Mighty's 50th Anniversary Year Sets All-Time Sales Record

Mighty’s 50th Anniversary Year Sets All-Time Sales Record

Company reports 5.4 percent increase in sales over previous year.

 

NORCROSS, Ga. — Following its 50th year in business, Mighty Auto Parts President and CEO Ken Voelker hailed 2013 as a golden year.
“The icing on the cake from our 50th celebration was a hefty sales increase of 5.4 percent over the previous year, which represents the best year ever in our company’s history. It shows our unique business model is resonating with customers here and abroad.”

Voelker cited one of the company’s reasons for growth as “a focus on dynamic product lines like our premium VS7 chemicals, tire service products  and meeting the product needs of emerging market segments like new car dealerships. Our international sales and expansion into Canada also contributed to our record year and bode well for Mighty in 2014 and beyond.”
