Meineke Dealers Select The Group as the 2022 Vendor of the Year 

The Group Named Meineke Dealers Group Vendor of the Year 

One of the key measurements is based on overall satisfaction with the vendor and their program.

The Meineke Dealers Purchasing Cooperative Inc. (MDPCI) has announced Automotive Parts Services Group (The Group) as the winner of the 2022 Vendor of the Year Award. The Group has been a member of the MDPCI Co-op for many years.  Over the past few, The Group has expanded their footprint significantly and now provides parts and services through a vast group of independent parts providers including Auto Pride, Auto Value, Bumper to Bumper, Federated Auto Parts, Parts Plus and Pronto Auto Parts. Vendor of the Year is selected in large part by survey results from the Meineke Dealer group and is awarded based on criteria ranging from the cost and quality of parts and services to the overall ease working with the vendor. One of the key measurements is overall satisfaction with the vendor and their program.

“Our relationship with The Group has been long and steady. Their consistent support of our programs and our dealers is a testament to the true partnership they have provided over the year,” said Ron Soto, executive director of the MDPCI. “Strengthened by more than 5000 outlets throughout North America, The Group promotes a superior selection of high-quality OE, name brand, and exclusive aftermarket products and marketing services to support our dealer network and help them build and maintain customer relationships.”

“On behalf of the team making up The Group, I would like to express how honored we are to be named Vendor of the Year for Meineke Dealers throughout the US and Canada in 2022”, said Mike Peace, VP sales & business development, The Pronto Network Cooperative. “Our partnership with the MDPCI, and each Meineke Dealer we serve, is a relationship we hold in high esteem. We look forward to continued growth as we strengthen the services Meineke Dealers require to grow their independent businesses.”
