Auto Parts has kicked off its 25th anniversary celebration. The
celebration began at Federated’s annual meeting held earlier this
month, where a special 25th anniversary logo was unveiled.
Headquartered in Staunton, Va., Federated Auto Parts was founded in
1985 by the late Art Fisher and Rusty Bishop, who currently serves as
“The main reason Federated has thrived over the
past 25 years is because of the support and commitment of our members.
Without them, there would be no Federated,” said Bishop. “Our annual
meeting is a great time to gather with colleagues and meet with
supplier partners. It is also a time to take a moment and celebrate the
success of the past year and the past 25 years.”
Federated annual meeting began April 15 in Phoenix, Ariz., and will run
through April 17. In addition to presentations from select Federated
supplier partners, Federated members also have the opportunity to meet
one-on-one with manufacturers. Each year an awards dinner is held to
recognize members and suppliers who have demonstrated outstanding
performance in the past year.
“We want to thank all of our
members, as well as our manufacturing partners, who took time out of
their busy schedules to come to Phoenix for a few days and work
together to make the coming year successful for everyone,” concluded
