Engine Pro Honors 2 Manufacturers With Performance Awards

The awards were announced at Engine Pro’s annual supplier meeting held in Dallas, Texas.

Two automotive aftermarket suppliers were recently honored with performance awards by Engine Parts Group, Inc., also known as Engine Pro.

S.A. Gear Inc. captured the group’s Opportunity Award. This award is presented to the Engine Pro supplier who in the past year has provided outstanding profit margins and other financial incentives such as rebates, product promotional opportunities and other profit potential. 

S. A. Gear also received the Fulfillment and Accuracy Award. This award is presented to the Engine Pro supplier who in the past year has achieved excellent order fill and on-time delivery along with superior order accuracy. 

The third award, the Good Steward Award, was presented to Melling Engine Parts, Inc. This recognition is earned by the supplier who has maintained superior marketing practices along with sales and marketing assistance.

Upon receiving the two top supplier awards, S.A. Gear’s President & CEO, Sal Abdallah, said, “at SA Gear, we pride ourselves with providing our customers the highest quality timing products.  We successfully altered our business model to maintain high order fill and delivery during the pandemic and will continue into the new year.  Being a U.S. manufacturer helped us avoid many of the supply chain issues other suppliers face.”

Laura Short, Melling’s Vice President North American Aftermarket Sales, stated, “Melling is honored to be recognized by Engine Parts Group, Inc.  It is a privilege to partner with a group of forward-thinking customers to achieve a common goal.  These collaborations have allowed us to celebrate our 75th Anniversary in serving the automotive industry.”
