Centric Parts, a division of APC Automotive Technologies and North America’s leading manufacturer and supplier of aftermarket brake and chassis components and systems, has received the prestigious “Outstanding Shipping Performance Award” from the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance. This is the second consecutive year that Centric Parts has received the honor, which was given in recognition of the 95 percent or greater fill rate that Centric Parts was able to deliver throughout the calendar year for all product lines including drums and rotors, friction and hydraulics.

Complete and on-time delivery is obviously crucial to Alliance’s business, which is why they make it a point to recognize supplier-partners that excel in fill rate performance. We continue to drive Centric Parts further into Alliance’s distribution model with the right products that help make them successful year-over-year.”
