The Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance has named Valvoline the 2018 Channel Partner of the Year. Valvoline was welcomed to the stage as this year’s winner during the Alliance’s annual Channel Partner supplier awards ceremony at Turnberry Isle in Aventura, Florida.

“Valvoline is honored to have been selected by the Alliance Shareholders as the Channel Partner of the Year,” stated Christa Bryant, director of marketing at Valvoline. “The Alliance plays an important role in our future, and we are grateful for their partnership. Valvoline looks forward to launching new, innovative products and programs with the Alliance in 2019 and the years ahead.”
