INDUSTRY, Calif. – Centric Parts announced it has again been awarded a Friction Materials Standards Institute (FMSI) Award for contributions to the automotive industry. This is the 12th year in a row that Centric Parts has been recognized by FMSI, continuing an unbroken streak dating back to the award’s inception in 2003.
 
FMSI honored Centric Parts for "New Assignments & Applications" in 2014, acknowledging Centric’s ongoing status as the single-largest contributor to identifying new applications for the FMSI system.
 
FMSI President Patrick Healey presented this year’s plaque to Centric Parts Product Manager Mario Figueroa. Figueroa leads a group of researchers, engineers and technicians at Centric that is responsible for gathering and examining new model year vehicle components to identify carryover parts and to catalog new ones to be entered into the FMSI registry. This year alone, the Centric Parts team was responsible for adding more than 260 new numbers to the FMSI database.
 
“I’m honored to accept this award on behalf of the whole team at Centric Parts,” said Figueroa. “This is for everyone in our research department. It’s really a group effort – all of us working hard to help keep Centric first-to-market with new applications every year.”
 
The Friction Materials Standards Institute, the organization behind the FMSI Award, was founded in 1948 to maintain a standardized part numbering system used by the automotive aftermarket friction industry, and to disseminate to its members scientific, engineering, technological, statistical and other relevant information. The FMSI Award program was started 11 years ago to recognize companies that excel in actively contributing information and research to support the system.
