WIX Filters Hosts Alliance Service Center Advisory Council Meeting in Charlotte

In addition to the 10 Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper SCAC members flying in from the United States and Canada, several key staff members from Alliance headquarters will be in attendance.

WIX Filters is hosting this spring’s Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance Service Center Advisory Council (SCAC) meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina, which kicks off April 24.

In addition to the 10 Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper SCAC members flying in from the United States and Canada, several key staff members from Alliance headquarters will be in attendance.

“This meeting is a unique opportunity for us to get together with some of our top shop owners and really take a deep dive into what makes Auto Value or Bumper to Bumper their preferred parts supplier,” said Pat Winters, chairman of the Alliance’s Sales & Marketing Committee. “The feedback we receive at these meetings gives us the edge as a program group.”

During the three-day meeting, attendees plan to discuss challenges with the Alliance’s Certified Service Center (CSC) program and brainstorm improvement opportunities. As some of Auto Value, Bumper to Bumper and Confidence Plus’s top shop owners, the SCAC members bring unique perspective and profound insight to the discussions.

Additionally, WIX Filters is treating the attendees to a facility tour, meet and greet as well as a minor league baseball game, meals and much more. One highlight in the coming days will be an informative focus group administered by WIX.

“WIX Filters is a tremendous manufacturing channel partner for Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper,” said J.C. Washbish, vice president of marketing for the Alliance. “WIX is a fantastic host and will surely benefit from the candid feedback of these top shop owners. As our host, they have the exclusive opportunity to meet with these folks and get some serious one-on-one time.”

Council members are appointed to the exclusive council because of their expertise as an Auto Value, Bumper to Bumper or Confidence Plus CSC shop owner. Each member serves for two years. An annual rotation replaces five members.

The meeting will wrap up April 26.
