, China-based Motor Parts Manufacturing Inc. is a global supplier of automotive brake products, with more than two decades of manufacturing and engineering experience.
London-based Delphi Technologies was recognized as Co-Man Vendor of the Year for Order Fill.
"Order fill is vital to our members and during this challenging year, Delphi Technologies really stood out," Mr. Pavey said. "We commend Delphi for their consistently high order fill rates and congratulate them on earning this esteemed award."
