Sanel Auto Parts Co. recognized five partners at its 2017 Vendor Awards Ceremony this past December. The “Automotive Supplier of the Year” was awarded to Standard Motor Products Inc., and the “Paint, Body & Equipment Supplier of the Year” went to 3M; the “Heavy Duty Truck Parts Supplier of the Year” was presented to Tenneco; the “Parts Plus Private Label Supplier of the Year” was presented to DuraGo (represented by Seth Johnson Sales); and the “Tool & Equipment Supplier of the Year” was presented to CRC (represented by Grinold-O’Brien Agency).
This is the second year Sanel has honored its vendors at its annual year-end dinner. Vendors were recognized for their ability to implement and maintain the following: a premium line of products with innovative new product introductions, a robust logistics process to assist inventory control, an increase in sales through marketing support and a strong field representation to educate team members and end-users, featuring best practices for product use. These areas of excellence align closely with Sanel’s own dedication toward industry education and leadership, exemplified by their memberships with the Auto Care Association, I-CAR Council, NH Collision Repair Advisory of the NHADA and support of the University of the Aftermarket.
