Standard Motor Products (SMP) announced that it is the recipient of the 2021 Spirit of NAPA trophy, presented at NAPA Auto Parts’ Vendor Summit and Supplier Awards Banquet on May 25.

At the awards banquet, NAPA recognizes top suppliers for their contributions in categories such as quality, innovation, cataloging and sales leadership. The highlight of the evening is the presentation of the prestigious Spirit of NAPA trophy, NAPA’s top honor.

This year, SMP was honored as the 2021 Spirit of NAPA award winner, as a testament to SMP’s significant impact on NAPA’s success.

“The Spirit of NAPA encompasses market leadership, outstanding products and service, and a firm commitment to winning the right way with integrity,” said Jamie Walton, NAPA’s executive vice president & chief merchandising officer. “Equally as impressive was the fact that despite a sales increase beyond expectations and global supply challenges, this supplier maintained a fill rate well above the Industry.”

“We are delighted and humbled to have been awarded NAPA’s top honor,” SMP CEO and President Eric Sills said. “We believe that the partnership between NAPA and SMP creates a powerful combination, one which has yielded tremendous success in the marketplace. “We recognize that to be successful, we need to do just about everything right, so I thank both NAPA and the thousands of SMP employees who contributed to this win.”
