WIX Filters Earns Top Supplier Award From Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance

Wednesday, 09 January 2002

WIX Filters was recently recognized for its superior distribution capabilities by one of the country’s leading automotive aftermarket organizations.

WIX Filters received an award for outstanding shipping performance from the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance, which is comprised of All Pro, Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper. WIX was the sole recipient in the category of fill rate shipping performance. The award was given to WIX Filters for consistently having the highest ship/fill rate of any other supplier.

Bill Sheehan, Vice President, Sales, for Wix Filtration Products stated, “It’s always gratifying when customers recognize you as being the best of the best.” Sheehan added that the measure of this accomplishment is even greater when you consider the fact that WIX’s competition included not just other filter manufactures, but the automotive aftermarket as a whole.

The award was presented on December 4 in Miami Beach at the annual winter membership meeting. Accepting on behalf of WIX were Terry McCormack, President of the Dana Automotive Aftermarket Group; John Washbish, President of the Dana Under Hood Group; Keith Wilson, Vice President & General Manager of Wix and Bill Sheehan.
